more shower-y things



This is the cover of the guestbook for the baby shower. It's a guestbook / advice book- where guests can either leave a kind word for momma and baby or advice for the new mom {if they themselves are mothers or they got some great advice from their parents that they'd like to pass on!}. Updated photos and added details

I started with the background paper, because I specifically bought this K&Co pad for the grey and yellow papers it had in the set {it's called the WB Gypsy Baby Paper Pad}. I had also bought the sentiment specifically for the guestbook I knew I'd be making. I fell in love with the Travel Frames set a while ago, and thanks to a Michaels discount coupon, I finally bought them! Loving them already. I decided to use two of them on a tag that i wanted to attach to the front to document the date and time of the shower. This elephant tag from a K&Co tag set was perfect to go with the shower's elephant theme! I decided to tie the tag to the ribbon binding, so after placing the tag, I then placed the sentiment accordingly. I had some free space and knew I wanted something there but nothing overpowering. So I had some new Memento dew drops, one in a deep yellow, paired with the heidi grace baby stamp set and it worked like a charm! The sentiment is really perfect, because not only will this baby be loved by her parents of course, but the shower is for her InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and church friends so we will all love this baby as a child of Christ, and also my DH and I are best friends with the momma and daddy so we'll of course always love this baby like our niece/nephew :)
