Just a quick post before we head off to visit Laddu's parents. I wanted to show you a guest book I made for Laddu's mom, I think it turned out really pretty! Laddu's parents are throwing an engagment party for us/anniversary party for Laddu's brother and wife. And if you know anything about the indian culture, they don't do little dinner parties, they go BIG! For this party there is going to be probably around 200-250 people! Crazy, huh? Laddu's mom mentioned awhile ago wanting to get a guest book and I thought that could be an area where I could do something since she's been doing all of the planning and decorating so far. A couple of christmas' ago I made them a photo album using maroon and gold satin. I sewed a pattern onto the maroon with gold thread and sequins. It turned out beautiful, but took awhile to do! I didn't have much time this time so I used the left over fabric I had from that project, used the heart background stamp from Sealed With A Kiss, stamped all over the maroon fabric with gold ink and came up with this:-) I really like the result and am excited about giving it to her! Better run, hope you all have a good weekend!
