DIY Guest Book Done*YAY* PIP (heavy

So after working on this for several hours last night and a few hours today (along with getting higher res. photos from the photog), this is what I came up with...
btw, thanks for suggesting sites to use ladies, I ended up going with Mixbooks

    Sure! lol. Is there something specific you're having problems with? I worked off of the Mixbooks blank canvas and then did the layout myself (however they have tones of UBER CUTE premade layouts too).
     
    So, I started with determining how many "signing" pages that I wanted and then I decided on the layout type. , personally, decided to go wtih larger images with smaller accents as opposed to using several smaller images which would give you more of a traditional look (b/c of its block-y-ness). Its just up to your personal style.

    then i just started placing the images and coming up with fun little things for the guests to write/comment on. Oh, also, make sure to play with fonts and not just background colors, etc. Fonts can give you another dimension. Lastly I went through and looked accents to give the pages another layer of depth. As you can see, I just went with a simple black silhouette of (what looks like) branches - we're getting married in a garden so I thought it fit.  :)

    need any more help/questions let me know. :) I'm all ears :)

    It's those little details like the different fonts and graphics that really caught my attention. I haven't ordered my book yet b/c I could tell that something was missing; I may have to go back and play with it a little.
