Memorial Guest Book

Well, it's never a great job making these.  In fact we are recycling this memorial book.  My husband's Mother passed away this week and we are using his Dad's book.

For the technical aspects... I cut off the ribbon to unbind the book, created the additional pages and went to rebind the book.  Uh-oh.  I don't have any more of that ribbon and we have to be on the road in a few minutes...  Tim Holtz Distress stains to the rescue.  I'm just doing this post while I wait for the ribbon to dry...  Between Tea Dye and Frayed Burlap, I got a good match - better than the original.

Here is the original book

And here is the lettering


Thanks to Therese.  She and Jean-Marie did a wonderful job with seven beautiful, intelligent children.  I was lucky enough to marry one of her sons.  There is no question, she can rest in peace.

Thanks for stopping by.  Suzanne
