Girls Night Out

Girls Night Out (1)

Evening all. It’s time new challenge over at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog. The theme is always Anything Goes but you have to use an All Dressed Up image.

I’ve just spent the weekend at a Hotel & Spa for my Niece's Hen-D0 and one of the Bridesmaids asked me to make a guestbook for all the guests to sign and this is what I made using Girls Night Out which is an All Dressed Up rubberstamp from LDRS Creative:

Girls Night Out (2)

It took me a while to make the book, but I love it and I am pleased to say the Bride-to-Be loved it too.

Girls Night Out (3)

I followed these videos: Everlasting Mini Album Binding & Adding Pages (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKLZV1lWVLs&t=873s) and Everlasting Covers and Closures (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ameEOliE6M&t=2334s) to make the book, but made it to my own size and pages to fit the purpose.
