treasured keepsake guestbook

lush life and mr big album for guest signing bookToday's share comes from Julie of Julie Hope, Fine Art Portraits. She writes, "My grandmother celebrated her 80th birthday this past weekend and I wanted to offer the guests a place to sign in and leave greetings that she could keep as a reminder. A memento of the wonderful life she lives and the friends and family that love her so very much! I used a combination of the Mr. Big Album template and the Lush Life Collection Photo Presentation Boxes. Mixing and mingling different elements from both along with scanned photos of my grandmother and her family, I had the perfect mix-Elegant and Vintage. Printed as a 10x10 press printed book with custom photo cover from WHCC. She absolutely LOVED the book and so did all of the guests! Just perfect! Thank you for making such beautiful templates for photographers and designers who just don't have the time to compile all of the pieces from scratch!" Thanks for the fabulous share, Julie! Your $75 gift certificate is on the way~

The result is a sharper image.
