dress inspiration book

I decided that I wanted to contain all the pics of wedding dresses I'd torn out of magazines in one place along with the articles about what sorts of questions to ask when ordering a dress, etc. so that when I went shopping I could just take them with me easily. While waiting for the clock to finally tick to time to leave to pick my mom up from the airport (I was so excited to go get here and time was dragging.) I distracted myself by putting together this little book with some 11x17 cardstock, a few scrapbook paper scraps leftover from a project I did to decorate my classroom, some felt ribbon I bought at the one and only time I have stood outside The Container Store early in the morning on the day after Christmas, a tag, what I thought was one of those rub on quotes but ended up actually just being wording on vellum that I rubbed and rubbed and wondered why it wasn't transferring :), a silk flower embellishment and a scrap of ribbon. It must have done the trick because I HAVE A DRESS! It's beautiful and presently being made in Spain! For some reason, I really like that fun fact. :)
