We only did it on the pockets (not the pockets AND the back) and most of ours fell off in the mail. It was also freezing cold which took the stickiness away but just a little tip! :) Amyh may have mentioned that in her thread too.

      Hi JMB! I am so glad you found my thread! I wanted you to know that I did actually use your template. People think it's really cool, as do I! I think yours look cooler but I totally love the template! It's definitely one of my favorite on BDW! Thanks again for sharing and thanks for the compliments

      ooohhh, I get it now! :) The flower is actually a custom stamp that I had made. I think I was on drugs when I developed the whole concept. I knew what I was looking for and couldn't find it over a couple of months of searching. Then I finally found some info online that I could use any piece of paper or image to create my own design. I knew I had found some online retailers that create custom stamps from black and white images. I searched 8 different scrapbook stores for paper with a pattern I loved. I found a few and then I had to scan the paper. The scanned image was opened in Photoshop and changed to black and white. Then we had to isolate the image and clean it up a bit (took about 9 hours). THEN I sent the 300dpi image to the stamp creator and the stamp was born.

      Haha, that was really long winded but to the make the story short I don't have the stamp because it's somewhere back in the US and I'm in Africa now. Sorry I can't be more help. I may have the image somewhere still if you think you want to order your own stamp.

            haha, thanks for this. I used to read the planning threads as soon as they came out, but I'm sooooo behind now so I just now saw this.

            Everything turned out great. I really like your guest book.
