    Hey Everyone...so this was the last DIY project on my list and after humming and hawing I found Beck's Welcome book post and took inspiration from her.

    I haven't taken photos of the book but actually had it printed at Staples. For $40 I got 25 books with 10 pages in each. It was super simple especially with their uploading option online.

    Initially I was going to try and print them myself in colour but ended up choosing to print on coloured paper in black ink. The inside pages are soft pink and the cover is in colour in ivory. They were able to make a booklet for me that is half the size of a normal sheet of paper. Instead of coiling binding which would have been an extra $3.00 a book I went for two staples and they came out wonderfully!

    Here is a PDF of the word document that I submitted. I will post pics when I get back...I can't believe we leave in two days!!! :)

                  When I tried to open the file, it's saying that a file doesn't exist. Is anyone else having this issue?
