    great idea! I'll give it a try & let everyone know. I'll have to figure out what I can write without messing up the book. I imagine a thin tip sharpie would work. I'll check it out when i get home.

      Maybe on the back page you can write "made with love" or something.. My concerns is

      1) the ink will smudge
      or
      2) the ink will stop writing (if that makes sence)

      But I would test it out first I'd hate if you found out the day of your wedding that it didn't work. I'm sure their is a special pen you can buy, hmm maybe go to a scrapbook store and ask them, I'm sure they will know what to use.

          I'm thinking about remaking the book, so this one could be my test copy. I've been playing around with photoshop lately & think I could do much cooler stuff with my pictures. I'm also considering buying lumapix & then I can make my books much nicer. I rushed to make this one because I had a free book coupon about to expire. But now I have a bunch of ideas of how to make it better.

            I saw somewhere on The Knot, the couple had a frame asking people to sign their book, but to also wait a moment for the page to try before closing it or turning the page to avoid the smudges.

                  Morgan, I love this idea. i also added a quotes about love under each picture and then space like you did for people to sign. I'll have to remember to make a sign for people not to turn the page too quickly. good thinking!!

                      I couldn't find a fine tip sharpie at home. I keep forgetting to get one. A regular sharpie works. I also read on a website that sells these (but not shutterfly) that you can write on them with a fine tip sharpie.
