What did I get myself into?

When I made the first 20-page colouring book mock-up, I was under the impression that we had about three or four little people coming to the wedding. After glancing at the guest list, I realized that it's more in the ballpark of up to fifteen. It's too late though, I've fallen in love with the colouring book idea. It must be done.

Here are a few photos of the mockup. The real ones will all be sewn (saddle stitched) with cream-coloured, heavy card-stock covers; either black or eggplant linen book tape on the spines; the little kiddy's name and a different animal on each cover.

And yes, I purposefully chose the quirkiest animals that I could find. I scanned the caricature that Luc and I had done at the wedding soiree in January and tooled it around a bit in photoshop. I'm happy with the way that it turned out - it matches the line-drawing style of the strange looking animals.


  1. What a cute and clever idea! Great reception favour, plus it'll keep the kids occupied.

  2. I have never seen this before. What a great idea

  3. Ohh! Love them.

    Unrelated, it might be that I'm dirty, but the detail on your monthly heading looks like boobs.

    Sorry. Love ya!
