Baby Shower - Guest Book

I wanted to make a guest book that could be displayed instead of just put on a shelf, so I decided to do the tree/thumbprint "book" that I've seen on etsy and pinterest. Most people use it for their weddings, but I think it'll work just fine as a baby shower "book" too.

I used an 8x12 canvas I had on hand and sketched out a tree,

painted it in with some brown acrylic paint,

bought a green sharpie and two shades of green ink,

and went ahead and left my thumbprint and name as an example for other guests.

You can see in the top sketch I left an empty spot under the tree, and I'm planning on doing a birth stats thing like this

and adding it to it after the baby is born.

Tomorrow I'll share with you my second attempt at a diaper cake. Check out my first diaper cake in my very first post!
