Unique Gift Idea for the Bride: Bridal Beauty Scrapbook of all the Wedding Events, Bridal Showers and Parties
Creating a scrapbook of all the bridal events for the year is a great keepsake and gift for a bride! A couple years ago, I started up a scrapbook whirlwind by making 2 books for my girlfriends that were getting married in 2012.

Peretti Left Behind series Walking on Water - Madeleine L'Engle, a gift from my dear friend Melanie And the Shofar Blew - Francince Rivers Sarah's Key - Tatiana de Rosnay, borrowed from my mama The Calling - Brother Andrew, a book series my husband loves Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle C.S. Lewis Signature Classics Game of Thrones series, on the third book of the series The Host - Stephanie Meyer, I loved the Twilight books but this one always sounded too scary for
