Jesus said,

Let the children come to me...
Our grandson is getting baptized this Sunday and I made this frame to help celebrate the occasion! It all started with this package of chipboard coasters I purchased from my local dollar store! Take a look at how many are in this bundle! Score! I love the weight, not too thick, but sturdy enough! The frame middle panel has two coasters, a front that is cut using my Spellbinders classic circle die. The sides and bottom are then secured together with 3M thin adhesive foam to give just enough room to slide a picture in place from the top. The two side panels are single coasters.
Pictured are the JustRite products that I utilized, the round 1 3/16" wooden block and the 2 1/4 x 1 3/16" oval wooden block. The new Tiny Words stamps are a wonderful addition to my growing collection of JustRite stamps! I know I will find many uses for them!

Check out the right panel, featuring our grandson's name, Kaylub along with the date of baptism. Each oval is punched out with my Marvy Uchida scallop oval and edges shaded with PTI Spring Rain ink. Both ovals are embellished with a button, adhesive pearl, and ribbon tab. The ribbon is from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store ! Designer paper is from Our Daily Bread Designs! Designer paper is adhered to panels using my Xyron machine and edges shaded.

A quick look at the wooden block setup. I used Memento Tuxedo black ink for all stamping on this frame project. The left and middle panel utilize stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs. The set is called Children of God. I cut the word blessings away from one of the sentiments and it works wonderfully. I will simply place the piece together on my block if I desire to use the sentiment as an entire image.

A look at copic markers used. A beautiful image that indeed conveys the blessing of love that only Jesus brings and how he holds all children in the palm of HIS hand. I stamped many of these rounds using my JustRite Tiny words set to use on various projects. Mounted on the backside of the frames middle panel adds that special touch. This creation was certainly made with love, and will be given with love. It will be a special day. I have been busy making another project for this day! Insert nervous here. I am in the process of sewing Kaylub's baptism outfit from his Mommy's baptism dress that she wore 24 years ago. We'll see how it goes! I hope to take pictures and let you see soon!
Yes indeed, it will be a special day!
Take good care!

Just beautiful Barb and I personally know how special a day is when your Grandchild or your Child gets Baptized. I know it was very special for us when our DD was Baptized. I love every aspect of your creation. Alice R.
