Sarah's Christening.

I was blessed to be the midwife for my good friends Louise & Chris (Lou is a midwife too) when Lou birthed her gorgeous daughter Sarah back in February, and was thrilled to be able to attend Sarah's Christening on Sunday. I had made a Name Frame for one of my friend's daughters a while back & thought that would be a nice idea for Sarah. For reasons that I won't go into to, many midwives do not like images of butterflies and I wasn't quite sure what else to do. Finally I thought of my heart punch and thought that would be ok. I printed the text on my computer using this fantastic website to get the right RGB values for SU colours. I used 'Raspberry Tart' DSP (ret) as I love the colours and Sarah has bright pink 'In the Night Garden' sheets. The frame came from Big W.

Forgive the photo, I took it in a hurry on my phone as I was about to leave, as my camera batteries were playing up. You can see my reflection in the glass :-(
(The verse is Jeremiah 29:11, a fav of mine).

I didn't have any Christening type stamps so went with a card that co-ordinated with the frame:

I got the inspiration for the layout from this post. I can't stop using the 'Modern Label' punch, I have been wanting it for so long and it is fab for giving a frame to the 'Word Window' punch.

Lou seemed happy with the frame, I also added a little book from Koorong to complete the gift. It was a lovely morning despite the fact that I worked the night before and ended up being awake for about 20 hrs before crashing out on the lounge!

Thanks for visiting,
