This is how I helped to celebrate the occasion!
It is a tradition to give my grandchildren a set of scriptures
and a scripture tote for their eighth birthdays.
I sewed her up a custom scripture tote.
and a matching book mark.
The tote began with a store bought placemat.
I added handles, a tie shut, and a handmade fabric flower.
Her baptism was the next day.
It is a baptism day tradition to give my grandchildren
a keepsake box for their baptism momentos.
I always began with a white photo storage box.
On this one I added eyelet lace trim and a
flowered and lace/velcro band as a box closure.
I made the flower using three different widths of white eyelet lace.
Following the baptism I helped her mom put on
a luncheon for the very special occasion.
The table centerpieces were fresh flowers in large canning
jar vases tied with a ribbon.
A different framed picture of the guest of honor
was also placed on each table.
It was a great day with family and friends.
My granddaughter had never looked more beautiful.
She is a precious daughter of God that I am
very blessed and honored to call my granddaughter.
