Children are Love made Visisble

A friend had a grandson born recently so I made this framed welcome for the baby. I absolutely love the and believe the sentiment I used. As a mother of teenager, sometimes it is difficult to remember this, but I always tried to tell all my colleagues in teaching that every child is someone`s baby. So, the sentiment works for me. I used Magnolias boy stamps. I find it hard to find stamps suitable for boys but here are two. I colored them with Prismacolored Pencils and OMS. I really do love the way you can blend and shade with these pencils.
I used the heart nestibility for a name tag and of course the JustRite rectangular stamper with the Brampton font. I used Hunter Green and Ballet Blue for the ink. The edges were distressed with Close to Cocoa.
I used Gold Detail to emboss the butterflies and colored them with Twinkling H2Os. The Magnolis vs Stampavie Challenge this week is to use a bow so I placed mine outside on the frame. I attached it with Zots and used the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch to hide the spots where the tales were attached to the frame.
Stamps: Magnolia Edwin, Inkadinkado Butterflies
Paper: Pocket Full of Posies from DCVW
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Heart Nestibility, MS Butterfly punch, $store frame, MS ribbon, Gold Detail embossing powder

I agree, it's hard to find the right "boy" images. These Magnolia's totally work and I LOVE what you've come up with, Heather. The frame is gorgeous and I'm sure any mum would appreciate it!! The sentiment is so true!
