Child Dedication Sign in a Gold Frame

Our hospitality team at church was asked 
to provide a cake for child dedication day next week.  

The pastor suggested that instead of having "Congratulations" 
put on the cake, where it would be eaten and not seen, 
we should make a sign to put up near the cake.  

I decided to take on this fun project.  
Unfortunately my enthusiasm got the better of me at first.  

I initially started with a pink background!  
Not my best idea, since this is supposed to be for all the kids, 
not just girls.  

Then I tried a green background but the letters 
I bought were huge, and the green was 
too dark for the mood I wanted to convey.  

Finally I decided to use a pale yellow and it worked!  
Then I bought some packets of letters 
and I used a plate to try to arrange 
them in a pleasing and even shape.

Here is the plate as I attempted to attach the letters.  

The plate worked great!  

The letters were fine but I didn't have enough to make all of the words using the same type of font.  So I'm not happy with the word "PARENTS".  I'm living with it, hoping that I will be satisfied before Sunday.  If not, I'm going to have to break down and buy another packet of letters!!

What do you think of my finished result?

I hope you get the chance to be creative today!

  1. In all honesty, I didn't notice about the letters until you said something (and even then, it took you specifically pointing out which word for me to notice). I think it looks great, just the way it is. :)

  2. Thank you for saying that! I know supposedly we are all harder on ourselves, but sometimes a project's flaws just jump out!! Thanks for the kind words :-) ~Lori
