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!
