El's Christening

I made this invitation last Friday for my nephew Elijah's baptismal (which takes place today). It was Ayie's (my younger sister/Elijah's mother) birthday yesterday, that's why they decided to have the ceremony on almost the same date. Ayie approved of the design (she was breathing down my neck the whole time I was making the invitation), and I'm glad it turned out great. We posted it on her Facebook account as soon as it was finished (no sense printing it as everyone she invited to attend were on Facebook). It was so much better than the one I made for Svet's own baptismal because I didn't know where to go for my resources back then. Elements were from the Christening Kit freebie of Scrap Happy Manda Designs (please visit her page right here if you want to grab it for your own layout) and the gorgeous wordart is made by Bethany of Elegant WordArt (go here if you want to download it for yourself). Fonts used are Affair (that lovely script type I am so in love with right now) and Trajan Pro Bold.



Here is my nephew at the church, looking like a corrupt congressman. Hahaha!

Can I just say that he looks absolutely FAB? not in a gay kind of way of course. Next month will be my little Sanjo's christening as well. I guess no need to make invites since it's just MY family who's attending. LOL. :)
(P.S. : I have my PR back!)
