For Poppy

I went to a very special Christening on Sunday.  It was for a little girl called Poppy who has made quite an impression on my little man Max over the past 7 months!  Poppy's mum Catharine has quickly become a very good friend of mine since our babies arrival within 3 days of each other.  We met at NCT classes when our babies were just bumps and we, along with 7 other new mummies have formed a really special friendship while experiencing the many new and rewarding challenges that motherhood brings.  
Poppy's Christening gave me an excuse to make a special gift for her and her mummy, a gift that I hope they will treasure.  
I used photos of Poppy and some fitting bits of music sheets including 'eyes o blue' and 'a smile for me' which seemed to sit really well surrounded by all the beautiful smiling pictures of Poppy!  I'm really pleased with how the frame turned out and I hope that they like it too.

I couldn't resist taking a photo of Poppy's super cute shoes on her Christening day and decided to use the picture to make a personal gift tag.
