Earlier this Spring, one of my dear church friends had a beautiful baby girl. The Women's Ministry at our church had a baby shower for sweet Lila Margaret, which happened to be the day before her baptism. At the time, I also happened to be short on cash in the gift-giving budget, but long on ideas for beautiful cookies to celebrate the birth and baptism of this special baby girl, so Momma and Daddy got a gift basket from Sarah's Sweet Shoppe, filled with yummy cookies! ;^)
These "sign" cookies were my first attempt at using a "#1" tip for icing decorations. Even with that small of a tip, it took several tries to squeeze all of those words on the big cookie! ;^)
My wishes for their sweet family!

In the final gift basket, I ended up hiding the small hearts down inside the basket to hold the other cookies in their places better. After this photo was taken, I put the whole thing in a gift bag and tied it with a bow. It was a beautiful gift (if I do say so myself...;^)) and Rachel appreciated the time and effort that went into creating such a personalized gift of love. Besides, who really needs more baby clothes anyway, right?

I also made these baby hands and feet, but they didn't make the cut for the basket. It was fun to try my new cutters, but I wasn't completely happy with how they turned out, this time. ;^)
Congratulations Rachel and Johnny!
Happy Baptism Lila!
