Birth Day Gift for Parker

I loved this idea when I saw it on Jones Design Company.  I just HAD to make it for wonderful cousin Meghann, and her hubby Shaun.  Meghann gave birth TODAY!  Parker might be is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen.  I think I am getting over being scared of babies...Jones Design Company had a tutorial to make this monogram art for a baby gift, or a wedding gift.  Here are the materials you will need:

I could not find a 5 by 7 in. frame with a 4 by 6 in. mat.  I looked at JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, and Wal-Mart.  I only could find a mat that would frame the picture to be 3.5 by 5 in..  I bought it anyway, and didn't use it {fail}...I also struggled finding the metal book plate.  It was not in the scrapbooking section at my Hobby Lobby or Michael's.  With me being the problem solver I am, I bought a $2 photo box and ripped it off.  :)

I bought 3 fabrics, and then decided which one I liked most.  I went with the linen one.

I am not going to do a full tutorial, because the one on Jones Company was fabulous.  Here are some pictures of the process.  

P is for Parker!

Birthday!  I did not have a stamp so I just printed the date using the font typewriter condensed.

Final Product!  {i love it}
