Quilling Project 7: For a SHONA baby!

I made this special photo-frame/layout for one of the most adorable baby boy I have ever met. He is the sweetest answer to my very close friend's uncountable prayers. She endured lot of pain, heartache and agony during past couple years because of some misfortunes but her patience was rewarded with such a beautiful blessing, her baby boy!!!

This is what I had made as a gift for the new Mom when I was going to meet her baby boy for the first time. I wanted to remind her that God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and a lot of faith. But it's always "WORTH THE WAIT". I chose all the elements related to her newly born baby and to welcome her in the realm of motherhood.

The picture I chose to use in this photo-frame/layout was the first picture she had sent to me of her boy. He is just a couple of hours old in this picture. Although he is already three months old when I first met him a few days ago, but judging by comparison of this first pic of his and our first tête-à-tête', he is quickly growing up to be a handsome boy! Mashallah! He is as cute as a button, so I have used buttons in my creation to signify this! I have used bunting to signify the celebration of my friend's first step into motherhood. Two little hearts signify the love and affection of the little baby's mom and dad. And of course, there are a lot of baby related items like pram, bib, pacifier, feeding bottle, rattler, nappy pin and his two little, tiny feet!!!!

Here is a close-up of some elements. Little white patches that you see in the picture below is still-wet glue which had later vanished when it dried.

I added a little stand at the back so that this photo-frame/layout could stand on it's own.

My friend and her hubby were so thrilled to receive this gift! May Allah always shower his choicest blessing on them and may the baby and parents be always happy and healthy! Ameen.
