Now I can't wait to see Ella's face when she hears my "Merry Christmas, Ella!" and "I love you, Ella, from Gramma" message. I'm being very brave to post myself singing "Away in a Manger" -- and yep, I got all that in the 30 second time limit!
Ella knows, even at just 18 months, that we're celebrating Jesus' birthday. She sings her favorite Jesus songs and hugs and kisses her Little People Nativity Jesus figure so sweetly. I always want her to know Jesus' love for her, what He has done for her from the manger to the cross, and that He is always with her.
I used my favorite Evensong papers in the pretty muted shades and floral patterns. The Liquid Glass glued the small paper sections to the recorder box. Notice that I turned the "box" upside down so that the Baby Jesus element would appear on the bottom & the "on button" would be at the top left.
I cut Baby Jesus in the manger from a Christmas card, adhered the picture to a dimensional flower shape covered with green Evensong, then pop-dotted that element right over the speaker holes.
The extra Liquid Glass dots on the flowers, Baby Jesus, and the lamb added sparkle. The ribbons are from the CTMH Holiday Collection.
(Star and gift box dimensional elements are from Marcella by K Company.)
