A Baptism Mini Album

A few years ago I made a baptism mini album for my oldest son. At the same time I purchased his name album I bought one for my younger son knowing his baptism day would be along before we knew it.

Well recently I created the mini album for my youngest son. It was a gift for his baptism, but an album like this would be appropriate for any time.

The first thing I did was paint the front of each page with a bright color. He has such a bright, fun personality I wanted to mimic that on the album.

For each letter I came up with a word that described Keaton. Some letters were harder than others, and you can bet I used Google to help! I also made sure that each word was positive and affirming (even though I could have chosen a few other words that certainly describe him at times. Ha!).

I used letter stickers to write out the words and a Sharpie to add my journaling. Then I tried to find photos that matched the sentiment. In this case I made a collage of expressive photos. Boy, do I love this kid!

Part of the fun was scrolling through my pictures to find ones that represented each word I had chosen. Him writing a prayer to say over the meal prior to his grandpa’s funeral was definitely a pic I wanted to include!

I know it’s hard to read, but this one says ‘thoughtful’. He is a kid that is always thinking of others and is just as likely to ask me how my day was as I am to ask him!

With his brother I was on top of things and had the album done before he was baptized. But my youngest was baptized the week before we headed to a church camp I help direct. And right after camp my father got sick. So it took me awhile to complete this album. The bonus is that I was able to include a photo from the actual day he was baptized into the album. I love that he has this momento to remember his big day!
