Birthday Gift for Oma

We were very lucky this year to get to celebrate Oma's birthday with her. 
Usually we don't get to see my mom on her birthday because we live so far away and January is an odd time to travel. Plus we usually would have just gotten back from somewhere over Christmas, sometimes from visiting my parents. 
But this year my beautiful daughter was born in January and since Oma HAD to come meet her (obvi!!), it meant we got to share in celebrating her January birthday too! 

I knew we wanted to have something homemade for her birthday, and that we wanted the gift to represent her first grand daughter too. 
I came up with the idea to make a scrapbook page and frame it for her with pictures of Ellie from her visit. I made the page ahead of time, but we had to be sneaky and go print pictures to add while Oma was here, but without Oma knowing! 
Then, I also wanted to frame some little Ellie footprints. We stamped them so that they looked like hearts. My husband made both the frames in his garage before Oma arrived for her visit and we had everything ready to go when her birthday rolled around. 

The footprints were done when she was just 5 days old! 
We anticipated needing a few sessions to get them all done, but Ellie just let us stamp while she was wide awake! 
We used a water soluble paint to that it was safe for her little toes and washed off easily. 

Here were our finished products up close: 

This is one proud grand parent :) 

Happy [belated] birthday to the very bestest mama and Oma ever! 
We love you VERY much!!!
