A while back we purchased the Stations of the Cross Grotto Kit from Illuminated Ink. This is a beautiful way to display the 14 Stations Our Lord went through on his Via Dolorosa. This kit requires many steps and much allowance for glue to dry. A lot of straight edge cutting is needed too. We usually use our cutter similar to this straight edge cutter to get as close to straight as we can. We were going steady “until” we left the 14 stations on the breakfast bar over night to complete the cutting of the 3-D pictures the following day, and water hit the stations…. It could have happened to anyone I told my son. I quickly called the company and asked for help. They were so wonderful to work with and hopefully in the next few days, we’ll fix the artwork, and glue the rocks. I’ll be able to post the completed project that will go on our mantel. Note to all who make this: Please keep the beautiful artwork sheets away from water.

We were also able to print our a set of Holy Cards from Catholic Artworks, Teacher’s Helper to color , cut and laminate. We also plan to read aloud as recommended in our Catholic Mosaic, Lenten book title, “The Story of the Cross” that is full of beautiful artwork.
