Celebrate the Occasion: Challenge #29 - Grandparents Day

Are you ready to Celebrate the Occasion?  I am!  Challenge #29 is to create a project celebrating Grandparents Day.

We just returned from a great visit with my parents over the long Labor Day weekend.  My son had a fabulous time playing with his Papaw and GG.  If he had a way to get in a pedal car and make the seven-hour drive himself, he would!


Card Details:
  • Card Base - Recollections (A6)
  • Papers - stripes by My Mind's Eye: Magnolia; cardstocks by Bazzil Basics
  • Cricut Cuts - boy/dog in car from Nate's ABCs, page 59
  • Other - inking with Colorbox petal point ink pads; handwritten sentiment; cut on pop dots; twine from my mom's stash

Do you have a special grandparent in your life?  If so, join us in making a project this week at Celebrate the Occasion.  Happy crafting!

  6. Cute! I love the sentiment! My kids have to endure a 9 - 10 hour drive to see their Grandparents too, so that time with them is super special. You summed the whole thing up in this card. Awesome. :)
