Grandparent's Day die cut challenge at Cut It Up


  It's time to Cut It Up again and this time we are celebrating "Grandparent's Day."  When my daughters were in elementary school, there was an annual school-wide celebration assembly for Grandparent's Day.  I chose various pictures from those special days and created a mini book.

Here is a peek inside:
 My mom with each of my twin girls.

Mom and Julia; my dad, Kathryn, my m-i-l, and my mom.

Kathryn, me, Julia, and my maternal grandmother.


Once again we have two sponsors each with a prize to be won:
$20 Coupon Code

AND

$15 gift card

I am also following the Decorate to Celebrate blog and their current challenge is:  #82 "Decorations for Grandparents Day or Birthday."  My mini is acting as my mom's birthday card and this mini is filled with pictures of her and her grandchildren!  A perfect fit for this challenge.  (Thank you, Lisa, for encouraging me to enter this challenge!)

Supplies:
die cuts:  SEI luggage tag (yellow tag; cover); Rusty Pickle sentiment tags (white tags on p. 1)
paper:  SEI "Holiday Hoopla"
adhesive:  Xyron
alphabet stamps:  American Crafts

Now let's see how this challenge inspires you...do you know someone who is/is about to become a grandparent you could make a card for? What about a layout of you with your grandparent(s)?  Just remember to include a die cut on your project and link up at Cut It Up and Decorate to Celebrate by September 3rd.

Happy Friday!
