Decorate To Celebrate - Grandparents Day!

Happy Wednesday!!!

Hope you are all surviving the week!
I am still counting down til next Tuesday,
when my son starts Kindergarten - Can. Not. Wait!!!

But until then we have the all important day celebrating

And that's just what we are doing over at Decorate To Celebrate!
We want to see how you honor the grandparents in your life!

To be honest, I would not be able to be a mom
without the help of my parents and my MIL!

So today's project is how I am going to thank my
Mom and Dad!
They have 7 grand kids so I made this so they could
put a picture of each of them on here.
(Check back on Friday for how I will thank my MIL)

This is 100% Pinterest inspired too!
I have seen this type of board and pinned it to my Crafty Crafts
but haven't gotten around to completing it until now!

I really like how this turned out.

I started with an MDF board my husband cut and routed.

Then I painted it brown with some acrylic paint.
I used Mod Podge to adhere my cardstock
which all came from Close To My Heart.

The "grandkids" I cut from Lyrical Letters
out of turquoise cardstock (not vinyl)
and adhered them with my Zig 2 Way Pen.
I then put a top coat of Mod Podge over the whole thing.

The clothes pins were glued with Scotch Quick Dry
and the cardstock on the top of them was adhered with Mod Podge.

It really was an easy project to put together!

Here is what it will look like with some pics...

I hope you will join us over at Decorate To Celebrate!
And please remember that you can always
enter ways you celebrate Birthdays too!
(Just please no cards or layouts)
