Bad Grandad!!

The weekend is here!!!

My LO today has been inspired by the lovely Olivia.
Olivia is a sweet lady who I've known at Cocoa Daisy for a few years now.
Olivia has been receiving the monthly kits from the start, so I thought seeing as we are celebrating 5 years of Cocoa Daisy this month it would be fun to scraplift one of Olivia's LO'S as one of our September challenges.

Here is my page and you can see Olivia's LO here.

Olivia likes to tell a story when scrapbooking so this challenge at Cocoa Daisy right now is not only to scraplift Olivia's LO but to tell a story too.
I chose the story about my Dad.
He's so bad at times.
Funny as he was ultra strict as a Dad.
But he gets the kids to do stuff they wouldn't usually be allowed to do.
Such as when I was trying to take this photo. Instead of saying 'cheese' he kept saying 'ship' but making it not quite sound like that and was trying to get the kids to say it too, but they were nervous about joining in.
Told you he's bad.

I used an older CD kit from the summer.
And stuck some book pages on to the bazzill first and spread some moulding paste over befores misting.
If you want to play along, the challenge runs until 30th Sept and the prize is a crafters workshop template. You can see the challenge here.

After a very manic week I'm playing catch up today.
Washing, scrapping, working and I want to start a paper mache project this afternoon with the kids. A little idea I have had : )

See you soon xxx
