Special layout of my Dad and Nana! WOC DT project

Hello everyone!

I really had an emotional time creating this months challenge for Wild Orchid Crafts. For September, we were challenged to make an 8x8 LO however we wanted using WOC products. Once I saw this pic of my dad and his mom, I knew this would be my project!

I recorded a video 4 times and had an emotional moment throughout all of them, so, I kept the original and posted that video. I'll post it below.

Thanks for stopping in to take a peek. Supply list with links to the product will also be at the end of this post.

This project is one that is so very close to my heart. My dad just had his 81st Birthday earlier this month and I wanted to have this done by then, but just couldn't, but I am so glad that I will be able to give it to him now, I hope he likes it:)

Love you Dad!!
