Checkers Anybody?

I was working on fun and games for all the nieces and nephews to play on Christmas day and remembered an older post here. Working in a Christmas theme I made the tic tac board...but wanted something else as there are going to be 10 young kids ranging from age 3 to 15 and a few older. I came up with this fun checker board using the snowman from Magical Ball and the penguin from Winter Fun. I took it over to show Melissa and we played a game. She skunked me...I better work on my checker skill before the kids arrive. I started with a 10" x 10" sheet of paper and added 1 1/4" squares (cut on the Cricut) till my board was complete...32 squares to make 64 checks. I used Cosmo Cricket paper...Breezy Freezy from the Jolly By Golly line. I added a a sheet of blue cardstock 11 x 11" and finally a sheet of white cardstock 12" x 12". I cut shapes using my Cricut and layerd them to make the checkers then added my stamped images. This was a very easy easy project.
Don't forget to comment and let us know if you get a chance to make one yourself. Thanks for stopping by and have a great holiday.
