My Checkered Past

Some of my best memories of hanging out at my grandparents' house on hot summer days are founded in some great games of checkers with my grandfather. So when the new Chestnut Theme challenge at Gingersnap Creations focused on Fun & Games, I thought immediately of this old favorite.

I have never made a checker board before but I thought it might be a great tradition to start with my own daughter. My sweet 9-year-old was a great help in coming up with colors, picking the themes and even doing some of the painting. We look forward to using our checker board for many years.

If you would like to see how I made this board, visit my tutorial at Gingersnap Creations!
