Pinterest Challenge #3

Apparently I am getting on track with my pinterest challenge pins and to-do's. I did finish my number one pin already, and I am just allowing the next item to dry! I am having trouble on getting the number 3 pin done, I need a special flour and I can't find it anywhere. I hope I will before April 2nd. lol

Anyway, I am here to talk about the 3rd week project of this challenge. It was an activity to do with my daughter for Father's day which will be tomorrow. 

The pin from the above image was this one:
but I wasn't really sure if it was what I really wanted to do with G. I kept pinning other activities and eventually, I picked one. The one I thought to be closer to what I had in mind. Which turned out to be this:

I just loved this idea and its possibilities. 

What we got though, was this:

I let her free paint in a light blue piece of paper - just so you know, if you're wondering, she's 20 months old. It was an adventure to trace her hand's shape as she didn't want to lay it quietly for more than two seconds. Trying to have her hand just like on the original imagine/pin was simply impossible. So what I did, was try and trace it in any other piece of paper, and then trasfer that drawing to the light blue paper. Then cut it, glued to a previously covered card box paper, add their pictures to each hand, and write "Love you daddy!" in the middle of the heart. 
I then had her signing her name by my hand... she didn't want to so trying to do it as quick as possible, I misspelled my own child's name. There's the "e" in Gabriela missing =/ 
To finish off our work, I add two eyelets on top and a ribbon, so it can hand anywhere daddy wants too. In the last picture there's the photo frame/craft and the cell phone bag from this challenge previous post. Both will be daddy's surprise tomorrow morning. =) 

did you miss it?
