My dad passed away 7 years ago this coming July.  I am the only girl and was his favorite!!!  I miss him dearly especially his wisdom and sense of humor.  Here is my layout from 2007:
  My project today was made for my husband who is an amazing father to our three boys!  Here is a picture of him and tanner (the little blonde in the red shirt in the picture above too) after we won a baseball tournament 2 weeks ago:

My project was inspired by this:
I found this pin on Pinterest and really liked it.  I found a font on my computer that I liked (pharmacy) and got my Cameo fired up!! 
This is what I designed.  I did not have a float frame, so I used an 8x8 Canvas.  I sized my design to fit within 8x8 and cut it out in orange vinyl.  Orange is Mike's favorite color.  He is a kidney cancer survivor and orange is the ribbon color for kidney cancer.
He also loves bright blue, so I painted the edges of the canvas bright blue.
Here is a close up of the painted edges.
I already gave Mike his other Father's Day gift - he asked for a FitBit bracelet to track his fitness level.  Ever since his kidney surgery last July, he has dropped 30 pounds, eats better and works out as often as his busy schedule allows.  We are hoping to have many more Father's Day celebrations with him!

Up next is JESSICA!
Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way:

Thanks so much for joining us! Happy Father's Day to all the Men in our lives!!
