Good Monday morning to you all!  Ah, May and June are busy months for everyone, what with Mother's Day, end of school, graduations, Memorial Day, and Father's Day.  To top it off, at my house we have 3 birthdays and our wedding anniversary!  Whew!  To tell you truth, I almost think it's busier than December.

Today I have a Father's Day project to share with you, and as SVG Cuts is our sponsor again, I went on a lovely romp through their store again.  I wanted to do something a little different, and I found just the thing--it's in the Autumn section and the file is Leaves Are Falling.  It's a decor piece that looks like a ribbon board.  It went together beautifully, and I had SO much fun decorating it!  It measures 9 x 9".

This is a picture of my hubby, and he really is an awesome dad!  I knew I wanted to use this DP, called Retro Fresh by SU, so I took a picture of him in one of his orange shirts.  He has several since he looks good in it and orange just happens to be my favorite color LOL!  SVG Cuts has really thought of everything with this file--the holes for the brads are in the file, and everything matches up.  Putting it together was effortless.  Mary's assembly videos are one reason I love this company so much--they really help!

Here is a pic of the back--you can see a little of how it goes together and Mary has thoughtfully provided a hole in the back to hang it on a wall.

Here's a close-up of the title.  It comes from a Cricut Craft Room Exclusive called Father's Day Daddy, which has several cute designs.  CS is SU and colors are Tangerine Tango, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, and Close to Cocoa (retired).  I popped the central banner up on foam tape.

I continued with the arrow theme using these arrows from CTMH Artbooking cartridge.  I love that cartridge!  Hemp is from SU, button is from PTI.

The dots are CTMH's Aqua Dots.  Brads are from Michaels.

I love how this project came out!  I hope you do too.  Stop by SVG Cuts and take a look around their store.  Their files work with most cutting machines including the new Cricut Explore, though not with any older Cricut machines, sadly.  

And please play along with us this week at FCCB--just make a project all about Dad, or a masculine project, and link it up to FCCB.  Remember to include at least ONE Cricut cut on your project.

Thanks for dropping by today, and have a wonderful Father's Day!
