My Dad's the Greatest Blog Hop

Welcome to My Dad's the Greatest Blog Hop. If you arrived from Kristy, then you are on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to hop from the beginning head over to Pamela. Today we are honoring our Dads, Grand Fathers, Uncles,  Big Brothers, and Husbands... Who ever made a significant, loving mark in your life. Do you remember your father being so big in your eyes, that he could protect you from anything? He was the one who would barbecue or mow the grass. He would go off to work every day and come home tired and still make time to laugh and play. He didn't mind that every Father's Day, he got a tie or slippers. He was our protector!!

Today we have some wonderful, talented women who would like to show that their Dad is the Greatest!! In case you get lost the hop starts at Pamela ~

We have Blog Candy!!! It’s a fun stamp set from Tim Holtz “Life’s a Journey” to one lucky winner that leaves a comment on every blog.

And now for my project, it's not for my Dad but for my husband who I think is one of the most amazing Dad's I've ever known. Not only is he a super hard working provider, he's an excellent role model for our son, instilling in him a loving bond and strength as well as a sense of pride in his accomplishments. Since my husband has so little down time I created this sign to point out to him where to find his foamies once he's ready to relax, lol. This is my first project made with vinyl, there are a couple of little spots that didn't quite turn out perfect but that's ok, it's shows it's hand made with love. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with it and I know he LOVES it! :)

2 pieces of spare vinyl decking
Assorted colors of permanent vinyl - Vinyl Ease
Beer Mugs and Arrow files: Scraptastical Kreations
Fonts: Ice & Snow, Lobster
