I love you

Hi everyone, it's almost Father's day and I have a very special one in my life.
The father of my children he is a devoted dad and they love him dearly, since I don't think he will be taking a peek at my blog anytime soon I am sharing what I prepared for him!
I have combined the challenge at CCCB
with the palette 244 at Color Combos Galore and letsgettrendy handmade embellishments challenge.
The in the navy palette worked so well with what I wanted

I started recycling a wooden crate, I purchased some italian olive oil and saved the crate
it is roomy enough for me to put a lot of goodies inside!

I then measured and cut this nautical inspired paper by Fancy Pants, so masculine!

and then I used a quatrefoil stencil for the acrylic cover, that way
 it won't be so easy for him to peek at his gift ;)

close up of the tag I made for him! I combined several lines, Crate Paper base tag layered a circle by Webster's, over a Chevron scallop by MME a top a Spellbinders anchor die cut.  The sentiment is an xacto cut from a Webster;s pages and the "striped ribbon" is a piece of another CP line.
I just love the texture of the back
and here's a photo of him with our DD on a modeling photo shoot for Father's day


Happy Father's Day with your loved ones this weekend!!!
Hugs,
Milagros
