Beep for the Birthday Boy

Hello Crafty Friends,

Just got back from college orientation last night after spending two days with my son in Jacksonville.  He is getting ready for his first semester and will be leaving next weekend. I am not turning his room into my  craft room yet, but one day. I want to make sure he enjoys college and actually does the necessary studying.

Exploring Cricut has a challenge for Father's Day that you can still enter, and beginning this Monday there will be a new challenge that you will not want to miss.
Here is my Design Team project for Exploring Cricut...
