Father's Day link up party

This morning while checking out some of the blogs I follow I found something really fun over at Scrapin with my cricut.  They are hosting a Father's day link up party!  The basic idea is that they are hosting links to blogs with great Father's day projects!  I love the idea because you can find a lot of great ideas all in one place.  I am going to post a link to my Father's day card that I posted earlier in the week.  Be sure to hop over the Scrappin with my cricut to check out all the wonderful projects!

A treat for all of you, and a sneak peak of our day

Ok ladies.  I have a sneak peak of what's to come at our crop day.  I recently purchased a YUDU machine, and I have been working hard to get it just right.  My first project has been to work with the logo I previously showed all of you (car decal).  I plan on bringing my personal YUDU and prepared screen for all of you to use.  Please bring one item to YUDU.  If you would like to try it yourself you are welcome to do so, or I will be happy to help you make a yudu'd item.  If you have any questions please let me know.  I will also be sending an email next week with the same info for those who don't read here.

Car Decal

As several of you expressed interest in the Chicago Logo Car Decal, I have listed the item on ETSY.  This should take you right there  If you have any questions let me know.  I can certainly make other sizes or colors.  Right now I only have white and silver outdoor vinyl on hand, but I can order more if there is enough interest.

My First Car Decal

I have been hard at work this week creating a logo that will be specific to our Chicago Area Circle Group.  Some of you might have noticed that I posted the logo on our facebook group, but here it is as a logo on the back of my car.  There are details on how I created the decal on my blog, but I wanted to post it here as well.

Great News

I just spoke with Michael Wigton from PC and we are officially endorsed by PC for this event.  As it is a small event that doesn't mean a whole lot, but it is always good to know that we have their support.  More details to come as they become available.
