IT'S HERE!!!!!!!!!

I cannot believe it got here so quickly.  It was a pleasant surprise waiting for me this morning when I went for a morning walk.  I cannot believe it sat on my front porch all night and I didn't even know it was there.  I am so happy!  So I finished my walk (I don't know how) and I took my Big Bug inside.  As I was looking over the packaging I noticed it was labeled "Expression2- AnniversaryEdition".  I took a step back and said, "I know this must be a mistake".  The Customer Rep. told me I probably would not get another Anniversary Edition.  So I ripped open the box and guess what?
I got another Anniversary Edition!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!!! Provocraft.  My confidence in your standing behind your products is restored.  Did you happen to read my post?  No, I know you didn't.  But thank you again!  My new Expression2- Anniversary Edition is resting snugly in it's new place(right next to Gypsy Girl)

And here's the first cut:  It from the Artiste (Close to my Heart) cartridge

Packing up my Cricut E2

My Cricut Expression2 developed a problem recently and I am having to pack it up and send it packing.  I  had it a year and some and I loved creating with it.  However, the usb port broke not allowing me to connect it to my computer for updates or use it with my Gypsy.  So away I had to send it for a replacement.  What bothered me was that it is the Anniversary Edition with 4 cartridges preloaded onto it. But as the customer  service rep ( Tanja-she was awesome with helping me)  explained I still have those carts on my Gypsy and on my Cricut classroom account so that made me feel a little better.  But there was something about having those carts right on the E2 that just made me kinda sad.  I'll have a brand new E2 soon and I can pair my Gypsy again with it.  So as I await it's arrival I'll be cutting with my first Expression which is my go-to machine.  Bye, Bye E2 Anniversary Edition.

Too Cute Layout

It was time for me to update my blog so here is a layout I created using my Silhouette Cameo.  I love this machine.  It is rating up there right along with my Cricut(s) or has it outrated them? Hmmm. I love the ease at which The SC cuts out intricate designs and also the ease of purchasing only the designs you want.  Over the top of the pic, is a print and cut design and the SC does that using your own printer.  I love, love, love it.  So stay-tuned for some more projects using this awesome machine.
