Silhouette Crazy


OK - So guess what????? I got a Silhouette for Christmas from the man of my dreams!!!! No. Not Santa. But Santa's helper, my husband, George. And of course, Miss Sydney Woo must have had something to do with picking it out. Check out http://www.silhouetteamerica.com/ to see what I am talking about. My friend and neighbour, Angela, told me about the Silhouette, and I was absolutely horrified that there was a crafting tool out there that I didn't have! Say it wasn't so!



Good thing it was close to Christmas and even better thing that I had been a very good girl. So, I sent e-mails, and I dropped hints, and I whined, and I did all of the things that I normally do when there is something that I really, really, must have. I hoped and hoped that the big parcel under the tree was what I had hoped for and it was! I squealed and I hugged and I kissed! And now it is play time ladies and gentlemen.



However, at first I was afraid, I was petrified. Kept thinking I could never use this new and special tool. So I called up Scrapbook Central (http://www.scrapbookcentral.ca/) and signed up for a 6-week course, which I started yesterday. And voila! I am on my way to Silhouette obsession after just one class!



So stay tuned for projects as I start to post some new creations. I am posting a picture of this wonderful machine so that those of you who have never seen one, can have a look.



Wishing everyone a wonderful and creative day!
