Cameo Convert!

Happy Thursday! Yesterday was a very special day. It was Baxter Bear's birthday. My Gremlin monkey boy is 6 years old (or so we think--he was an adoption like the others). The Giant is out of town so we will be celebrating with a special walk (just Bax and us) and a trip to River Dog Bakery ( on Saturday. Happy birthday Bax!

Over the past weekend, I was busy finishing the final purges of my scraproom for Scrappin' in the City's (my fave local scrapbooking store) yard sale. It felt so good to remove items that have been taking up space that I never got around to using. The pre-sale is tonight and the sale runs from Fri.-Sat. I am really hoping my stuff sells so I can put the proceeds towards a Silhouette Cameo.

I was a Cricut gal before but I recently sold my Expression and all of my cartridges/accessories on EBay. After seeing what the Cameo can do, it is safe to say that I am a convert! The cuts that this machine can make are incredible! One of the girls at "The City" (the local scrapbooking store) is working on a custom job for a customer who has traveled the world. She is making title pages that show the shape each country the client has visited. The Cameo is having no problems cutting out the shapes of countries that have the most of intricate cuts (think of the Phillipines). I was so impressed!

Are you a Cricut follower or a Cameo fan? What do you use for your die-cutting needs?

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy!
