I've lurked here from time to time and everytime I do i get excited to see your projects. I actually don't do any scrapbooking due to work, school and kids but it's def. something i would like to get into. Im really thinking of getting the cricut (ever since i saw the infomercial, thank goodness i didnt get it then) but which one do i get? The xpression or the personal? Its funny because its a smaller version of my husband's machine (he owns a sign business) which cuts vinyl and i know the xp cuts vinyl as well. I also own my own business and I think the cricut would come in handy for making labels and tags. Also with dd#1, im sure she'll be wanting to use it for future school projects etc. I've also seen the cuttlebug, scizzix etc...but cant quite make up my mind. I just lost out on an xp w/accessories cuz i wasn't sure. Well thanks for letting me ramble. Oh and I'm part of the sept'06 bb.
