not glued down yet but wanna see what I made?

I'm not gluing it down cuz I'm using these for another page.....just wanted to show you something......................







YAY!! I only got a bog-standard one cuz I had no idea the middle of the road one was $400!!! LOL! So we got the original one for $ doesn't do all the same sizes but I'm fine with that. The best part was, Wayne sat there and looked through it all with me for ages and we kept cutting different stuff out together and trying different things out. that made it even more fun Biggrin It of course only came with "George and basic shapes" but Wayne said if he can have the same amount of money for something he wants ($300 or so total) then I can get a cartridge from michael's today too ! YAHOO! So we're off there soon Smile We don't have this to spare all the time by any means but we got lucky in that we are getting our electrical deposit back in a couple days ($300) and we are way ahead on Christmas shopping due to finding some AMAZING yahoo!!! Biggrin And Wayne knows me VERY well too cuz while we were paying he goes "I know...I'm gonna have to take a pic of you hugging the machine so you can scrap that too right?" LMAO

oh! And before I go, I made this card for one of my best friends the other day but forgot to post it. Sarah gave me that background paper...I am SO in love with it. I made sure to keep most of it for a page I can keep. lol Thanks hunnie!:D

i can't believe him! When we went to Michael's to buy ONE, they were on sale for $59 (down from the highest at $119)...I said "whoa half price! Awesome! Now we can put the extra towards something else!" He goes "or you could just by two!...actually, if you want, you can take another $60 out of the money I was gonna have and buy 3!" LOL! I said no way and was trying to figure out which to get (one I could use for my own layouts and cards as well as for the daycare)...he liked the ones I liked and then took two out of my hands and went for the checkout saying "bring one up yourself too." Biggrin I really didnt want him spending his own money but he says he should have to pitch in since it's for the daycare too...which is sorta true I guess Wink LOL
So I got "Stretch Your Imagination", "A Child's Year" (which is the main one I wanted), and "My Community"....LOVE them!! Off to play with them now! :D:yahoo:

ETA I know $120 each is rediculously expensive and I can get them a lot cheaper on sale lol. Even $60's a little high but I had to have a new one today. lol

That's awesome Karen! I'm excited for you. I DO NOT pay full price for carts. You can get 2 for the price of one or less on custom crops, oh my crafts, or ebay.
