my new favorite toy...

I braved the 3am Black Friday crowds to go shopping at WalMart for a Cricut expression, I've wanted one for a while! I bought the slice but never had much luck with it so it's in a corner gathering dust. I was hesitant to try another die cut machine, but I'm glad I took the plunge!

My first project with the Cricut was a friend's baby shower invitations. I used a program on my Mac to draw various colored circles on 5x7 sheet of white paper, then just added a text box with the invite info. Finally I used the New Arrival cartridge to cut out the little lady and purse. This is a first mock up so I may change later but not bad for a first time!

Supplies: New Arrival Cartridge, Shimmer Orange Bazzill, PTI
