Well, Merry Christmas to me!!!

This morning my doorbell rang as I was downstairs in my craft area finishing up a card. I thought to myself, who could be ringing my doorbell at this time of day? When I went to answer it, this is what I found on my front step:

I thought it might be a package from one of my kids, but when I looked a little closer at the address label, I could see it was not from them.
Yup, that's right. It was from Silhouette!!

On November 30, I found out that I had been selected to win a Silhouette Cameo on Linda Kaiser's blog, the Paper Boutique. I was over-the-moon excited to win such a fantastic giveaway. THANK YOU, LINDA AND SILHOUETTE!

Linda said it would take about three weeks to arrive, so I was not expecting it to arrive today.

I was excited to open the box.

I took out all the components that came with the machine. I have yet to download the software or plug it in. All in due time... First, I want to study the manual, watch some YouTube videos and maybe do a little research on line for advice for Cameo beginners. I wish there was a book called Silhouette Cameo for Dummies! That's me! A Silhouette Dummy!

If you own and/or know anything about successfully using a Silhouette Cameo, please leave me a comment with your best advice. I'm a little apprehensive, but also anxious to get started.

Once again, I just want to say a BIG, HUGE THANK YOU to LINDA AND SILHOUETTE! This is already a fantastic Christmas for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day. I know I've got a big grin on my face as I write this post.
