My First Project With My New Baby Girl!

Well after a lot of hymning and hawing, I finally did it! Yes I went out and purchased myself a new toy to play with. Let me tell you a bit about myself.....I am not good at waiting for anything and I sure in the heck didn't want to pay the  prices of shipping , taxes, GST, duty, and  then on top of it wait  4 to 6 weeks to receive it, so I did a bit of research and found a place in Edmonton that carried them. So off hubby and I went to pick up my new Silhouette Cameo on Monday. I have been watching a lot of videos, and playing around a bit  ever since!
 OMG!
There is so much to learn, my brain is working double time!
I ask myself, am I to old to learn this darn thing?
But 
YEA! FOR ME! I did it!
My first Card and 3D project with my new toy.
 This weeks build a project over on the Creative Kuts facebook fan page was this adorable watering can. Which I filled with Jelly Beans for one of the Grand Kids.
 and here is my first card. I purchased the image for 99 cents over at the  Silhouette Store.
I can not believe how well this machine cuts such fine little details. It is a bit louder then my Cricut but oh my what a lovely sweet  addition to my Scrap Room! So that is all for today, I am off to watch another video or two  and see what else I can learn today.
I am also going to enter these in this weeks challenge over at Getting Cricky with K. Andrews Simply Sunday Challenge -Easter Blessing
My Craft Spot Challenge- Easter
Paper Craft Star- anything goes.
Creative Cutter Room- Bunny or Easter

Yeah congrats on the new cameo. Love what you've made. I feel the same way if I'm too old to learn new things.

I broke down and ordered mine week before last. Got it last week. I live in the states and nobody near me carried any of it..(As an Imagine owner they have never carried that either) Sigh I'm on the east coast what is up with that??? Enjoy and embrace the new learning curve as I have.

Congratulations on your new toy! I've been hearing that people have been using a Silhouette - but really have no clue what it is. Perhaps I should check it out (or maybe I shouldn't as I'll likely want one too!!)
Your projects are fabulous! I especially like the darling card you've made. It's lovely!
Thanks so much for playing along with us at My Craft Spot!
