RealityDiva - nice work I wish I would have started scrapping when I was younger.
Nlmcp: A cricut is an electronic cutting system. I swore up and down I wouldn't get one, but once Michael's came down so low, I had to. They are coming out with another model (of course!), but I don't need the new functions - the smaller one is perfect for me. Their site says $299, but you can always get it cheaper than that. The new one is $500! ack!

So far I have the alphalicious font cartridge and the George/Basic Shapes cartridge that came with it. I'd like to get Base Camp next. I bought my Alphalicious from ebay for $50 shipped.
