So, I don't know if I have mentioned this before... but my Craft Rescue Hero is awesome!  And for our anniversary/birthday I got a Silhouette Cameo.  If you don't know about the Cameo, it is like a Cricut on steroids.  It is a die cutting machine that cuts paper, fabric, vinyl, temporary tattoo paper... practically anything!  I have been eyeballing it for months and I was thrilled when one came to the house just for me! 
I think my favorite part is the fonts and images section.  You can cut ANY, yes ANY font on your  computer!  So, I hopped straight onto Pinterest and downloaded fonts for hours.  And then I could cut them all out on my Cameo!  Fabulous!  Also, the images run for 99 cents.  That means if I want a picture of a giraffe, I have a bunch of choices and I get just what I want for less than a buck!  No more crazy expensive cartridges.  My little library is growing as we speak! 
The first project I made on my Silhouette was for my principal.  I am really a slave to my job :(
She wanted an invitation to our Staff Picnic and so I used the sweet powers of my Cameo, combined with my Cricut to make an invitation that I hope tells people to show up.... no guarantees!

The blue plaid background is a paper I had in my stash and I used the ric-rac image that was already in my free image collection.  (The Silhouette comes with 50 or so images in your account already).  This is a font I downloaded and I settled on it because it was bold and easy to read from a distance.  The watermelon slice came from a Cricut Cartridge and I made the seeds with an old fashioned hole punch!  I think it came out super cute- what do you all think?

Check back tomorrow for some scrapbook pages I did last weekend at a retreat with my fabulous Silhouette - thanks again CRH!
