I Won a Silhouette!

This SPRING banner is the FIRST completed project with my new Silhouette Portrait cutting machine.

Thanks to Ginger at Ginger Snap Crafts for hosting this awesome giveaway and Silhouette for the truly fun cutting machine that I will spend loads of time using! Imagine my surprise when I found out I won! It was like Christmas morning and I was a 5 year old again!!
It is easy to learn to use with a bit of a learning curve. I think it was helpful that I have a graphic design background so I have caught on pretty fast. 
My mind is just reeling with projects to create including items for my son's upcoming wedding. This banner taught me how to create cuts that save on paper and you just can't imagine how fast this thing cuts!
I still have a smile on my face from my win! I love creating with this Silhouette machine!!!
