Yeah, it needed something. I was going to throw some Mickey ears on there, but decided to play with my new toy instead I bought a Cameo! There was an awesome special on Overstock with a cover, glitter, sticky paper, $35 in download cards, and the machine, of course. It cuts like buttah!

I've been putting it off forever. I got my 'year end' bonus in January and was able to pay for my weekend away in April and then had plenty left over for the Cameo. Finally bit the bullet!

Congrats Jen. I've been thinking about selling my Cricut and cartridges. I could probably get enoug from all of it to cover the cameo. Have you tried to cut anything intricute? I hate cutting some stuff with the cricut as you need to redo it several times to get it perfect.

I just did the train, but I was able to make the shadow on my own after only two tries. I'm hoping to play some more tomorrow. I'd like to try one of the fine lined titles. I do have to say that it cut amazingly. The negative space lifted right off perfectly.

I'm too invested to not have a Cricut, but I may sell my old Expression (which hasn't been updated so if someone has SCAL2, it would work with it). I got the E2 last year and I'm getting used to it.

We may need to talk. Mine is dragging the blade across paper and no matter what I do, I can't make it stop, but I love SCAL so I don't want a new machine.
I, too, am way to invested in Cricut to not have one.

Sandy, that is awful....I agree with the other ladies, you should stand your ground and meet with the teacher & principal....they've got to have some sort of extra help available or have you do it and get her up the 2%....I don't have the patience for home schooling but have a couple of friends who do it!

Jen, the train is so cute! congrats on the Cameo!!!

this is what I made the other day with mine for a friends bday! it also cut flowers with the hair, but wanted it to have a 3-D effect so added the other flowers instead!

It's up for grabs! It works fine, just won't last forever, you know.

On a side note, anyone home schooled their kids? I'm being put in a hard place by the girls school. They already determined that one of the girls will stay in grade 1 while the other 2 will move on to grade 2 ( and be in the same class) in September. This will be the destruction of her self estime. I can't do that to her. how can they determine in February that someone who has 58% will not have a 60% by June.
I considered homeschooling before we switched to Catholic School. I'm not Catholic so I wasn't 100% confortable sending them there but I also know the stuff they are learning know is beyond what I could teach them. It ended up being a good thing with the new school, thankfully.
They tried to pull the same crap with DS11 and keeping him back, but I feel it was the school, not him. He is an honor roll student now, just a little more immature than his classmates.
I think if DD was an only it would be ok keeping her back, but not when she's a triplet, that would just crush her and it would be obvious that she's a triplet kid of she looks like her sisters.

Have they talked to you at all about what she's behind in? Is the 58% in one subject or as a whole? Do they offer remedial classes? They should be offering classes if she's behind. DS11 was in remedial reading (mostly because of his speech issues) and remedial math. He could actually be in regular math but the remedial teacher and I decided he liked being in the smaller class so he would purposely fail to be kept in her class.

It's not just about what you can do for DD, it's about what they are doing to help her. If she's only at 60% by June they will pass her, but how far will she be behind in grade 2? Do they offer a summer program? Have you looked into Sylvan or another tutoring program? Also, the Summer Bridge workbooks are really good, I use those with the kids a lot.

How are the other girls grades? Are they willing to help their sister with the things she is behind on so she can move up?

And as Jennifer and Cassey said. The first year they can only recommend the child stay back, they have to have parental permission. They can push the issue the next year though.

Can you tell I've been through this before?? LOL

As long as it doesn't drag, I'd be happy. I will have to move on eventually, but right now I can't reinvest in a whole new machine. And even when I go with a new company, I still like a lot of the Cricut designs so I'd want a machine kicking around.

PM me with a price.
