New Toy!!!

So, As you know, I do a lot of scrapbooking.  Card Making is something new to me,and I do love doing it, but my first love is to the pictures.  So, for my birthday, my husband surprised me beyond my wildest dreams when he got me my new toy

Introducing my new Cricut Explore Air 2!

I was hesitant to want one of the newest machines that Cricut was coming out with.  Mainly that you always need to have an internet connection to even use this.  And, as I just found out, unless I'm not doing it right, you can ONLY use cartridges that you have linked to your account, you cannot use a cartridge that is not linked to your account.  I find this strange, because it's a physical cartridge, you should be able to use it, but that's another story.  This was found out because I'm having trouble linking one of my newest cartridges because it says it's already linked but it was new when I got it.  

BUT, the best part about this pretty mint green machine, is that I can cut images from my own computer as well as my system fonts.  Check out what I've cut out so far that I don't have cartridges for!

My son is on the Orioles this season.

This is only my first time playing with the new features, so I cannot wait to try more!
I'll be sure to post once I do!
And, I'm working on my Disney World album.  Here's my latest page, still a work in progress (WIP) but it's coming along nicely!
(and probably some Say Cheese elements in there as well)
