Thanks for all the input ladies!! I am definitely saving my pennies up for a Cameo, and cannot wait to get one. I've heard from several people that it's definitely the way to go! I was also pleasantly surprised that you can download the regular software for free which I have done, now I can play around with it and get used to it before I actually get my machine. Pretty neat!
Thanks again, I love seeing the great feedback and ideas, it helps so much!
