My New Toy... An Award...& A Special RAK!

Good Morning Bloggers!!!
I have alot to share today and this will be post 1 of 2 
so please do come back later when I post my project for The Cutting Cafe.
Ok onto all this fun stuff!!!!!
Look what I got yesterday....
Isn't she beautiful?!?!?
Now the fun can begin....I was playing around last night a bit...had some kinks to work out and
for sure plan to play today!! 
I was having some issues with my images not showing up on my mat...they were there but not that I could see...
Well wouldn't you know with the help of my husband and my 11 year old....that's right my 11 year old they were able to fix it!
I swear to you my son can navigate the computer 100 times better than I could possibly imagine. He told me yesterday that his teacher asked him to help fix a computer issue at school and withing 10 minutes had it up and running....WHAT?? Way to go Casey!!
Next I want to share this beautiful RAK I received from a very dear blogging friend!
Sonia over at Archiving Angel
sent me this beautiful "B" Stand that she made along with such an awesome tea cup card!
I have it proudly displayed on my desk and it holds my Trendy Twine that I have on spools.
It is so perfect and I will for sure treasure this always!
Thanks so much Sonia!
If you have yet to check out her blog....Archiving Angel make sure to hop over.
She has the greatest tips, tricks and tools. Always sharing the newest and coolest in scrapbooking stuff!!
Let her know also that I sent you!!
I know she would love some new followers!!!
Ok lastly I received

  1. I'm getting on early this morning just to see what you made with your new toy. When I saw on FB last night that you had gotten it I thought-she'll be up all night playing w/ that thing. Thank you for including me in your list for the award, you know you're at the top of mine!

  2. So excited for you! You're going to love it!! I know what you mean about kids and computers- I had to have my 10 year old how me how to add and delete photos on Facebook yesterday. LOL!!

  3. How awesome- a cameo----that will be SO MUCH FUN to play with!! I'm jealous! Thanks also for thinking of me for the award- I really appreciate it and will post with pride! :)Amy

  4. How exciting a new CAMEO, also lovely RAK you received, congrats on the versatile blogger award and to all that was passed on too...
    Have a great day Jessica....

  5. congrats on getting a cameo. i got mine not long ago and love, love, love it. i'm still in the learning phase so i'm glad to see that others have gotten the cameo and hopefully will be sharing tips and tricks. can't wait to see what you create using this great machine.

  6. Thank you so much for the Award my friend. 2nd I haven't touched my cameo yet, I am definitely waiting for my 13 year old to help me, LOL! Ain't that the darnest thing, they do now how to work things better than us at times. Enjoy your new Cameo.


  7. Congrats on the new Cameo and the award!!! Both awesome things:)

  8. Oohh how cool, is that the cameo or silhoutette? Not familiar with either I just know they exist LOL can't wait for you to play so I can figure out if getting one is worth the investment. I have so much invested in Cricut stuff right now, not sure I want to add another machine. I'll be watching so you can talk me in to it! LOL

  9. Have fun with your new toy! Thanks so much for the award!

  10. You're too kind!!! Thanks a million! Super hugs.

    Be blessed, Beckie

  11. She is beautiful I am so wanting one now. The SVG cut file I bought 6 months ago is just waiting for the right machine--
    You are an enabler----Love the story about your girls in the following post.

  15. Oh my goodness you are just so sweet Jessica! Thank you so much, I'm honored.
    A cameo..... Congrats, she's a beauty!! I haven't taken the plunge yet because I don't have an 11 year old haha!!! I totally can relate. It took me 3 months to learn my iPhone and my 7 year old just showed me something new yesterday???
    Can't wait to see all the projects, I look forward to it.
    Have a good night!

  16. Congrats on your new "toy"!!:) Isn't crazy how quickly these kids figure out computers/electronics!! I never thought I would see the day that I had to ask my own son for help!! I always thought it was SOOOOO FUNNY when my parents couldn't figure out the VCR etc.!! Last laugh is on me!!:)

  20. Hello Jessica! Thank you so very much for the award & for mentioning me on your blog. I appreciate the plug. I am honored that you would think of me & bestow me the award.
    I will get to sharing it with others soon as I am catching up with blogs & comments. Congrats again on your Cameo. I know you will make the most of it & really bring us some gorgeous creations. Cute how your son helped with your technical woes. I guess we shouldn't be surprised. This generation is so tech savvy.
    All the best my dear friend.
