How I got into Cricut

Erica at My Cricut Craft Room has asked how we got into Cricut. Someone will win the Cricut Circle exclusive cartridge Sophie.

When I first started scrapbooking, I was at a craft store and saw this neat machine set up inside a plexiglass box. It was the first ever Cricut. I just fell in love with it, but I decided right then and there I would never own one because it was so expensive.  years later (not sure how many) I saw an infomercial for the Cricut Expression. Once again, I loved it, but the cost was very high and I knew I would never be able to afford one.
Then, last year, I was totally surprised when my husband gave me one for Christmas!  After spending some time playing with it, and watching me cut things with it, my 8 year old daughter also fell in love with it and she saved her money and bought her own!  We learned this machine together and both of us has developed a love for card making. My daughter has also discovered scrapbooking.

Please share how you got into Cricut. Go to My Cricut Craft Room and share your story!
