I had the joy of playing with a cricut machine for my very first time this week. WOW! Thanks to my sis-in-law, I was able to begin "Noah's Book of Animals" I suppose it will become "Ellie's Book of Animals" one day too!

Since Noah loves animals so much, I thought it would be fun to use her Kingdom Animal cartridge to make my first die-cuts. Once I got the hang of it, I was creating and printing in no time!

Here are some of the animals I have for the book (please excuse the poor picture quality):

(This one has a dark green RIBBIT that I must have misplaced. :) )There was no sound for Elephant so I just printed out the word ELEPHANT to put below.

I really look forward to playing with the machine again (and, of course, hanging out with my sis-in-law). I can't wait to finish this fun book of animals.
