just a little note to say hi. Halloween is here and I can't believe it!! Where is the time going??? It's almost christmas. Speaking of Christmas, those of you hoping for a silhouette for christmas should tell santaabout the site They are selling the silhouette in an infomercial and you really get a lot of great stuff. I won't even try to compete. This is all because quickutz sold the silhouette and now the new owners are trying to market this in their own special way. Anyways anyone looking for this product... get it now as I heard that some of the bonuses may change.
Good luck.
