I was super late in jumping on the Silhouette band wagon. I absolutely admired everyone's work with it, but I tend to think a little bit like my dad and have a hard time spending money on things that aren't really necessary. Finally though, I caved last Thanksgiving on a Portrait because the Black Friday price was AMAZING. *note: I did not get the Cameo, thinking like my dad there too.
Absolutely a purchase without any regrets and I used it to create the background for this layout:
