So I received a Michael's gift card for my birthday from my dad and stepmom so I decided to use it to buy a Cuttlebug Machine. It's a die cutting and embossing machine that works with any brand dies. I plan to use it more for the embossing feature to make card backgrounds and textured finishes for my scrapbook pages. As far as the menu plan goes I am not doing so hot. I've already resorted to frozen pizzas and tonight Sloppy Joes. While they were on the menu plan they are not worth photographing. Maybe tomorrow will be more interesting.
