Ok . . . who wants to hear the BIGGEST and BESTEST NEWS EVER ?!?!?!? Some of you may already know this, but I finally have some pictures to prove it. :) At the end of 2011, for a few months, Cricut was doing their 5th Anniversary Sweepstakes. When you bought certain cartridges, you could take the Rewards Coupon inside and go to the Sweepstakes website and enter that code. Some could win instant prizes like cartridges or Cricut.com credit, etc. But for every "non-winning" coupon, you were entered into the Grand Prize Sweepstakes Drawing ~ where the Grand Prizes were either 1) A Cricut Cruise, 2) A Craft Room Makeover or 3) 100 Cricut Cartridges.
Well guess what ? I WON 100 CRICUT CARTRIDGES !!!!!!!
And they were finally delivered this week! Here are the pictures to prove it:
It took 3 whole boxes to hold them all! The Fed-Ex guy thought I was crazy when he saw my reaction. LOL
Here is the first and the biggest box. There are 2 layers of cartridges in there!!!
Here is the second box . . . also with 2 layers of cartridges in there!!!
And here is the third and final box. But wait . . . let's take them all out . . .
That's what 100 Cricut Cartridges looks like baby!!!
And this is what the SUPER HAPPY OWNER OF 100 CRICUT CARTRIDGES looks like!!! My husband was taking these photos and he took this one 3 different times because he wanted to make sure my whole shirt was showing. This is his favorite scrapbooking shirt of mine . . . LOL!
- 3 total boxes ~ delivered by the fabulous FedEx guy
