Hello, Big Bite!

Look what arrived yesterday from HSN. The Big Bite, also known as the Crop-A-Dile II is here!


I'm looking forward to trying it out later today or tomorrow. LOVE all the eyelets and rivets that came with it!

This morning is a little busy with both of my daughters participating in musical pre-contests for singing (my oldest), and playing an ensemble piece (both girls). The actual contest is February 9th. My oldest plays the flute, and my youngest plays the french horn. Their ensemble pieces are played with a friend that plays the same instrument. They've been practicing quite a bit, so this pre-contest today should go very well!

I have some goodies and a scrapbook page to show you. I need to get some photos taken. Thanks for stopping by!

I still can't believe they brought this out just after I bought the old one. Doh! Have fun playing with your Big Bite and please give us a review on how it compares to the original Crop-a-dile.

Hope the pre-contests went well.

Have fun with your Big Bite! I also have the old Crop-a-dile and would love to know how good is the new one.

Drea said...

Hey..........after you use it, do me a favor and give us a review. I have been wanting someone to do one so I can decide if I want to fork out the dough for one or not.

Remember the "Fastenator"?? I bought that silly thing and hated it!

Don't want to get stung again.

I hope the pre-concert went well. :)

Kathy said...

Ooooh you lucky girlie! can't wait to hear some reports on this gadget - you know, just so that I can convince myself I need one!

Sharon Caudle said...

WOOHOO!!!!! I should get mine the first part of the week!!! I'm so excited for BOTH of us! Have lots of fun with your new toy!!!!!

Savitri said...

Look at the size of that thing!!! Let me know how you like it. If it's worth getting. I can't see how I'd need one since I never punch in the middle of my 12x12 layout or anything that's super deep. Does it do more than what the other one does besides depth?
