  12. Only 5.....hmmm....
    1. Teardrop - great font cartridge for both formal and informal layouts.
    2. Ashlyn's Alphabet - for the same reason. A girl can't have too many fonts can she?
    3. Animal Kingdom - we go to the Iowa State Fair every year, and this would be a great cart for those LOs.
    4. Everyday Paper Dolls - I have Paper Doll Dress up which is great for holiday/kid LOs, but this would be good for almost any LO.
    5. Baby Steps - I have NO carts featuring babies. My 4 boys are nearly grown, so hoping for grandkids someday. I also work with several young women who are just starting their families, and this would be a good cart for cards/gift bags for them.
