Silhouette Cameo

Hello all my Crafting Cohorts!!!  I have a problem, and I know that one of you will be able to help me, or knows someone who can help me, or knows someone, who knows someone who can help me, or at least knows someone, who knows someone, who knows someone who can help me!!! Here is the situation, as some of you know, I recently bought the Silhouette Cameo, because I have heard only wonderful things about it.  What I haven't heard about it, is that you have to be a Nuclear Physicist to use it!!!  Now I pride myself in being able to follow directions, but, first of all the Silhouette Cameo directions are far from directions!! They don't explain how to USE the darn thing!!! I don't know how many of you have the Cameo, or how many of you have the Cameo, and like me, own the Cameo, but just look at it on the shelf.  Now don't get me wrong, it looks very nice on the shelf, but it just seems that by sitting there on the shelf, it is failing to fulfill it's purpose just sitting there looking pretty!!  I have decided that the Cricut was made to be used by kindergartners, and the Cameo, was, well, not!!! The page that you open to find what you want to cut out, or draw, or any of the other things that it does, that I wouldn't know, because, I am NOT a Nuclear Physicist!!! I am wondering if anyone else, or if anyone knows of anyone else, or if anyone knows of anyone, who knows of anyone else who has the Cameo, and not only has the Cameo, but has the Cameo and knows how to use it??? I have gone on You Tube, and there are a few people who have made video's on the Cameo, but I seem to need someone who has made a video on the very basic, basic information on how to use it.  So I ask you my Crafting Cohorts, if any of you have any information on the Cameo, and would love to help me, I would appreciate it, and if you don't, I just might have to have a challenge, and can anyone guess what the candy would be for the winner????  LOL  Thanks all for listening to my latest among many rant's!!!! karen♥
