  22. Congratulation to your sister and your family. What a great accomplishment. Can’t wait to hear what you have to say about the ATG Guns. I have a 700 and love it. Thanks for all that you do and share.

  23. What a blessing to have such an amazing family. You and your sister are lovely and beautiful! Good Luck and congratulations. I am very curious about the charity your sister founded. That sounds wonderful!

  24. Good luck to your sis…..

  25. Good Luck to your sister. Can’t wait till friday. I have the pink ATG and love it.

  26. Jenny Zender says:

    That’s awesome that your sis is Miss Pennyslvania. Best of luck to her for Miss America. It would be awesome! Safe travels to you. Have fun while there too!

  27. Much good luck to your sister and have some wonderful sister bonding time.
    I checked out a few of the pink ATG’s at Michael’s to see the difference(s) between them and the one I have. I found that the tape cassette case is very difficult to open on them in each case. I was going to buy an extra one (on sale for $19.99), but nixed the idea. I bought a pink ATG 700 two years ago with a 1/4″ tape converter and it included several rolls of the gold tape from an online store. Yes, I did pay an arm and leg for it, but it still serving me well with no problems with heavy use. Does anyone else have problems opening the case of this less expensive pink ATG version? I’ll be curious to hear what Megan have to say about them. Thanks again, Megan, for sharing your wonderful tips.

  28. Congratulations to your lovely sister. You and she look so very much alike. I can, also, see the resembalance to your mom. She mom must be very proud.

    I have the pink atg gun and use it alot. It is a great tool.

  29. Good luck to your sister! I can’t wait for all the information you will be sharing. I love your sight!!!

  30. What a great experience! Sending positive thoughts your way….and waiting for the Ustream.

  31. Heather W says:

    Good luck to your sister. I’m sure you’ll both have a great time. I’m interested to see the difference between the ATGs as well as I just purchased the pink one at Michael’s one day special on it for 19.99. I’m new to the whole crafting thing so any tips I find out about are great. Unfortunately I’m waiting to get my replacement Cricut Expression (mine wouldn’t cut), but in the meantime I’m learning about all the possibilities with it.

  32. Good luck to your sister and Have fun with your Family!!

  33. Good Luck to your sister. You are going to have so much fun. I had a fiend who was in beauty pageants and I always had such a good time. What a talented family you have. God has blessed you.

  34. Best of Kuck to your sister~ she’s beautiful! I hope I remember to watch the pagent!
    I cant wait to watch the Fresh Look Friday video~ I am anxious to hear about the ATG gun…I dont own one at all, and would like to hear the pros and cons of them.
    Blessings to you for safe travels…

  35. Wow good luck to your sister. Have fun and be careful.
