Has she used the CE2 before? It isn't nearly as user friendly as the previous models. It gets some pretty bad reviews as well - http://www.cricut.com/Shopping/de...-1478.aspx
. I have a ton of Cricut products, but I'm basically done buying the stuff for now. If she is tech savy I would look into other options like the Silhouette Cameo. If she's dead set on the CE2, I would watch Cricut.com for deals as well. They have been posting new deals every day this week.
