Thank's so much to all of you for this wonderful blog train... The kits are just has beautyful one after the others.... Thank's for sharing your work...:-)

Cat Armstrong - Sorry to hear that, haven't got over there yet but on my way!!l
I Just Wonted You TO Know I Love Your Green Star Cat It is so cute Tina

Thank you! There were more comments as the day went on. Its not at all what I expected and I think it came across as complaining, but I really wasn't. I was just overwhelmed by how many visitors I actually got. I've never had that many people visit my blog in one day. smiley I was just too tired to come back and clarify my post. smiley

@Cat, I'm still processing through my download, ~ I go back after I get mine all unzipped and comment. I will say that I loved how you made the wings on the bees translucent looking.

@Chantal . . . I apologize again for the inconvenience. Newer versions of WinZip can open RAR files. I just downloaded the free version from here and installed it on my computer to test it and make sure I am not misleading you. You do not have to pay for it. You can download it for free and make use of the evaluation version and it will unzip the RAR files I have shared.

If this does not answer your questions, you can always Google for more information if I am not explaining this so you can understand. There are tutorials on downloading, installing, and unzipping/un-raring files on-line that might prove far more helpful than anything I can type to you here.

Thanks again for your kind words. I am thrilled you want my part of the blog train and i am sorry it is causing you so much trouble.

wow...Ladies, I'm still downloading things from the Blog Train! I've unzipped most of them now as well, and glanced through them. Everything looks SOOO GREAT! I don't work outside the home, and yesterday, I didn't even work inside the home- exept for getting hot drinks for a sick teen, though he slept till 2pm! I was glad we had soup and brisket left-overs for dinner so I didn't have to cook and could just play with getting the Blog Train kits!

Todays assignments:
1) Downloading the last 5 or so, and getting those on BOX which I couldn't get on my never displays correctly from that site.
2) Checking TOU's and tagging stuff in Picasa so I can use them properly!
3) commenting on what I enjoyed the most from designers!
Well, it might be Wednesday before I get to #3. Don't think hubby will want brisket 3 days in a row! lol

I loved seeing everyone's pieces. What an awesome group for my first blog train! I used Google Drive and I think it was downloadable in one file-if people had problems will you let me know?

Thank you ladies for all the wonderful creations you are sharing. What a wonderful train.

Can someone please tell me how to get Mollys #24 as it goes to a weird site and asks me to log in. I can't find any download links for it.

Thanks again everyone, Lana

Thanks for your parts everyone! Hopefully I didn't miss anyone! You all really knocked this out of the park. smiley

I'm having the same problem as Lana ... can't get Molly's #24

I am unzipping and leaving comments while downloading, so I haven´t downloaded many parts yet. Guess I´ll take some time to finish it too!

Thanks Melissa. I even went to her blog and facebook. nothing there. smiley Hope it gets fixed so we can have it along with the other great pieces.

I too had problems with Molly's and I also had problems with one of Melo's downloads. I'll try again later.

However, I've been through the list, and I must say, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! So fun! Hopefully, I remembered to leave "thanks" where I could - if I couldn't or forgot - just know I appreciate each and every contribution!

It was also fun to learn about other designers and this thing called "art journaling" - which I started learning about from Violet's blog. Gonna have to research that some more. I like the artsy look of it. I get caught up in my own little world sometimes, and don't always realize what other things are being done/designed.

Again, great job everyone! Really excited to finish unzipping and exploring all the files!! smiley

Thanks Brooke and I agree, Amazing!

Thank you for the many wonderful kits!

This blog train is a pleasure to ride. Everyone has created such wonderful art. I am very thankful and have left thanks on as many face book pages as possible. Cat I left a message on your face book page. I hope you can find it.
I did have trouble with opening downloads. Janet I have 3 of yours that didn't download and unzip. smiley I had a couple others that did not work as well. What am I doing wrong? I have an old computer? It is still use my XP, I am thinking about upgrading. I need advice, I don't want to miss out on using all the beautiful artwork.

Whew! Finally made it through the whole list! I just wanted to let those of you without blogs know that I love and appreciate your work!

Thank you all for the efforts. Still have to unzip and organize but that has been added to my to do list.

@ Judy...I have an old Windows XP system as well. I've had at least 5 downloads that I had to redo, because when I tried to unzip they told me the file was corrupt. After a swinging back to those sites, I've been able to get most of them to work again. Still have 2 that I've yet to unzip and verify. So I guess I'd say try downloading them again if you can. Sometimes I think my trouble is a blend of and old system and perhaps not the best internet. We went high speed only 3 years ago, before that move we were only able to get dial-up. But then there are levels of High Speed access as well. Make a note of which ones you've had trouble with, and if you still are having trouble, I'd comment specifically here and on their sites. I'm sure they'd want to try and help you get a good file you can use...said as a first time contributor. Part of what I've been doing since I posted my portion was watching my blog AND here to see if anyone is having troubles with my files, or if anyone else had troubles at the few I had to go back to and try a second download at. I guess I've just seen and had so much troubles with computers that I expect a few glitches here and there, especially in SUCH A BIG blog train! I'm just so pleased with large participation and quality! smiley

TYVM to everyone for sharing wonderful goodies, awesome brushes, papers and ellies. All of you do an amazing art and every month I was surprised with the fantastic kits. I adore the art journal and mixed media so I simply felt in love with the kits from Lou Anne and Violet.

I forgot: Molly smiley It's impossible with tumblr. I tried to follow all the steps but stays asking me to enter the captcha +10 times, I got exhausted.

Laura and Judy,
I too get the file is corrupt message, but it is only because i am using Windows and the corrupted files are Mac.
When the message box appears telling me that the file is corrupt I just ignore/close it, I never click cancel. The file will then open ok.

This post is for all the generous designers whom I couldn't leave a message for on your blog.... smiley

@Saskia: Your part of the train is real cute - tyvm! smiley I would have left a comment on your blog, but I am not a subscriber to AIM, Google, WordPress, etc. (sorry).

@Jill: I left a message on your blog, but I don't think it took so thought I should leave thanks in here, too, just in case. smiley The honey splat was very cute, btw!

@Tina: Had a problem leaving a message on your blog, too (doesn't like the Name/URL selection maybe?), so thought I should say thank you in here, too, just in case. smiley

@Harriet: Tyvm! Love the lattice papers & that spring WA... Any chance you have the splat (that's behind the WA) available for d/l, too? (crossing my fingers)

@Shelly: Tyvm! I really like the papers you created... I would have left a comment on your blog, but I am not a subscriber to AIM, Google, WordPress, etc. (sorry).

@Lorien: Great job - I really like what you created! Those hummingbirds are real cute!

@Sunny: Tyvm! I really like the bohemian print you put on some of your elements (like the bird) - it's cute!

@Laura: Tyvm! My favorite part of your kit were the monotone journaling cards you talked about in your blog entry - I really like them - simple, understated, yet beautiful...

@Lou Anne: I don't know if this is your first time designing or not, but you did a great job - thanks for sharing! I would have left a comment on your blog, but I am not a subscriber to AIM, Google, WordPress, etc. (sorry).

@Molly: Your papers are really cute - tyvm!

@JanetScott: Wow, it looks like you put together a fabulous kit! Hopefully I can get my son to d/l it for me, since I'm not on FB... (yup, I'm one of those - I want no part of FB smiley )

Thank you so much ladies for all your wonderful kits. I love this color palette and the theme. I'm new to digital scrapbooking and I don't have the best program quite yet, but I am super excited to add your kits and alphas to my stash. Thank you again smiley

love the colors, love the theme, love to meet some new designers! thankyou very much !!!

well, for me when I get to looking at most of the downloads that are "corrupt" they are not the right size. For some reason the download just stops at like 3,000Kb when the file is supposed to be 38 MB. But I rarely get any failure message on the download part. Could be Chrome browser or my internet provider. At least those were the issues I had this time. I don't recall which ones they were as to whether or not they had the Mac files in them...hmmm...I'll have to see if I can figure that out.

Well, since I number the kits so this OCD, (no CDO'er), can keep things straight and not miss anything...I just left them in while I went through to comment on things and say thanks! I left a few messages on the blogs, but honestly it's easier to copy and past my txt file from my log on the blog train and post all at once here.

WOW! Very Successful Blog Train! Cudos!

Hi Jasmine,

I know what you mean about the hard-drive space issue. I'm using a fairly new (about 1-1/2 years old) laptop with a pretty good-sized hard drive (650MB). In addition, I have two 1TB EHDs and a 250MB EHD. You would think with all that storage capacity, I would have enough, but enough is never enough when it comes to collecting and storing scrapbook art!!! smiley
