@Dawn - I completely agree - I had no idea either! smiley This is my first design experience, and it's definitely been fun smiley

Thank you meg for calling my attention about it. I changed her mini kit for the right part and also added Lyllah Raven´s blog, which I found out this noon.

OMG! did you guys know we have



LOL, so cool Meg. You made me laugh smiley

I think I am maxing out my computer's performance right now... smiley

damn, that's a lot of papers!

what a super cool preview!

I hope no one else is doing last-minute papers, 'cause I had to merge all those layers! hahaha

I THINK I'm just waiting for Janet Scott's fabric flowers to pass QC & have her email me? ... someone let me know if I should wait for anyone else!

OMG Meg you did a fabulous job of putting that together!!!! Such patience for all those papers! Amazing!

Lórien, I will be hosting my part at my brand spanking new blog.

Made by Holly Wood

Meg, you did a job on the big preview of papers!

OMG, I am so so so so soooooooooooooooooooooooo happy to see all these brand new blogs popping to get together at this colab! smiley you all!

And Holly, what a super fun blog template smiley

@Lorien, could you please change my blog link to Thanks so much, and thanks for putting this whole thing together, it turned out sooooooo awesome!!!

@Meg, I LOVE the paperspreview!!! Thanks for all your hard work!!

Done! Sorry for the mistake smiley

@Lorien, I just sent the file your way and responded to your email. Thanks so much for helping out!

@Meg...absolutely fantastic preview for the papers. As soon as I pass QC, I'll send the file your way. smiley

@Janet: Somehow your e-mail didn´t arrive here smiley

glad you like it! smiley I'm debating whether you'll actually be able to see any of the papers if I put the elements on top! there are 103 so far, plus Janet's flowers to come... either I make the elements smaller, or just do a separate preview - what do you guys think?

@Lorien did the templates pass? and should I go on and do previews of the templates w/o being qc?

Edit: I just check my email and I'll do a finished preview of templates once I pass the qc on templates.

@Meg love love the previews.

Edit: I like them separated but which ever way works best for you.

@Meg: Probably separated previews will drive you less crazy, lol

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry I didn't realize anyone was talking to me! Sorry I didn't get back to you guys sooner. Yes, my blog is, and I'll host my part there. Thank you!!! Again, sorry for the late reply!

@Lorien, I was kind of curious as to whether it would make it or not. I just replied to your address -
Lórien Rezende ( I just found your other email address where it should have been sent. Crossing my fingers that it arrived safely now!

megbertapelle {at} (wanted to cut and paste this somewhere so I don't need to search for it once I pass QC). smiley

I think separate is great. You could then take your separate one and plunk it on the papers as a whole preview and people could keep what they wanted. I know one designer that does a lot of kits with over 110 ellies and it does get pretty busy but it is kind of fun trying to find everything! She does the three previews.

Up to you Meg, afterall you have been so gracious with your time in doing this!

By the way, I clicked on the link to me from the Collab forum post linked in the first post here and it says it does not exist.

my blog is:

The link in the collab isn't working for mine either. my blog is

Just checked it again and still not working.

Will this be like a blog train that we post everyone's blogs?

hey Lorien,
I think I'm going to need until Saturday to finish the elements & alphas previews (and possibly a mega-one if that will even show much of anything! haha). I hope that's ok - I'm working today & the day is getting away from me! smiley

Also, not sure if you got the email from Linda, but can you clarify what you would like us to post on our blogs? a link back to the PS thread, or to the next/previous person? or any combination? smiley THANKS!

Michelle and Rachelle, thank you for pointing out the mistakes. I forgot to write http:// in front of your links, but I guess it´s fixed now. Can anyone check if I forgot any other one while I do a quality check?

Janet: I don´t know why, I didn´t receive any of your messages. I checked my SPAM box and so on. Try to send to my e-mail directly (at loriensworkshop (at)

All: sorry for not updating you during the day, I had an issue to solve today.

Ops, I forgot to answer something important: And only now saw Meg´s message:

@Meg: Do you think it´s possible to finish till Sunday noon or something like that? If so, it´s ok smiley

to everybody: Important notice

Please post somewhere on your blog posts the following link: There is no need to put previous/next or all blogs on your blog post, as the list will be here, with all the previews smiley

If you want, you can put the colletive previews on your blog posts too, as soon as Meg finishes them, but it´s not mandatory.

excellent! I'm sure I'll finish tomorrow - got a bunch of non-kiddo time coming to me smiley thanks!
and thanks for the update on the link to add to the blog! smiley

Dang, the email said that it was delivered safely. I'll go ahead and send it again. smiley

Update - Email resent. Crossing my fingers!

oh, Lorien, it looks like the links to my blog are not working either - it looks like the links have a bunch of forum post code or URL stuff in front of it smiley
