@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?

@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

ok, almost done - waiting for Janet's flowers, so there's space in the elements one, but just so you can see ALL THE STUFF!!! smiley there is no way to combine elements and papers - you wouldn't see ANY of the papers! smiley I also reduced the size of just about everything so that everything would fit in the preview. smiley

It looks lovely Meg, thank you so much for all your dedication. Thanks also to all the lovely ladies who made the QC and that participated in the creation. The final kit is wonderful!

Just saw that Lorien got back to me. For the life of me I thought I'd fixed the missing pixels. I'm not sure I'm going to have time to figure out what's going on before the deadline (have photography deadlines that just can't be pushed back). So, unless they are quick looks like I may need to pull out of the collab. Mental note, NEVER use the quick selection tool to extract elements. I thought I'd take a short cut this time around vs. using the time consuming way...but never again!

@ Meg you did a fantastic job on the previews!!!

I am so excited to be a part of this collab!!

@ Lorien, I checked all the links on the Collab page:

Here are the results:

Meg's link in the Alphas is NOT working. Also at the top where you credit here for the previews.

Janet's Digital JOys preview is missing.

Template's preview is missing for Francie's Studios
Alpha preview from Jessica is missing.

Everything else is working!!

@ Lorien


When I open the link to the Collaboration Forum, my antivirus gives me a message that this is a Malicious URL. Let me know if you need more info.

Thank you so much Michelle for checking. I´ll fix everything as soon as I help Fran with fixes.

Janet, don´t drop down. There are some of the flowers that are AMAZING (and will be truly missed on the colab, plus you are the only one who remembered to make leaves and all of them already passed QC). If you can´t fix on time, let me know and I´ll help. IMO, they´re just minor fixes...

Meg the previews are absolutely beautiful (and yummy!) It takes so much time to make them too. GREAT JOB!
And they sure display the compatibility of the colors in the palette (and don't they correctly represent all the goodies we all love to indulge in??!!!! YES they do!!! ...............I'm going to go eat a cookie now smiley smiley

@Lórien - Not sure if it matters, but the preview for the solids I did is not shown on the Collaboration link list. (I thought I had posted it after they passed QC, but I guess I didn't, my apologies)

Here it is if you need it:

Michelle, you can´t believe how this checklist was important. Some observations:

Meg's link in the Alphas is NOT working. Also at the top where you credit here for the previews.


Janet's Digital JOys preview is missing.

There is, indeed, something weird with her preview... I see it, but the link don´t end with .jpg, and I bet that´s why you can´t see it. I´ll try to PM Janet.

Template's preview is missing for Francie's Studios


Alpha preview from Jessica is missing.

Seems i thought we had this alpha, but we don´t have. I removed it from the list by now, if we can find this alpha we will include it.

When I open the link to the Collaboration Forum, my antivirus gives me a message that this is a Malicious URL. Let me know if you need more info.

Somehow, your antivirus thinks that it´s not a good thing because it is a url that directs to other place in a different server (a url in the site that directs to I needed to generate this url, however, because I don´t have access for lock/unlock/create topics on the blog trains forum. So, it´s under digital scrapbook discussion till everything is ready, but will move to colab later, so we all had a way to link to the right place in our blogs. It´s not fixable now, but I already thought on a solution for the next times we do collaborations, so we don´t have this issue anymore.

@Dawn: You probably post this preview and I missed it - sorry smiley It´s on the proper place now.

@Meg: I am in love with your previews. Guess I´ll need to ask preview-making favours some times, lol.

I scheduled my blog post. Its almost bedtime for me, so I went with the previews that have been posted, even though they aren't done. I'll update them tomorrow. This has turned out so amazing! We are rockstars! Thank you all!

Good night, my friend - after this colab is lauched I need to send an e-mail for you, lol.

Janet Scott: I sent you a new e-mail, hope it helps somehow.

Michelle: Can you do me a favor? It´s probably the last one: Janet Hull sent me an updated preview for the one you couldn´t see. Can you check if you can see it now?

Isn't this going live tomorrow, July 1st? Will you have a topic set up so that we can point our customers to the PixelScrapper site for other blog addresses? Or will you be supplying a Blog address list to include on our blogs?

Thank you -

Lorien - you've been busy playing maestro to this lovely collab. No worries. I'll shoot you a quick email.
