This Blog train idea is really cool and I'd love to download some of the art people have produced but when I attempt to download from their blogs, my security software goes crazy! Lots of threats identified and viruses blocked - does anyone else have this problem? I'm afraid to download anything and whole bunch of pop up windows appear - crazy! Any suggestions?

@Carla: I am almost sure that no one has attached virusus to the kits. Most of the download sites are safe but I know from my experience that some sites have a lot of rubbish on them. I often download kits and check for virusus before I unzip and I have never found anything. So I think you can put your security software a bit lower if you are going to give it another try downloading. Don't forget to put it on again when you are done. Maybe Jordan can help with how to do that if he has any time. smiley


Thank you for hosting this train and your contribution. I loved your varied hearts and arrows. They would make Cupid 'green-eyed'.

Amazing work everyone! I am continually amazed by the talent and generosity of all you wonderful ladies that participate month after month! Thank you so much for your beautiful creations!

Carla- it may just be my observation as a long-time downloader...it may be the host site where the links are being downloaded from. I have problems with Mediafire because they plant so many ads on their page. I too am skeptical when it comes to downloading anything from Mediafire. I pay for 4Shared and SugarSync so I can provide the ad free links which is nice for the downloader smiley I know it's not possible for everyone to do that so you just have to be careful. If you do get any that download, run your virus or spyware on that file before you unzip it...just as a precaution.

Hi Carla!

This usually happens because many of the contributors do not have paid accounts to upload sites.
Those sites have a lot of pop up ads to help pay for their servers...so you can safely lower your
anti-virus software like Nadia suggested. The sites that everyone has been uploading to have been
around for awhile and usually keep up pretty good in making sure that their own servers are virus free.

Just make sure to raise your anti-virus software back up to where you normally have it set, once you
have downloaded all of the kits that you would like to have.

Cynthia Arnett, thank you so much for your lovely kit.

Thank you for your kit and facebook gifts. The flairs are so cute. I love your layout using the hearts from the designers of this month’s blog. Thank you for taking the time to share that layout, it was a nice way of showing off the entire blog train.
