I just joined your site and picked Tropics as my free kit. I have been able to download everything but the patterned paper. When I click on the download link, it downloads the alpha set instead.
Sorry for the problem, Lisa. Try downloading the kit directly from the kit page instead: http://www.pixelscrapper.com/brooke-gazarek/kits/tropics-papers-kit-summer-beach-ocean-vacation-distressed-pink-aqua-blue-green
I've given you 12 DC so that you can get it "for free."
