Scrap It Simple - Wilma4Ever Blog Train for May 2013

I am so sorry! I was stuck in the mountains of Tennessee with no internet access. I verified with the resort before I left that I would have access. When we got there, they informed us that their internet was down. Oh the frustration when I couldn't get my part uploaded in time!

But we're back at home with working internet. Hurray!

Here is my very late contribution. This is my very first CU (commercial use) kit, so I'm excited! Please note that there are two download links for the papers, Papers1 and Papers2. You'll need to download both to get all 7 papers.

Dropbox     Elements     Papers1    Papers2
4Shared      Elements     Papers1    Papers2

As always, please let me know if you have problems downloading or with the kit. I'd love to hear from you if you do download.

Late Blog Train Kits, Spotty Resort Internet and the Laptop That Lost It's Mind on Cape Cod

And this kit is very late. It's not even on the blog train list. I had everything ready to go, except the preview, before we left for a trip to Cape Cod three days before the kit was due.

I made sure I copied everything to my portable external hard drive. I double checked the laptop to make sure it was working and that the software I needed was loaded. It's the previous version, but I'd purchased full version copy of the new version, so I'm in compliance. I updated the virus scanner and ran it. I had it all ready to go. I made sure everything was packed, including back up cd's, just in case. I confirmed that the laptop case was in the car before we left. I was ready for anything, or so I thought.

And then we get to the resort. Between the spotty internet service that went down around 9 pm every night and didn't come back up until just after 9 am every morning, and my laptop deciding to lose it's mind on the first night we were there, well, I didn't get the kit finished and uploaded in time to make the blog train cut off. Yes, I had my recovery CD. Of course, it was corrupted. And even though the resort finally found a temporary workaround for the internet service, it was too late for the blog train. Lessons in patience, right? Argh!

I thought about not uploading the kit here, and I'm happy that I thought again! 

The April Triune Blog Train theme is Above Rubies Proverbs 31:10. And the colors are gorgeous! I had so much fun with this one.

My laptop is back in business and I'm working on May's Triune Blog Train kit. May's theme is Father's Strength. You are going to love the colors! The blog train will go live on 15 May, so check back then. 

Here is the rest of the blog train:
