      Oh no...I thought you just got it. Well good luck. Take it to a camera shop maybe it is something simple that you are missing.

      Oh no! what's happening with it? Maybe it just needs a cleaning and service?

      Happy Halloween, Carol!  I know it’s your favorite Holiday.  :) 🎃👻

  3. I've been without internet, phone, and tv service for the past few days. ConEd shut down our electricity for 15 minutes on Tuesday while they were fixing something in our complex. That blew everything out and we had to get the Verizon Cable guy come and fix everything. So now everything is up and running. Woo Hoo!

      That sounds horrible, glad to hear that someone was able to fix it.

      Yay, glad you’re back Carol! 

  4. I forgot all about DSD today. I hope to make the 9pm chat. Adobe just released Photoshop Elements 2019. I downloaded the 'free trial' to play with and see what's new and different from PSE15.

    1. alsoarty

      alsoarty

      Great! You can tell us what's different. How is your hand?

      I've heard that PSE 2019 has some cool text features, so make sure you check those out too!

  5. Thanks for the 'Foil Overlays' Amanda. I'm so glad that you finished them and I can't wait to use them. You are a peach.

      You're so welcome! :)

  6. I don't know how much longer I'll be able to do layouts. My hands are giving me too much pain between the arthritis and my pointer finger locking on me. Not a happy camper these days. But I still visit the store and make purchases.

      I haven't been on for quite awhile and this may be totally off base but just in case. I had a finger that was locking up - they called it trigger finger.  I was told not much they could do and they didn't consider surgery till it was totally unmovable. I got a second opinion and a steroid injection at the base of that finger.  Within days it was moving freely again. I have not seen your previous posts so it may not be the same sort of thing at all … but just in case.  Wishing you the best.

      Hi Pat. That is exactly what I have, Trigger Finger. I had cortisone injections at the base of the middle finger first and it worked. Then I had it done to the index finger which is the one that always locks on me. The injection hurt real bad and it didn't help at all. I have arthritis really bad in that finger and that doesn't help. Then I had surgery on both fingers. The middle finger is fine but the index finger still locks and sometimes the pain is so bad that hot wet towels are the only thing that unlocks the finger. But, only for a while.

      Have you tried using your waco tablet yet? My fingers are so much better since I got mine many years ago. Can’t live without it now. I did have my trigger finger repaied, and have had no problems si ce then, not being able to creat sucks. Take care Carol.

  7. Help! I've lost my mind, and I miss it terribly. I get as far as saving my layout as a PSE Layered File and then I'm lost. I try to save it as a Web Sharing file but no matter what I do, the file stays as PSD.

    1. lorac

      lorac

      I think that I finally figured it out.

    2. Becster

      Just in case, I also save mine as a JPG. I open the jpeg, resize it to 600x400 and when I save I change the DPI from 300 to 72. I add "-web" to the name so I know it's the smaller file.

      I never us the "save as web file" option.

  8. I haven't done a layout in a long time. I just finished the layout for the Swap Crop when I realized that I saved it as a PSD, but a flattened PSD file. Now I have to do the layout over from scratch. 😭

    1. alsoarty

      alsoarty

      Oh nooooooooooo - but you can still save it as a .jpg...

    2. MariJ

      MariJ

      Oh sorry about that Carol.  I hope you can remember the steps you did to make it easier?

    3. Becster

      Becster

      Oh no, I've done this before and I feel your pain! 😵

  9. Just checked out of the store. I didn't buy that much, as I already had a lot of the product that is being retired. I've been with Scrap Girls since November 2007 and so I've got a huge, huge, huge amount of product.

    1. MariJ

      MariJ

      Funny Carol, I noticed that also.  A lot of what I liked, I already had!  😱

    2. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      Wow Carol that is a long time to be hanging out here.

    3. Becster

      Becster

      That sounds like me, Carol. I started in August of 2010! My list is mostly small stuff, since I, too, have a lot of the retiring kits.

  10. I was copying what was in my wish list and pasted it into a word document. Then I lost all of my wish list. Now I have to add everything back to my list. I don't know what or why it happened.

    1. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      Computers test our patience at times!! this must be one of the times

    2. MariJ

      MariJ

      Oh dear, sorry Carol but I’m sure glad you have a copy of that list!  Makes me think about mine...........

    3. CRS

      CRS

      I'm so glad you got a copy made first...darn gremlins!

  11. You designers are killing me. I just looked at all the 'new' product and again, I blew my budget to smithereens. What gorgeous product you gals are putting out.

      Carol, I also got that message on most of these links you shared so the problem is possibly not yours but the artist who shared the link has not done it correctly.

      That's been fixed.   When we see errors like this please email me directly.  I will see it much quicker, and can get it fixed sooner.  Thanks!!

  13. New product, new designers, and a sale from Amanda's 12 year anniversary. Beautiful!

  14. Unfortunately, my hand was acting up again and I was unable to do any of the challenges for Sale-a-Bration week. I attended some of the chats, but that is as far as I got. I'm going to try and at least get a new siggy done.

      Wouldn't you know your hand would pick just the wrong time to act up! :(  I hope you are doing better.

      My hands are still giving me problems, so I'm trying to stay off of the computer and not use my hands, which is not an easy thing to do. But I popped into the store and purchased a few more items. Thanks Angie for keeping the store open for another night.

  15. While I was finishing up on my layout, I was watching 'Howie Mandel's Animals Doing Things' on NatGeoWild.

    Too funny.

     

  16. Ignore the email that I sent about deleting a layout from the gallery. It's been deleted.

  17. I think I need a new siggy that celebrates either Spring or Summer. Winter is over and so my siggy needs to be updated.

      Woo Hoo! Can't wait for that. I'll have to put that on my calendar.

      Oh, just in time! LOL. I was thinking the same as Carol.

      Oh funny, I was just looking at my Summer version of my Siggie and thinking how I hadn’t changed it in probably two years.   Funny thing is, Summer keeps coming back so it’s in style again now.  

  18. There are lots of gorgeous layouts in the gallery. I'll be busy today leaving comments on as many as I can. Beautiful work ladies.

  19. I'm having trouble, again, uploading my layout for the Tuesday Newsletter Challenge. Tried resizing and renaming to no avail. Now What??????

      I figured out the problem. Pretty sure it was a file naming issue.

      It's all fixed and uploaded. It was a naming problem. I had put an apostrophe in the title. April figured it out for me.

  20. A shooting at a Houston high school happened this morning. I just heard they caught the shooter and he is under arrest. I hope all the kids and teachers are okay.
