My antivirus program expired yesterday so I decided to renew it today. I know there are free programs available but I'm not entirely convinced by them yet and I'm sure you have to put up with adverts etc, which I couldn't be bothered with!
I had un-ticked the automatic renew thing last year and I'm so glad I did - they would've charged me £60 to renew but by buying the product as new I got it for £25! From the same place! It was a bit of a nightmare to install though as I didn't think to un-install the first one and then it wouldn't install the new one and then it installed a free trial one instead of the one I paid for but I eventually got it sorted out. And I made sure to go back in and un-tick the automatic renew thing again!
Computers, who'd have em!
Anyway, how about a new challenge to get you going for the start of the week?
It's time for a new one at Eclectic Ellapu and it's the Pink teams turn this week, and the lovely Laurian's turn to host. The challenge she chose for us this week is...
A Recipe; 1 die cut, 2 patterned papers,
3 embellishments (can include digi)
So, here's what I did;
The image is a digi from Paper Pretties called Snuggle Bunny and I coloured it with the following promarkers: Aubergine, Plum, Amethyst, Lilac, Cyan, Denim Blue, April Shower, Powder Blue & blender.
I edged the image with Decoart snowwriter for a bit of glitteryness!
The papers are DCWV, Nana's Kids. I love this paper cos it's so textured - the glitter you can see on the bottom and the spots at the top are embossed too.
The sentiments are by Pink Petticoat called Tiny New Baby which I printed onto safmat and attached to the image. The buttons are gorgeous and are from House of Zandra, but I got them at the NEC.
And my die-cut is a Simple Banner by Memory Box which I've hand-written the name of the new arrival onto.
The inside has the same elements as the front including the ribbon from my stash and a button charm.
So take a trip to Eclectic Ellapu to check out what the rest of the Pink team did and have a go too!
Oh and can I just say that I have been having some trouble leaving comments. On some blogs when I click to post my comment it goes to the white "503 error" page. I have tried several times to leave comments and have even opened up Chrome to try there (even though I don't really like it!) so apologies if my comment didn't go through or if you've gotten several of the same comment from me!
I wish blogger would sort out all these issues - life is just too short!
