Love your layout, MamaCake! It's lovely, colorful, original, interesting, etc.! LOL!
Thanks for your kind words and concern, Carolyn! The power did go out, but during yesterday afternoon, not last night. We had one thunderstorm after another yesterday: in the morning, in the afternoon, and then a gazonga one last night. And wouldn't you know it, but when the one hit last night and I tried to shut down my 'puter, that's when good ole Microsoft decided to install updates ... 13 of them! I tried everything short of turning my 'puter off or pulling the plug, I was so nervous with all the lightning, rain, and thunder. Thank goodness, my 'puter finally got thru all that and I could shut down safely. After that, I stayed off till now (about 10:30 am here) since we had another shower this morning. I live in the "rainforest" part of the island, and it's usually pretty damp here anyway, but now it's downright soggy! You are right about it being beautiful, though ... I love it here, storms and all!
You girls are doing GREAT!!! You still have about an hour and 15 minutes to get your pages in. Coupons will be going out through the day, so be on the look out in your PM boxes here at GS.
In gallery, right click the big image of your LO and choose "Copy Image". Then come here and hit the "Insert Image" icon (tree pic) and paste your image url (will end w/ .jpg). To get it to link so we can give you love, then highlight that whole thing you just inserted, go back to the gallery and copy the URL at the top. Then back in your post, click the "insert link" icon (world) while that is still highlighted and paste.
I always have 2 tabs open when I do this. Hope that helps. Feel free to PM me if you have questions.
Yikes! Am I too late? I just got done ... as usual, I do too much tweaking ... LOL! OK, now, where do I go to post this? ... hmmm ...

Thank you for your help - am probably too late for deadline. Even my post in gallery looks small and fuzzy - it's not. I worked very had on my layout and now you can't even see the details. I really appreciate that you took the time to try to help me :)
Here's my LO ... I hope I get the links right the first time ... hooray! I think I did! Wooo-hoooo!!!!! :36_1_19:
Journal strips read as follows:
(1) Asking me why I scrapbook is like asking me why I read ... because I’d go crazy
without it! Thirty years ago, I learned an important fact about myself, that unless I
read before bed each night, whether a little or a lot, I become unsettled. Once I
started scrapbooking, I discovered the same is true.
(2) I’ve worked as an editor, librarian, and English teacher all my life, professions
that require a lot of exactness. Now I want to be messy. I want to play with colors,
shapes, and design instead of spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
(3) In 1965, I began a book of clippings and quotes, taping everything down. In the
1980s, I bought magnetic albums from Walmart and learned about acid the hard way.
In 2005 I spent a fortune on eBay buying paper, embellishments, and rubber stamps.
Then I discovered digital scrapbooking and totally fell in love with it.
(4) The digital scrapbooking community is the most supportive online community
I have ever encountered. Forget Facebook! The people one gets to know at sites
like GingerScraps are the real thing! And when a catastrophe happens somewhere
in the world or when one of their members suffers a loss, the outpour of compassion
and help is amazing.
(5) Living more than 2,000 miles away from family and friends is sometimes lonely.
By posting the layouts I create at various places on the WWW, folks back home
can keep up with what I’m doing and I can show them my love, especially my four
