OMGoodness you guys! I could have sworn I posted this last week! :eek: I'm sitting here wondering why no one wants to play with me this month! :rolleyes: Janie, I thought you got fed up with waiting and deserted me! :l

Brain... oh, brain.... where are you brain.... ????

I'll be right back with the goods!! ;)

Here goes! Welcome to September's Wordart Challenge!!

Okay, I'll be honest with you all... I've run out of quick tips for you guys! :o I haven't had the time lately to get my more advanced (well, at least writing it out is advanced! :DD ) stuff written out for you guys, so we're going to have another easy month here! I hope you all enjoy the wordart, and again, you can either just decorate the wordart with papers/styles/elements/etc... or you can use the wordart (decorated or plain) on a layout... or both! ;) :DD

The phrase I chose was something that just popped into my mind the other day when it was 90+ degrees here!! We have had an unusually HOT and seemingly never-ending Summer here in the Northeast (USA) - which is pretty rare and has been just amazing!! I've enjoyed every single second!

So, here you are, enjoy, I can't wait to see what you do with it!! :DD

hi -- really missed you last month... and now? my harddrive crashed MAJORTIME on 9/11. so, we're now waiting for our new pcs to arrive AND word of whether the last 2 months of files are retrievable (we couldn't do it & neither could Bestbuy local store geeks... so it's in the hands of our youngest son's computer techy friend).

so, i probably won't be able to do this month's challenge.

FORTUNATELY, all my photos, digi LO's and digi kits are on 2 other drives used for "storage" and were safe!!

what did i learn from this? don't do all my backups on the maindrive!! backup REGULARLY to an EXTERNAL harddrive! (i did consistent partial backups, but to the main drive... only did it monthly or so to an external and with the summer & stuff, my last full backup on an "external" drive was 7/2... so potentially lost 2 months & 1 week worth of emails, $$, docs & more!

but, even though i can't participate this month... sure am glad to see this challenge back up & am looking forward to octobers :-)

awww, that stinks Janie!!! Don't worry, the downloads are here indefinitely, so if you want to use this wordart, you can download whenever you're ready.... and I'll even give you the points for the challenge! ;) I'm really not a stickler for deadlines ( Procrastination is my middle name! :l ) and there are always exceptions for such circumstances as this! :DD

Hope everything gets sorted for you soon!! I can't imagine not having my computer!! I would probably cry everyday!!! LOL!!

we have a laptop that i'm using to TRY to keep up with email & facebook... and i've been working on recovering some $ data (ie online order invoices, etc)... but my pics harddrive is installed on hubby's pc (so we could do a FULL backup of it) and my external with all my digiSB is detached and sitting all lonely next to my desk...

thanks for allowing the points even if i'm late -- btw, where/how are the points tracked... my name isn't on the list that posted elsewhere in the forum... how can i find out how many point i have to-date??

suggestion for future WA tutorial...?how did you get the cool full word shadow for this months WA base?


09-22-2010, 08:22 AM
great suggestion on the shadows! However, this particular one is part of the font! :l But, I can most certainly work on a tutorial on how to do perspective shadows... even though I stink at them!! LOL! Or even a 3D type text... ooo, now I have thoughts running rampant here!!! Thanks Janie!! :DD

Oh... the challenge point spreadsheet (https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AvnK-_ligjb_dGFjaV9COUpSY0YxNzNJSkxHODE5YWc&hl=en)should have you listed on it, I've been trying to update regularly.... there are tabs across the bottom for each challenge, make sure you are on the Wordart tab ( it defaults to the Progressive Scrap Tab) You should see your name on line 18 with a total of 75 points for the Wordart challenges... let me know if you can't see it and we'll try to figure out what the problem is! :)

Here is my take on this. So interesting searching through so many pics.

I forgot to add my link last night - duh

here it is ;)

ok, now i "have" to have that font! can you share the name? (i'm a font addict).

i'm pretty excited after last night's phone call from our youngest son. the night before they were unsuccessful with data recovery from my harddrv... it had shown the file folders but they were empty. his computer buddy said it was the worse harddrv that's he's ever seen! (and he works on them all the time). well, he tried the "freeze the harddrv" (last ditch effort) and not only were the files visible, he was able to copy all my VITAL files to his harddrv and then created DVD's of the files to mail to me. YIPEE!! God answered this prayer "YES!" -- continuing to pray that the files will all be readable and corruption-free.

thanks for the points file link -- what i found before must have been a different older file OR i just missed the links at the bottom.

Oh, how awesome!!! Yeeehaw!! I'm so glad your getting your stuff back!! :(( :DD

The font is called TOYLAND by Nick Curtis and can be downloaded HERE (http://www.urbanfonts.com/fonts/TOYLAND.htm) :DD

new pc is now functioning -- this is my 1st project using the PSE 8 (previously used vs5) -- had to play with it a bit... gotta go figure out how to set up my effect "favorites" if it didn't take that option away.

button icons are in different locations... hope i can move them around to where i'm used to using them. anybody know of a forum topic about the differences between the versions of PSE and stuff??
