Technology Woes

Oh i could just rip every hair out of my head, i finally thought i had solved my camera porblems.  On Friday i had to take my camera back to the store where i bought it and spent 5 hours no less verbally cussing and phoning head office and talking to the heirarchy of the store and finally got a new camera for my efforts.  How has that hepled me?  not one bit, i now have a new camera that i have to sit and read the manual to opperate, so i think i have grasped the operation of this new one, yeah RIGHT! now when i try to load any of my pics to the dt blogs, it wont load.  So i am posting this card on my own blog that was intended for a dt submission, however it looks like i will have to come up with something new for that now.
This is one of the new spring kit stamps that i recieved on Thursday in the mail, is she not the most adorable little princess?  Lots of glittah which we all LOVE, some cherry blossoms, a few pearls and a ribbon for the girly feel.  I am gonna inter this into the Just Magnolia challenge since i used their sketch.

  2. Hi sweetie, so sorry that you have to have such problems.. :o(

    I myself just bought a new camera and have been reading the manual for 2 days so that I will know how to make it work. Then I am sure it will be a PITA to get it on the computer. Because I am a creature of habit and it will be something new. Did I tell you that I really don't like change!!! uhggggggggggg
    anywhooooo I LOVE your card sweetie and I wish for a better tomorrow for you.
    big hugs, Janiel

  26. Paola, this is absolutely gorgeous. Oooh, Tilda is too adorable. Can't wait 'til I get mine. Love the colour combo and your fabulous colouring work. Nice touch with the glitters.
    I adore your card.

    So sorry to hear about the problems with your new camera. Hope you get it resolved soon.

    Re my stone opening/window on my card that you asked about, I found this grey-streaked scrapbook paper that looks like cement or concrete to me. I cut out brick shapes and distress the edges of each brick. Yikes, that took forever to do. I had already glued the circle with the background scene on a much larger circle. I then glued the bricks to surround the inner cicle. Hope that explains it.


  27. Paola i'm sorry about the whole camera thing i could relate.Your cards are so CAU-TE!! Love these new little girls.Very pretty cards,RubyM:)
