First off an apology. I did not get the extra elements done for Let's Go Fly A Kite. I will, but not today.
The reason why is this: I have a laptop with a teeny tiny hard drive. So I have always kept my scrapbooking and designing stuff on a portable external hard drive. Well, last Saturday I was finishing this kit, and my son climbed onto my lap and knocked my EHD to the hard wood floor. It died.
I lost EVERYTHING. All of my freebies I have ever downloaded, all of the kits I've paid for, and EVERY SINGLE LAYOUT I HAVE EVER DONE. Luckily, MOST of the LOs I've done, I have uploaded to Costco to print, so I can just order a CD of the jpeg files, but the editable PSD documents are gone. My last four layouts I did, I hadn't uploaded and I only made a quick page out of one of them. Luckily, I hadn't deleted my photos from my laptop yet, but I'd thought about it. I am soooo glad I had not done that yet.
I took my defunct EHD to my local computer guru, and he said I have to send it to one of those specialty places that charges an arm and a leg. I don't know what this means, but he said "it doesn't spin". Which roughly translated means, "Your EHD is fried, that will be $1,000 to set your files free."
So please back up your stuff. All of it. Back up your EHD. I don't want anyone to go through what I am going through. This whole week has been sureal for other reasons as well, but the EHD REALLY put me behind.
