Did You Know?

Did you know I design the cover elements for For Keeps Creative Scrapbooking - an Australian print scrapbooking magazine every month? Since about November last year, not long after I joined their Design Team - its pretty cool to be on the cover every month!
Now even though I design to their specifications, half the time what I design ends up being changed anyway!
The magazine website also offers the elements for free download - now its not much but you might find something there useful :)

Visit For Keeps Creative Scrapbooking Magazine and choose Downloads from the menu.

If you are AUSTRALIAN..

As of this morning several Australians are unable to access a handful of sites.We have calls into our ISPs, they admit there is a problem as they cant get in either but no idea why - so we are hoping they resolve it - in the meantime if any other aussie is affected, sites include but arent limited to:
Gina Miller
peppermint creative
natural designs
If you are Aussie and cant access these sites can you let us know and put a call or email into your isp support please!
If you are a site owner of any of the above, can you check and see if your server host is blocking Australian IP's for some reason?

Another 12x12 template for you

I've re-uploaded the file for this template but it's still not working.
It may have something to do with the internet outage Australia is
experiencing at the moment. I'll reupload again as soon as the problem
is resolved.

For the benefit of our anonymous poster:
PS. Other programs can use these sketches but they will be flattened into a single file. DIP/DIS can only use layered templates that are in png + format so they have not been able to use the templates created in tiff, psd etc - so these are something for us!
