*Scrapagogo - Go to you*

*Apologies in advance for the lengthy post!*

Firstly I wanted to share some information that I found very useful, it was emailed to me from someone called DarkUFO on the blogger forum. Here goes:

DarkUFO has posted an answer to the question "Why do I keep appearing as anonymous?":
Known Issue
Here are some things that worked for a couple of people.


1) Before attempting to Login in Make sure the "Remember Me" Checkbox is UNTICKED
2) Make sure you are running the latest version of your browser, if not, upgraded it.
3) Make sure you REALLY have cleared both your COOKIES and CACHE
4) Once Cleared shut down the browser
5) Then Open it again and Check that the Cookies and Cache are indeed Empty. This is very important. The problem seems to be with corrupt cookies and cache files
6) If that is OK try going to www.blogger.com . Don't login yet, press CTRL-F5 and then try logging in again
7) If that still does not work try logging into Gmail first and then go to www.blogger.com and try again
8) If that does not work try going to this address http://www2.blogger.com/home
9) If that does not work try going to draft.blogger.com
10)  If you use IE8 or IE9 try pressing the compatibility button (at the end of the address bar) when you're on your blog page.
11) If all those fail, try installing another browser to see if that works eg Firefox, Chrome, Opera etc
12) If you comments box on your blog is not appearing, change from Embed Comments to Popup or Full-Screen until the issue is fixed. Also try. Or you can try , but backup your blog template first, is to try resetting all your defaults. see screenshot. You do this from the Design, Edit HTML screen. (http://i54.tinypic.com/vfv883.png) This fixes about 99% of issues with the missing comments box.


If those do not work, leave your details on this thread

I hope that helps, I found a solution after point 1 then clearing the cookies!

Right, back to business!
I rather meanly {but by accident} left out the pic of THOSE SHOES from yesterdays post...

READY?




♥ ♥ ♥

Saturday was wonderful - I just can't believe how quick it went! We arrived bright and early at Branksome place



....and was greeted with a cute goody bag and a voucher for the shop :)


The first class we took was by Rebekah Montague and we did lots of small cutting and making little flowers, It was very fiddly but I loved it and really love the results



The flowers took quite a while as we had to fold 15 small squares into origami flowers then glue each one... then glue them together! So we spent the time from the first class to our next class trying to finish this in our crop space


The next class we took was by Kirsty, I found it strange but satisfying to screw up the paper for the layout and I really like the effect it has given.



After the last class it was time to go home, so we packed up our stuff and reluctantly left! After the journey home I decided I hadn't scrapped enough so I broke out a class kit that I brought earlier on in the day and had a go at that.


I loved all of the distressing involved!



*Congratulations if you made it to the end of this post!*

Right I'm off, Emily has woken up from her nap....
Bye for now!

Your layouts are beautiful Rachel (and so are your shoes!)

And thanks for the tips, I'll keep it in mind in case it starts happening to me

Fabulous layouts, I can see you got a lot out of the day! Those flowers do look fiddly, but very worth it. I really like the birdie on the same layout too!

Thanks for showing us the shoes, they look every bit as special as they should (just like your very own glass slippers!) x

Wonderful layouts,Rachel.
Thanks for all those tips....I've found that it's only the embeded comments boxes I have trouble with....and would advise anyone who's got one to change it.

I meant to look into the Scrapagogo day as I think it was quite close to me and totally forgot! Looks great, all your pages are fantastic! Those origami flowers sound difficult but look amazing. Was your bunting made by sticking strips of ribbon down? Looks very effective xxx

Rachel, I am hoping this comment works!
I installed google chrome a week or so ago and have still had problems on some days ... I have also changed my comments as well, as Jacky suggested.

Love the shoes.
