DigitalArts-cafe Boutique Down =(

The boutique at DigitalArts-cafe is down at the moment. Some hackers have broken into the boutique and changed settings to show their page instead of the boutique.

Melo is working on fixing the problem, but we don't know how long it will take. I'll keep you posted, and let you know when everything is resolved.

I just don't get some people. It just seems completely pointless to me.

So who are the lucky ones?

Today is the big day for the draw for my birthday RAK! Well I'm a day late, but I've not had much computer time with Wy Wy teething - my little cutie has cut 5 teeth in the past 3 days!

So, I guess you're wondering who the winners of their kit of choice are? Well I put the number of comments into the integer generator at Random.org and drew three numbers. Here are the results!

Congrats to Trac, Elaine and Candi (So~Inkin~Cute)! Send me an email to: karyn [dot] a [dot] robinson [at] gmail [dot] com and I will get your kits to you!

Thanks everyone for playing along and for all the sweet birthday wishes *hugs*!

Surprise!!! Who wants a RAK?

Well I said I would be back with a little surprise for you... So here it is...

I've received such nice things for my birthday, and I want to share the love! I'm thinking in the form of a RAK for some lucky people!

So here's the deal... head on over to my shop and do a little window shopping... then come back here and post a comment with which kit you would like. On Friday, 12 June I will pop the number of comments into a random integer generator and will draw three lucky numbers who will then get the kit of their choice from my shop! (please note that the VIP Lounge kit cannot be chosen).

So what are you waiting for... get window shopping!Photobucket

It's my BIRTHDAY!!

Yay! It's my birthday today! So far has been a great day, Ian and the boys brought me coffee and presents in bed this morning, and Ian did the school run for me. I love my presents! Ian got me The CS4 Master Collection, and 2 gigs of RAM for my PC so that I can run it! The boys got me the brand new Anita Blake Vampire Hunter novel by Laurell K Hamilton, Skin Trade and some cute Me-to-You tatty teddy car excessories for my 20 year old Mazda 323 (yeah my car is ancient, think mutton dressed as lamb with the new bling lol).

It may be my birthday, but I have a gift for you!! I made the Sunny with a Chance layout that I posted a few days ago of Wyatt's little tootsies into a quick page =)

Oh, and more good news... no more 4shared downloads from me! Clicking on the preview will download the quick page directly (my present to myself this year was a domain name and web hosting!!)

Enjoy, and I will be back later with another little surprise for you!!
