My laptop crashed (and some layouts)

I truly am obsessive backup girl. People (you know who you are) make fun of me because I am REALLY obsessive about it. HA! I have been vindicated! I lost my hard drive (actually I somehow lost the segment of my hard drive that contained the operating system) last Thursday and the ONLY items I didn’t have backed up were a couple layouts I had done between my Sunday backup and the crash. My super techno geeky husband was able to access those files through the DOS prompt and copy them over to my EHD, so I ended up losing nothing!

But…the saga continues. Not only was the hard drive shot, but the little connector thingy between the hard drive and the motherboard also needed to be replaced. This cheap but hard to come by wire thing had to be ordered from Dell and I got it yesterday, so I’m cookin’ with gas (BTW – I ADORE my laptop – a Dell Studio 1737 with a giant honkin’ screen and there is no way I wanted a new one. I know. Who am I and what have I done with Tracy?).

So anyhoo – here are a few layouts that I meant to post last week, plus one I did last night. As always, linked credits under each!

Enjoy!!

Off to drag out the external hard drive here. I'm glad it worked out......love the layout with the dogs--not sure why- color maybe?

“I truly am obsessive backup girl.” – Well, there is nothing wrong in having some back-up. In my opinion, back-ups are lifesavers. :-) But I’m sorry to hear about your laptop. Good thing your hubby knows how to retrieve all your data and files, so you didn’t lose anything in the end! That was a nice save – literally and figuratively. [Ruby Badcoe]
