Quick Page Zip Files Fixed

Okay, ya'll! I think I've got the quickpage downloads fixed. Feel free to give them a try and let me know if you still get errors when unzipping. If it's not working, I will then be forced to go insane! ; ) Click on the previews to download. I think the original zipped files worked for some of you, if it did, there is no need to download again, unless you'd really like to!

I'd appreciate any feedback so I know that things are all in order now! Thanks and have a great weekend and once again, so sorry for the craziness! Check back next week for 3 new layouts which also means 3 new quickpages!

Sweet Flora QP

**For those of you who have had a hard time unzipping my Sweet Flora QP, try downloading this file here and see if you can unzip this one. I think I may have figured out the problem. Let me know if it works or doesn't work for you. Also, if there are other QP's of mine that you haven't been able to unzip, holler and I'll see what I can do. I'm so sorry for that! This whole zipping files is so insane to me! But, like I said, I think I have it fixed! Thanks for being so patient.**

**Someone mentioned that they weren't able to open the file. I've looked at it and it appears to be fine. Once you've unzipped it, will you leave a comment and let me know if you were able to open it? Thanks a bunch!

Here's another quickpage made from the kit Sweet Flora/Digi-Designs by Nicole & Vicki A Work in Progress. Enjoy!

YMCA Collab Charity Kit

Steph over at Scrappy Cocoa has teamed up with some marvelous women who have made this fabulous kit, YMCA.

The YMCA runs a annual fundraiser called Partners With Youth (PWY) every February. There goal this year is to earn $198,000. PWY funds programs for homeless youth, such as a weekend program where the kids can come in and shower, shave, get some clean clothes and just hang out. PWY also funds scholarships for low income families so they can send their kids to summer camp, retreats and even for YMCA memberships. They also have a new program that is an intervention for obese kids. The PWY fundraising campaign is run 100% by volunteers, so .95 of every dollar goes straight to the programs. You can choose to donate monthly (ei $10 a month) or a one time donation. Please join us in donating to this wonderful program! Thanks!

The YMCA kit is by donation and no donation is too small. You can donate via the paypal on Scrappy Cocoa's Blog, click here to run over to her blog. Or, you can fill out the pledge sheet which is included in the download and email it back to Steph to just get billed.

Here's a preview of this fun and bright kit:
