Jolly Old St. Nick

I can't believe this! The 1 time I am out of town and I have a post scheduled to go live on a certain day, Blogger gets messed up! From time to time, I hear some of the Designers on some of my blogs  having trouble with this, but I have never had a problem so I expected it to all be completely fine. Its always alright. When you camp in the middle of nowhere, in a trailer, you have no internet, cell service, technology of any kind, and it is so peaceful. I loved it......till I got home and went onto here!! Seeing that my post had not gone live Tuesday morning, as it was scheduled to, was extremely depressing :(
Thanks a lot blogger, not only did this month's technique cost me money again, your foul up cost me other problems too.

Its the first Tuesday of the month, and that means its time for a new challenge at Technique Time Tuesday. This month is "Smackin' Acetate", chosen by Karen Hill. Mynnette has again put together a fabulous tutorial to help you along with this.

Here is the card I made for the August Technique:
