I know that some of you have told me that the paypal button does not work, and some of you have had no trouble, i'm not sure why it's inconsistent, i've redone the code a few times... If all else fails you can donate to my paypal address which is madam_diva ( a t ) yahoo ( d o t ) com - also to those people who donated this week... THANK YOU SO MUCH.
This has been quite a week. Artoo went in for his procedure, finally, but we ended up staying in the hostpital for 3 days on antibiotics.
He sure doesn't care for doctors or nurses or anyone he doesn't know looking at him or touching him... and who could blame him.

Seeing as we only got out of the hospital on Saturday, Easter was pretty low key at our place. Also, seeing as our backyard is still under about forty feet of snow, the Easter Bunny had to leave the treats in the house.
The E.B. did not disappoint, and Chewie and Artoo received "The Rise of the Guardians", which fittingly is about the Easter Bunny.

It was a good day.
Weekly Challenge #112: UMT v. XV "Tuxedo"
As many of you know, the first Monday of every month is a UMT challenge (or Use My Tangle).
The challenge is to learn and use one of the tangles created by YOU. (if you have a tangle you'd like to submit, please read the guidelines here)
This week's challenge is to try a tangle created by LeeAnn, a.k.a Ledenzer, called "Tuxedo" Follow this LINK to find the instructions for this tangle.
Here's my submission:

OH! and before i go, i wanted to say that i'm trying something out for my lovely challenge participants who do not have a blog. lately, it's been tricky for me to keep track of those submissions that are sent in by email, as they've been getting "lost" among my personal emails. So. I'm trying out a new email account that will only be used for weekly challenge submissions. If you'd like to submit by email, please send your files to weeklychallenge(at)mail(dot)com while i'm testing it out, i will send you a confirmation email saying i've received your submission. If it turns out that this works, we'll move to this system in a more permanent way.
Thanks in advance.
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here)
Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will post it here. (please email to weeklychallenge(at)mail(dot)com). I just ask that you put in the subject line: Challenge # ________
The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine.
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
