This Little Piggy

I am not a happy bunny ... my hard drive seems to have died.  It is a month or two five since I did a full backup (oops!) and I have spent the last few days laboriously copying files and folders from my almost unreadable hard drive to safety!  Thank goodness Hubby knows a thing or two five million about computers!  While I wait for a full replacement and restore I shan't be blog-(hopp)-ing quite as much as usual because my bookmarks, contacts, passwords etc are still in limbo.

Luckily I have some posts pre-scheduled, a Counterfeit Kit for May to put together and one last page from April's Kit to share with you.

Layout - This little Piggy - Jimjams

Layout detail - hidden tag - Jimjams I had made the page for the sketch challenge over at Sarah's Cards, but thanks to my IT problems I've missed the deadline.  Not to worry though as that brings my total for April's Counterfeit Kit to a record-breaking (for me at least) NINE pages!

This little Piggy belongs to No.1 Son and there's a piggy tail tale hidden on the tag. If you want to know what's written there you'll have to pop back on May 6th when I'll be joining in with Si├ón's Storytelling Sundays again.  Have you got a story to tell?  Why not join us?!

Oh no! I hope you are up at running at your computer again soon. Love that photo, such a great page!

Oh my heart breaks for you and your hard drive. My cell phone is dying on me and I had no idea how hard it would be to replace a non-smart phone. We are slaves to our technology, aren't we. Cute page, I need to get mine finished for Sunday too.

Oh, I hope you are able to recover everything! I'm curious about your cute little pig......

I'm lucky hubby is obsessed about backing up, but oh I so feel for you. Loving this layout

Oh, no! That's a very timely reminder to me to do a back up. I hope you get it all sorted out soon. And of course I am delighted that it won't affect your appearance on Sunday :)

I hate it when that happens! It seems far too common.

I do hope you can save it all.

I'm hoping that spam email didn't contribute to the hard drive demise! Great LO, and looking forward to the story!

Hard drive failure is what got us to swap to online continuous back up. Although these days we have on site (TimeMachine), off site (Mozy) and I upload photos including digit and photographed layouts to Flickr. Belts and braces...

Oh and I like dropbox for important files as it stores them on more than one computer - so all the work ones are there too.
