    Great work! Although on the second spread with earth, air, fire, water I think the fire/water headers are mixed up!! Great gift ideas though :)

    It is—thanks. That's what I get for working on this on zero sleep! A revised guide will be uploaded shortly.

    strangely not working for me on firefox 8.0, Mac os 10.5.8. Bummer!
  8. Courtney says:

    Hi Adrianna. Are you getting an error message? Or is it just not showing up? Let me know so I can try to fix the problem. I'm thinking this must be an Issuu problem though so I'm not sure if I'll be able to fix.
