Valerie said...

You're welcome everyone! You all deserve them!

Kelly, right click on the award and choose "save as" to save the picture and to copy the text, highlight it all, then press CTRL+C if you have a mac, (I'm not sure what you push instead of CTRL, I think it might be that squiggly thing) to copy and then in your own blog post hit CTRL+V or right click in the text area and choose paste and that will paste the text for you. Hope that helps!

Kelly said...

*sigh*. Valerie, thanks for the instructions. You must think me terribly stupid, but it just isn't working. Not sure why, but it seems to copy, but then when I right click in my blog, the paste is darkened out, and when I go to Edit/Paste, it does nothing. It must be the settings in my computer or something. I just don't know. But thanks for taking the time to try and help me! Now I see why you get so many awards :)
