Simone, you are too sweet! Thank you so much for that high compliment - so undeserving! I'm utterly flattered and humbled!! Oh, and thanks for liking the new pic (I so hate taking pictures!) ;P

Simone, thank you so much for your sweet comments and continued encouragement and support. It's so awesome to get feedback from such talented peers, as yourself! I really appreciate it! Thanks so much for your feedback on my website, too! Such great info about the affiliate program and creating custom links. My site was down for almost 2 weeks (right after it went live) so I haven't been able to work on the links, yet, but I will definitely get to it. Thanks so much, again! I'm loving your banner designs, btw - along with all your other great work! Super job! Best of luck in all the challenges! Always look forward to seeing your work! :)

Haha! Don't even sweat it Simone! I would never think you stole anything. The font Cyclone isn't exactly a well guarded secret on here anyways. Everyone uses that one. My design is all about that center illustration anyways. :) You got some cool stuff in for this challenge! Hopefully we don't have to wait until next year for the results! ;)

Thanks Simone, I decided to make the almond chocolate oval too, to match the shape of the almond.

Ich möchte unbedingt mal nach San Francisco und dann die Küste runter fahren nach Los Angeles. Also wer weiß, vielleicht besuche ich Dich wirklich mal :-) Ich würde gerne mal Deine Geschichte hören, wie es Dir so ging am Anfang in den USA. Außerdem scheint Dein Leben sehr spannend zu sein, ich habe mir Deine tollen Fotos auf facebook angesehen :-) LG Petra

Hallo Simone, vielen Dank für Deine Nachricht :-) Deine Designs waren mir auch schon sehr positiv aufgefallen, ich finde sie ganz toll. Ich beneide Dich um Santa Monica, hier bei uns ist es so kalt und nass, ich wünschte ich wäre auch in Kalifornien :-). Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland Petra

Thanks for the heads up Simone! I emailed Minted too, so we'll see what happens. It's unfortunate tho that things like this still pop up from time to time.

Thanks so much for the comment Simone! I just hopped over to your site and I had to come tell you I love your designs. I love vintage travel & advertising, so you had me with that...your poster designs are fabulous, and such a great idea! But passports, boarding passes, luggage tags ...how clever is that? Wow, love it. I'm pretty new here myself, but I'm happy to be the first to welcome you to Minted!
