OK Rob - I've written your name in the claim list - fortunately no one else has picked it up overnight - I was asleep when you preclaimed.

I'll add it later.

Here is the cover for What Happened Then Stories

Please let me know if anything is missing/wrong. Thanks!
A couple of things - did you preclaim this ? I'm trying to work out why someone else has claimed it from the claims list as they don't appear on that list until after they are catalogued.
I've contacted the person claiming it - and while I wait for him to answer, I do need to know the source of the image you have used.

Hi Anne!

I did preclaim it a while ago(at least I thought I did)...the project took longer to finish than expected.

Here is the source of the image that I edited:

Yes, you did preclaim in April - looks like I missed it, it got caught up in a conversation. Schrm was willing to surrender his claim so I'll get it linked
Please be very careful using Pixabay - yes the photography is PD but once you start using people or man-made objects problems can arise. I have no idea who made the ornament - it is quite distinctive, someone designed it sometime and as Pixabay says in the fine print, such things can attract copyright but I'll accept it this time, it hard to tell exactly but it does look a bit like a mass produce tree ornament.

Thank you and I will be mindful of that for future covers!

Done
I'd been looking at it too - I've claimed it but think it will probably end up with a very basic cover.
I'll sleep on it

I'd like to pre-claim the CD cover for my solo project viewtopic.php?f=12&t=81618
I usually leave making covers to others and forgot the process -- where are the instructions? :help:
Thank you!

preclaim made'
The instructions are in the first post - if you have any questions there is a link there to what we call the Covermakers Chat thread - it's separate so we don't miss actual "work" posts
The difficulty I have with Russian and other non-roman alphabets is that many ofthe interesting fonts do not have the characters and that I can't type the characters either - I usually copy and paste. And there are times when I am unable to find out what it is about - all I could find out about Agrifina was about a storyteller on the shores of the Baltic. Sometimes BC help by putting a litttle bit of information in English in the summary :D

Oh, thank you, Anne, I will provide more info in future! Let me do Agrafena (by Zaytsev), I have an idea what should be there. I am just not very good with PhotoShop, but I could manage :-)
