I just purchased and downloaded this booklet. When I opened it and tried to print many of the backgrounds that were white in the sample are now black and printed black so information on the pages is lost or appears as just a black piece of paper. I was hoping to use this tomorrow so please let me know what to do. Thanks, Christin
