I apologize...unfortunately last year I was asked to remove the product by TpT saying it violated copyrighted Dr. SEUSS materials. Many of us were asked to remove the Dr. SEUSS products...but some sellers haven't been told to do so yet.

Hi Jessica,
So this is a very simple writing activity where students can turn the picture of the peep into something else...for instance, some of my students last year turned it into a butterfly or even a big nose on a puppy. They just create a drawing with the peep integrated in... :) Hope that helps!

The last time a user had this issue it was because they needed to update their Adobe reader. I just checked the file and had a friend try downloading and printing. It worked perfectly. If this continues to be an issue for you, please contact customer support/tech support. Thank you for asking me first.

What did you use for the bubble in the students final writing? Our school is latex free and I'm having trouble finding latex free balloons. Thought you might have a suggestion. Thanks!

If you can't use balloons you could try blowing up small plastic bags. I did that once!

I purchased the brag bracelets and downloaded them to my computer. I printed right from my download folder with no problem. When I went to save them I was given an I/O error message. My husband tells me this is an adobe message something in the link from the PDF file. I then deleted it and re-downloaded hoping that would fix the problem. It did not. Has anyone else had this problem? I love the product but I would like to be able to save it to my drive so I can use it more than once.

I have not heard of this issue before...but, let me open it up and try resaving it as a different version of PDF. I will re-upload and you will need to redownload it. Give me about 10 minutes. Sorry it's doing that for you! Not sure what the issue is, as i have had others purchase and download/save just fine. Taking care of it now. Please email me if it still doesn't save for you and I'll be happy to try another way! mariecote123@gmail.com

Buyer re: Digital Papers: Lovely Day in Purple {for commercial use} ***FREEBIE***
I also am only able to save these as a picture. I am unable to find an option to save them as PDF as recommended in your terms of use. This is my first attempt at saving a background to create neat looking worksheets, I would appreciate a little help explaining how I get them into PDF? Thank you much :)
March 13, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
The Hands On Teacher in First
No problem! You will just save them as a "picture" in your pictures file on your computer. Then, when you create something with them, you will need to click INSERT, and then PICTURE. Find the picture file that you saved it as, and then insert. As for the Terms of USE for PDF, it just means that if you are creating something to share or sell, you need to be sure you are only giving/selling a PDF or other secure type so that other people cannot copy my work from your work. Hope that makes sense! :)

I don't know how to use these. They save in my picture folder as a jpeg. So, then how do I use them? What am I doing wrong? How do people use them? I would like to use them as borders or backgrounds...how do I "insert" them, like I would clip art? Can you tell I'm an old dog trying to learn new tricks? :)
March 11, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
The Hands On Teacher in First
Once you have saved them as a JPEG, you can insert them as a "picture" in WORD or PowerPOINT, or other programs. You can then resize them for whatever size you would like. Just click INSERT, then PICTURE. Find where you saved the file, and click insert. :)
Hope this is helpful!
