Don’t know what to title this blog post

You know, I have spent two weeks dealing with PayPal due to someone hacking my account…used my e-bay account to order 4 cameras and sent to New Jersey shipping address….and PayPal expects me to pay back the negative balance in my account…expect me to be a fool to pay for something I did not order.

Than just shortly I was going thru the Creative Cutter’s blog and downloading files I would like to try for my personal use, and low and behold,  I find a cut file similar to one I created and offered as a freebie on my blog on February 21, 2011…similar in style and color.  Looks like the oval ones was re-tweaked, and both oval and scalloped ovals offered as freebies on their blog…

Now, back than, I was not watermarking mine or adding a TOU with my files, but have since started because of selling my files in a couple stores.  And I do have an account with MyCopyRight now, which will not do any good with these  particular file(s).  Just lettin u all know….

So here’s a copy of my TOU for your information:
