Thank you for these wonderful resources. Just one little hiccup, though: I am unable to view or download anything from the second link.

Is there something I need to be able to do that?

Thanks again!

Hey Janey,

Just clicked on the link you reposted, as well as the same one given in the top post of this thread – and the correct file immediately downloaded in both cases.

So not sure why you're having any difficulty... Try with a different browser and/or computer.

Glad you like them!

I tried clicking on the link. A new window opened, as with the other links, but nothing was there. I left it alone a while in case it just hadn't finished loading, but nothing ever showed up. I tried refreshing the new page and this page, but still no luck. I only have access to this one computer (MacBook Pro) and have only used Safari.

Well, it's always good to have a second browser available on your desktop, like Firefox (or Chrome).

However, note that file is not a PDF. It's an Illustrator file. It won't come up in a browser window. So check your Downloads folder for file a called Creative Aid Art 2.ai instead.

If not, then try right-clicking on the link, and then choose "Download as ..." or "Download Linked File" from the right-click menu.

In any event, that's an extra (side) asset and is not essential to the rest.
