    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home is a lovely cottage retreat for Henry and his baby sister Evangeline. This cozy little home is decorated throughout with several of Henry's hand-crafted items including the mahogany bathtub, mirror, heart wall hangings, and numerous statues throughout. To keep little Evangeline safe, Henry has a dedicated workspace in his room -- away from tiny hands. Evangeline's room is a calming shade of pink and adorned with bunnies to match her favorite stuffed animal. Outside is a cozy seating area under the cover of a gnarled oak tree, complete with a fire pit to share stories and roast marshmallows and an area for gardening in the backyard.

    A very beautiful English/Scottish Cottage @kezflake. @VanillaChai, you and I had the same idea, but I love your landscaping it really suites the cottage. Just love both these builds. <3<3:)
    p.s very clever to use debug, I was not aware that it transfers with the download. I will definitely make use of it next time round.

    Thank you @Issabella14 :) . I too was unaware of buy debug being transferable I so hope this really works as will be filling my lots with this from now on. Loving the landscaping on both your lots @vanillachai and Issabella14 and even thought they are similar in style they are both quite distinct inside and out.

    Question:
    If I have paintings my Sim made how do I place them in my new lot, with out playing the lot?
    Because if I play the lot then the lot value will reduce and not be the true cost.

    We recommend placing paintings and such at the end of your build so that you can keep an eye on the total lot cost prior to playing the game. Hope this helps.

    Thanks @Issabella14 and @kezflake for the kind words. Both of you have such lovely entries. :)
    As for the debug cheat... I'm so glad that the items transfer over! It's a great tool to add some extra life into the builds.
    Thanks @bouquetcatcher. You still have time to join in, if you'd like!

    @BuildnShare, I know that the slide show it becoming a problem. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I re-arrange the slide show as it should be, but photobucket UN-arranges it, I don't know why. It did it again to the new entry. I had to relink the slide show. Do you have any suggestions on what to do with this matter.

    @Issabella14 I always make sure all pics are uploaded first, then I rearrange very slowly making sure each pic is saved before moving the next. Sometimes the save sticks so I exit Photobucket and then go back in and continue :)

    Thanks for the help @masajo. I have never done it that way, I am still very new to photobucket, but you are never to old to learn. Thanks again. :)

    @Issabella14 - So far, I haven't had any issues *knock on wood* with mine. I go through after uploading them all and change the titles to numbers in the order that I want them displayed. Then, in the album, set the display option to order them by title. That seems to be the only way that works for me.

    @vanillaChai, that is exactly how I do mine and it always seemed to work. I always number my pictures before uploading to photobucket, and then I select filename, but lately it somehow just changes to newest first all on its own. It is really strange, but I will be keeping my eye on this from now on ;)

    @bouquetcatcher I second @VanillaChai there is still time to enter, thought I know how RL can takeover, pesky RL getting in the way of our building time.

    @issabella14 i just noticed you used the same window as I have in your lot, wasn't sure if I was mad using something that was supposed to be from a jail cell. Glad someone else also saw the potential of these interesting little windows too.

    @issabella14 check your settings in Photobucket. Hover over your aviator and select settings. Then select Albums tab. The first option is Thumbnail Settings check to see if it is set to alphabetical by file name.
