MTC/SVG Monday

I've been slacking a bit on my every Monday getting a file out. This summer has not been much fun. Things are slowly settling down but still lots going on. Since my external hard Drive is still waiting to be fixed :(  which holds all my files and my other computer crashed and no longer has all my files. I've had to start from scratch. I am lucky that I have many older files stored online, the ones I have for sale. In any case, I have been playing around a bit in MTC and one set of files I have been dilagently working on still needs work they are being lil buggers but Since I just LOVE halloween I found some great Disney Images for you. These images are copyright and owned by Disney, I just simply colored them and made cut files out of them but Disney is the sole ownership of the original images.  If you do open the MTC files you will need to have the updated version of MTC, I must have opened them to check them and saved them in the newer version. I usually double check the files are complete and ready to share before uploading. I have the info below of the Updated version below. If you have SCAL or use the SVG files you won't need to worry.
