    Nice ideas. These ideas are great for Pinkalicious and Barbie parties.

    To see the pictures larger, I click 'print' and then copy the page to a Word document. Then, by clicking inside the picture, I get an outline with small circles in the corners. By clicking and holding down the left-hand mouse button on one of those circles, I can pull the dot outside the frame to make the picture bigger or inside to make it smaller. Sometimes the picture gets fuzzy if you make it too big but it usually works.

    I totally agree. While the site is full of wonderful ideas and recipes, the tiny pics provided make it almost impossible to see any detail. Please MS staff, help us out here! Maybe it would be better gotten across if we sent emails to the "contact us" link at the bottom of these pages, friends.
