Sweet as you card (Time for Tea Designs image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

The lovely Jo at Time for Tea Designs was so generous to give me this gorgeous image to play with. I loved colouring her up so much that I ended up making 2 cards with her (I have just posted the other one). This image is called Cute Girl and you can find her HERE (or click on their name above to go to the homepage). I cropped the image this time for a different version of the image and added a gorgeous sentiment from Sweet & Sassy Stamps. I gave her a spotty dress just using a darker copic marker. If you use a T4Tea Designs image you can also join in Jo's challenges at Time for Tea Designs.

I have a query I'm hoping one of you can help me with. When I upload my entry using the blue frog I paste my blog post URL in, then it automatically comes up with the link title (ie Lucy loves scrapping: Sweet as you card...). I just want my name (Lucy Patrick) under my photo in the challenges, does anyone know how to change the settings? It has only been doing this for the past month or so but I'm finding it very time-consuming to change each time.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
