I'm thinking this conversation should be private between the two of you, perhaps via email?

This is not a private conversation. Do you help people via email? Maybe it should be moved to Customization

That would be fine too. It doesn't matter to me at all.

Here you go download and open the zip folder and open the folder inside of it and put the two in C/Windows/Resources/Themes
It will show up in the Personalization as Rose1Custom5

Look at the screenshot it tells you what & where to put them. There is 1 Rose1Custom5 theme folder & 1 Rose1Custom5.theme file put both in C/Windows/Resources/Themes
Then Go to Personalization & click on Rose1Custom5
