Scribus doesn't actually save graphics as part of the .sla file.  It
merely saves a kind of "pointer" to the graphic.

Therefore, if you put a graphic into your document, save it, and then
subsequently move the original graphic elsewhere or delete it (remove the
clip art CD from your drive, delete the picture from your downloads
directory, what-have-you) the picture disappears.

The solution is to insure that your graphics are actually resident on
your hard drive when you use them.
