before the upgrade, it's in your applications folder, but I suspect it's a bit late to be telling you this now :eek:

Try going to the App store and clicking on purchased and see if you can click on install again? The MBP I'm on right now has SL, so I can download it again, but I'm not sure if the MBP with Lion on it will let me do that.
