Well, I was going to post this freebie earlier this evening, but we had a colored pencil emergency. My son was doing his homework and informed me that he had to have colored pencils to finish it! Because he can't find any part of the numberless sets we have owned in the past, I had to run to the store! Why couldn't we have picked them up on the way home from getting the stitches out??? As I inform him every time, I told him not to lose these ones...famous last words! Haha! :) Here is the freebie though:

Download expired.

Here are some layouts I have received...and yes, I have had some of them for a while!

Oh yes I know about the color pencil emergency except around here it usually happens around 11:30 pm. So about two years ago I started collecting all the random partial boxes everyone brought home at the middle and end of the school year and now we have a BIG Zip lock bag in the "School supply cupboard" no more trips to Wall mart at midnight!! Great Template and thanks!!!

Oh my, the memories of the pencils, paints, and everything else. I just had to smile.

Stop by to say hi, and found that great surprise. I changed the time that I visit your blog. Love the various shapes used on the template for the photo cluster. I can only stay a while, recuperating from outpatient surgery. They had to insert a port-a-cath for my continuance of Oncology treatments. So I still feel the effects of the meds. I am so sleepy that I have to keep moving my head. So, back to bed I go. Just Leavin LUV!!

Thanks so much for the great template and sorry so much for the last minute errand. :) Kids tend to remember things when it's not exactly the best moment. LOL

Thanks so much for it, and glad to hear your son is better and without stitches. :)

Best wishes. :O)

thanks much for the new template. I have to laugh when I read your blog - when my oldest son was little, we knew everyone in the emergency room on a first-name basis! I think he was proud of the stitches & bandages! We both survived it - and he outgrew it while I still had hair. LOL!

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?

  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.

  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
