I have to tease my husband here a bit! He goes to work every day and I stay home with the kids! He dresses in really nice casual clothing for work. The funny thing is that when he is home and working on projects he wears these pants that have been around forever and they have more holes than I can count! The other day, he was working on putting some shelves up for me and he said he had to go to the store to get hooks for them and I freaked out and asked him if he was going to wear those pants to the store...yes, you can see his underwear through the holes! He laughed and said they were his work pants and no one cares anyway. Now, they have been dubbed the "pirate pants" and there's no way to get him NOT to wear them while he is doing projects unless they mysteriously disappear (hmmm...!) I'm glad that life offers laughs to keep us going!

I've started a new template challenge at GDS. It will go until Feb. 27. I'm offering a double template for the challenge. You can get side A now and side B will be the prize for participating! Here are some previews:

So nice to visit you today. This is my first day of feeling better since discharge on Saturday. So wonderful to see the lovely 2-page template and its associated challenge. I will try my best to meet the deadline, not to win a prize, but just to join in the fun of scrapping your wonderful template. Thanks! Leavin LUV! XOXOXO

Looks like fun. I needed something to motive me to work again after spending two weeks getting digi stuff organized.

This is my first time ever doing a challenge, and I hope this doesn't sound dumb, but I have a question. Do you have to use the template as it is exactly, or can you change/remove some of the elements?
I was wondering if I could move some stuff around on the template, and nix the flowers. I love the template as is, don't get me wrong, but with three boys, I don't use flowers very often in my LOs. Like, I said it's my first time, so I guess I just need a bit more info. Thanks so much! And I really do love this and all your templates!

Andrea said...

Yes Sandy! With any of my templates you can replace whatever you want. The stars, flowers etc. are meant to be used as is or as an example of where you could put something from a kit!! :)
