I have to give out a big thank you to Kelly and Happy Scrap Girl who let me know that one of my templates was being pirated on myspace for a challenge! I just think that's unfortunate because I'm glad to keep a freebie up longer if you are using them for challenges! Just let me know. There's no reason for piracy, especially since the template was still active on my blog. I just about posted the link here on my blog so all of you with myspace accounts could go and make comments to the pirate because I have so many loyal blog readers. But, I'm a believer in karma, and bad things (especially piracy) always come back to you! :)

I'm running a sale on my double template sets! They are all 30% off! You can find them here! Here are some previews (there are 15 sets on sale!):

I'm sorry to hear that you've been pirated. I totally don't get that, especially if it was still available for them. I agree with you on the karma issue. They'll get theirs.

I love your templates. I'm building my whole Christmas album with em since I goofed and got 8X11 shutterfly albums. Thank you so much for offering the landscape ones. I'd be lost without em.

Thanks so much! Sorry to hear about the pirates getting your template. I don't know if the problem is worse or if we're just hearing more about it lately. It's a shame some people just can't follow the rules!

Thanks Andrea! Sorry about the pirates. I guess I don't understand the whole pirate thing- why steal something you have up for free? And as for pirating other things, they all get found out, so why risk it? Anyway, I hope you're "pirate-free" now! :)

Melanie aka Mom_of_5 said...

I just don't understand why people do things like that! Anyway, thanks 4 the freebie again!

Trisha said...

thank you!!...sorry to hear about the pirates!

Jeanne said...

I truly appreciate the sharing that you do and am saddened to hear that your template had been pirated. Like others, I do not understand that mentality. I wish everyone would just follow the rules and not make things harder for the rest of the digi community.

Thank you for the wonderful template.

Kelly said...

No problem Andrea =)
And thank you for the great template
*off to scrap*

Robyn said...

As sweet and generous as you are wiht your templates, it's a shame someone's taken advantage of you like that. :(

Thank you for your lovely template. I appreciate it Andrea.:)

What goes round comes round. Might not be today, might not be tomorrow, but eventually it will bite 'em in da butt. When it does, it will be a deep bite, and really hurt. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful templates with us Andrea. :)

Ann said...

Dear Andrea
I am really sorry to hear that you have been pirated. Since I love your templates, I think I will be able to recognize them everywhere, so if I found one of them signed by another person I will suspect, and of course I will tell you.
I am very sorry that these kind of nasty things can happened.
And changing for a better issue, I want to say you that today´s template is, as always, WONDERFUL and the most important thing: thank YOU very much for sharing with all of us.
Hugs
Ann

Thanks for the template. I'm happy to hear that you are still offering freebies inspite of the pirates. ARRRGGH, people who don't play by the rules ruin it for everyone else.

I think you are so lovely Andrea! It is a shame to pirate when you would let anyone use them. Too sad!

Justin and Jessica said...

I am SO stinking excited that you do double page templates! NO ONE does that! I only do two page layouts, I just like the look of it in a book. I haven't ever used a template, but I am always hearing how much people love them! So, I'm totally excited to try one out! Thanks!

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 box...an 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?
  • The root of all toilet clogging evil is apparently a ball point pen and it's nearly impossible to dislodge one of those from the inside of a toilet.
  • You know you have to do some serious laundry when you actually consider wearing your 11 year old daughter's Hannah Montana shirt.
  • My 6 year old daughter got a comb stuck in her hair and we had to cut the comb into little bits to get it out of her hair.
  • My kids keep breaking the toilet seats! I guess I need a bulk package of those too!
  • Chocolate chips are not a food group.
  • My toilet seat says "Hailee" on it!
  • If there's work to be done, all of the kids need to use the bathroom or get a drink.
  • All two-year-olds think the baby swing is for them!
  • When you have 6 kids, carpet is your enemy!
  • You know you have a large family when your grocery receipt is 4 feet long.
  • The toilet is clogged and my husband found a plastic easter egg in the pipe.
  • My daughter just asked me if she can put chocolate sprinkles on here melted cheese sandwich (really???)
  • I burned up another hard drive on my PC! Can I buy a bulk package of those too?
  • Well actually, my sand pile is full of socks and silverware!
  • My sand pile is full of socks!
  • The key to my treadmill is missing again...can I just purchase a bulk package of them???
  • 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.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.
  • My kids are storing a tumble weed in my garage for the winter!
  • My 10 year old son informed me that people have only discovered about half of the world's caves (thank you BBC and planet earth!)
  • My baby's car seat is full of finely crushed graham crackers (?? Little babies don't eat graham crackers)!
  • My husband's shoes are filled with Mr. Potato Head parts!
  • My two year old thinks the new baby swing is for him! He can even climb in by himself and work all the controls. Boy, does he have a rude awakening coming!!
  • I have a giant mud hole in my back yard.
  • My vacuum is fully of plastic easter grass.
  • My kids are too full to finish their dinner, but they have plenty of room left for cake!
  • I have a giant laundry basket full of socks, and we can't find a single match!
  • Miscellaneous items found while cleaning out my kids' toy box include a flashlight, rocks (no suprise), a sea shell (we don't live by the sea), a drill bit, a stapler, and some tree bark!
  • 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.
  • I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
  • We're out of peanut butter because my husband used the rest to catch a mouse in our garage!
  • Yes, my son won 1st place in the science fair at school, but he didn't turn in half of his assignments this term?
  • No matter how many toys my toddler got for Christmas, I still find him in the middle of my kitchen floor sitting in my crock pot!
