I was laying in bed this morning thinking that I really didn't want to get up yet and my house started to shake!  Anyone else from Utah that felt it?  I live in western Davis county and immediately knew that it was more than F-16's rattling the house (we live west of an air force base).  Luckily, it was short and non destructive here.  Apparently the earthquake was 6.3 and centered in Wells, Nevada just to the west of us.  What a reminder that Utah is earthquake territory!  I think you get complacent after a while and you always think it won't happen here, but I'm sure we're due for something big!  Eery!

Here is a freebie for you:


The file size is a  little large on this one, but it has glitter and I just couldn't resist!

Download expired.

Also, the sale on my double templates won't last much longer.

And, my sister had this on her blog and it's just to good to pass up!  I love watching "The Office" when it's not crude.


Thanks for the comments!

Wow, never been in an Earthquake, at least that I could feel. Thanks for the templates. Left you some love over at DST ISO thread. :)

Sharon Kay said...

It's been since 2nd to 5th grade since I lived in earthquake territory and I can still remember it! Glad you are safe.

Love this! Thanks...glitter and all!

Glad to hear you are safe! :D This template looks great - thank you! will try to download it later today right now it's telling me it will take 5 hrs to download. I know it's not that big lol

Andrea said...

Wow, 5 hours? It's 17 MB which isn't terribly big.

great template, and funny clip. thanks for sharing both. i grew up in san diego, so i guess earthquakes don't shock me much. i've never had an actual earthquake wake me up - a sister freaking out in her doorway, yes; an earthquake, no.

glad everything was ok for you, i know utah is not as used to (therefor not prepared like SD for) earthquakes. hopefully the government will start doing something about that. i scrambled home one day after seeing on the news about one there with a mine collapsing, had to call my friend there.

Great template - love the stars! Thank you!

Yohandy said...

Thank you so much for all your wonderful templates. :-)

Myxi said...

Scaaaaaarrry......I don't wanna live where the ground shakes, or swallows up stuff. If a hurrican is coming at us, I can run away from, but not an earthquake.
Thank you for the woooooonderful template, it is awesome. It is so worth the big file size, it's purrrdy! I'm actually gonna do the template challenge at GDS. I've got my pictures all picked out, now I just gotta find just the right kit to fill it up with. :)

Whitney said...

I didn't feel the earthquake, although many our (Logan)area did. Thanks so much for this template. I always enjoy your templates. You are very talented!
Thanks again!

Nikki said...

Thank you for the great template, Andrea!

I live in Provo and I didn't feel a thing.

Glad the quake didn't leave you shakin' in your boots this morning (read about it online.)

Thanks for another great template, Andrea. You're still the best!

Jeanann said...

Thanks, what a great template! I lived in Tokyo for two years and I know what it's like to feel earthquakes every once in a while.

Didn't feel anything in Orem! Thanks!

Robyn said...

Thank you for the wonderful template as always. Hopefully I'll be able to DL it; been having VERY slow download speeds the last couple of days.

I'm glad the earthquake caused no harm. It reminded me of that mine collapse where some said it was an earthquake and others said it was because of faulty mining practices. Makes you wonder.

Thanks again. :)

Camelia said...

I am glad you are OK.
Thanks so much for the wonderful template.

Danie said...

Gorgeous template - thanks so much for sharing it!

Maria said...

TYVM :)~

Mallory Black said...

Hey thanks for the templates! This is so random, I just read in your blog that you live in west davis county, and I live in Syracuse Utah! Ha. What a small world it is!

Bonnie said...

I am glad you are ok after your earthquake. I have never been in one before and I am 100% ok with that. I lived through a few hurricanes when I lived in Florida, but now I am in Texas and I only have to worry about severe thunder storms, flooding, and tornadoes.

I love this template. Thanks for sharing it. Anything with stars is a hit with me, I bought all of your stars galore brag books and other star templates. Thanks for all you do. Kiss that baby of yours from all of us.

karen said...

Thanks for the template.
I didn't realize that Utah was earthquake territory... I've never experienced one here in BC.

vana said...

Earthquakes - wow! Glad to hear everyone is safe.

Love stars! Thank you for the fab template. :)

Thanks for the template. Glad you were fun in the earthquake. I'm having problems getting it to download while the website is still open. I have to click on link then close the website and then it will download. Not sure if why.

stiffianie said...

As always thanks for yet another great template. It's crazy about the earthquake. Just a little north in Weber county we didn't feel a thing. So bizarre that you can feel it in one place and not to far away not even know something happened.

Cami said...

You must live close by. I live in Clinton but I didn't notice it, but then again, I probably would have just thought it was from that huge grey plane they fly around all the time.

Andrea said...

Hey, I know that huge gray plane...the one that makes your windows rattle and if you're talking on the phone you have to say..."Just a minute!" LOL!

Mady said...

Merci encore un magnifique template

eb2177 said...

That clip is so funny! Thanks for sharing it. I'm so sad that I missed the template! It looks great! Glad that you and yours are all alright after the shaking. :o)

My Little Ironies

  • 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?
