How many of you are tired of Easter candy?  We went out of town for Easter and had a really fun time at my husband's parents home.  They had a fun Easter egg hunt for the grand kids and our kids got to see their cousins.  They also ate lots of sugar and candy which always happens every year and I guess I forget or something because it occurs to me all of the sudden that they are going crazy with so much candy in their systems!  By the time we got home last night, my 8 year old daughter was just in tears over nothing and I'm sure it was sugar let down!  I usually favor the idea of letting them eat how ever much they want for a day and then the rest goes in the garbage. 

If you haven't purchased enough to get the free collab kit every month or haven't participated in the quick page exchange yet, the page above should be reason enough!  It's gorgeous along with the many other pages we all got for participating.  I'm amazed at the quality of all the pages!  What talented scrappers we have at GDS!


I now have commercial use licenses for all of my templates...single, double, sets...all of them!  If you go to my store, you can select personal or commercial use right when you purchase the templates!  No more hassles with email me or trying to find the commercial licenses!    It's very easy to get what you want!  My commercial licenses cover scrap for hire and quick page use.


I have a free template for you.  It's a double template!  I'm giving out side A today and side B in a day or'll have to check back so you don't miss it!


I'm going to keep you in suspense about the other side!!!!

Thanks for the comments!  I really enjoy reading them!

Thank you for another great gift.

Wow, you are courageous to let your kids have free reign over the candy for a day. My daughter (3yrs) only got one piece of candy after dinner, then we hid the rest and she forgot about it. I just can't deal with the meltdowns after the sugar wears off. Thanks for the great template and I'm glad you had a Happy Easter with your family!

Oh what a beautiful template, can hardly wait to see the other side of it. Kids and candy, such fun, when the sugar runs out, hopefully so will they, before they have driven the parents crazy. Thank you for this very pretty gift.

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?
  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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?
