Bad Leopard {and a Template FREEBIE!}

{edited to include freebie info only}

Ok, it's time for another freebie! This one is a template that I've been meaning to put together for a long time and I finally found the time to get it done!

The template was inspired by this layout of little boy at the circus. And what's great about this template is you can utilize not only LOTS of pictures and memorialize an entire event in one layout, but you can use some really lousy pictures! The pictures I took here were AWFUL. But I was able to crop just the parts I wanted and they didn't look half bad!

Here's the finished template.

You can DOWNLOAD IT HERE!

Enjoy!
(and, as always, I'd love it if you'd leave a comment if you like the freebie or click on an ad if it catches your eye!!)

Have a GREAT Thursday and I'll see y'all soon!

How sad that she is still frightened when you leave her, hopefully she will get over this soon when she realizes that you aren't going anywhere.

Wow, I love this template. I am a big fan of round things, so it will find lots of use here! Thanks so much.

I'm pretty sure you can't sue Disney, but it sounds like a great idea. I'm so glad we haven't watched that particular movie yet.

Thanks for the freebies.

hope her fear eases up soon, for both your sakes! very cute template.

Heather said...

I am so sorry this movie saga continues for you and your daughter. It almost seems that parents need to preview what their children see for offensive content. Hopefully this fear she has will pass. Thank you for the awesome template. Your work rocks!!

Bless her heart. One of our grandchildren is really scared of Disney movies. I hope she forgets someday.

Thanks so much for the template. Love your work.

Ann said...

Thanks much for the great template, Beth! So sorry she's still scared & hope the memory of it will fade soon. I totally sympathise with the leg-hugging-at-inconvenient-times thing!

nachtstern said...

Thank you for the template!
I will surely find a good use for it *muah*
And sorry to hear you still have that third leg... or should we call it "the wrap around hump".
hope she forgets the bad disney movie soon....

on a side note, I stopped watching the new ones since Pocahontas... I don't like the drawings on them anymore.
even though, some of them were always a little scary and overly sad.
Bambi? Burning forest and the such.
Dumbo? I still cry because they lock up his mom, and the freaky singing pink elephants in his dream? Right.
I think I'll stick with Cinderella and Aristocats

Aww...sorry to hear your daughter is still feeling traumatized by the movie. I can feel your pain. Have you tried a game of hide and seek? Thanks for the fab freebie. I can visualize all my favorite Christmas ornaments hanging in the frames now!

Poor baby, those movies scare me, too! I don't blame her... Maybe a better movie will take her mind off of that one. Love your template - it's great!!!

Freebie on my blog today....

Thanks so much for the wonderful template!

Have you gone on a leopard hunt in the house yet? Maybe she will not be so scared it she realizes there is nothing in the house to harm her or you. Just a thought.

Have a GREAT day! :)

I think you guys need to do some kind of leopard exorcism. Something that will make Little Girl feel like she's got power over evil leopards and anything else that might threaten hearth and home. Maybe you could buy a leopard pinata, work together to smash it to bits, and then enjoy the candy inside...

Thanks for visiting my blog. Those monkeys on the Wizard of Oz scared me when I was little. I hope she gets over this soon. Disney does stuff like that in every movie they make and it drives me nuts!

Thanks for the nice template

Cindi said...

Thanki you so much! I love the template...I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. My son couldn't stand the ocean for a time after seeing "The Little Mermaid"...dang Ursala..the sea witch! It will get better!

Thank you so much for sharing!

This is an awesome template! Thank you so much for sharing. And just for a little encouragement - the fear will one day pass. She'll know you're always there for her and one day (sooner than you think) she'll realize she doesn't need you around at all. So, as I'm sure you're doing, DOCUMENT it now. Because one day you'll wonder what it was like to be so needed...
Have a great day, despite that bad leopard!

Sorry about the bad leopard. Funny the things that get to kids. Well, funny LATER not so much at the time ;)
Thanks for the interesting and unique template. I take a lot of crappy photos and it's nice to have way to use them!

I remember when we were camping in the forest, sleeping in our tent and a certain 2 year old insisted that a lion was in our tent. This occured from about 2am until it was light. Disney!

Thank you for the cute quickpage. I can't wait to use it.

Maybe you can use scrapbooking as a way of showing her how things are created and that Disney isn't real, that movies are made to entertain us or to teach us lessons. Maybe you can use characters from the Disney movie and have her do things with them. Put them away in a cage, delete them, scribble them out, whatever she feels.

Awesome template! Thanks! :)

Ladye said...

Sounds like it is going to be very looooonnnngggg summer at your house. Hopefully you will find soemnthing to help her through this bad time. Oh and this template is totally great, I have lots of those not so good photos and I'll bet I'll use it more than once. Thanks!

Did you know someone sued McDonald's because they spilled coffee on themselves? The plaintiff said the McD's employee did not tell her the coffee was hot. If someone can bring such a frivolous suit to court, I'm sure you could give Disney a run for their money. Emotional suffering and distress for a movie that is supposed to be G Rated especially if a lot of mommies got together on this..idk...just a thought
