Just Us Girls Challenge #17 - Template Challenge

EDITED:
Mr. Linky had gone missing earlier tonight but now he's back~ Thanks for your patience - the outage affected ALL blogs that had Mr. Linky on them - not just JUGs.

It's Saturday again and time for another challenge with Just Us Girls! This week we have an amazing sponsor for our template challenge. Many of you may be familiar with the amazing Lauren Meader, well Lauren now owns her own store called My Time Made Easy! In one fabulous place you can get Lauren's wonderful templates, digi papers and stamps. Lauren has one fabulous design team in place which include a few of our own here at Just Us Girls. Here is this week's challenge:
I hope you will take time this week to play along with us in this template challenge. If you don't already have one of Lauren's templates she offers a free one in her store called Cutesy Cover Template, so please check that out. We would LOVE IT if you would use one of Lauren's new templates if you have one. However, we want everyone to be able to play so you may use any template that you have. Please just share with us where your template comes from. 

BLOG CANDY!!! Lauren has also generously donated a $25 gift certificate to her store My Time Made Easy for one lucky winner. All you have to do is play along with us and link your creation to the Mr. Linky below. We will draw one lucky winner at random from all the qualifying participants and post the winner next Friday with our Chic of the Week. Remember your entry needs to link directly to your post or gallery photo of your entry. Feel free to also leave us a comment as we love to hear from everyone and what you think of the challenges.

And now "Just Us Girls" presents a little inspiration to get you started. All of the fabulous creations you will see are big sneak peeks for Lauren's February 1 release! So get ready for some fabulous eye candy! First up we'll show you what Lauren has come up with. Isn't this just too cute?!? Just Chickin' In! What a cute and clever sentiment!

How to Play: Upload your project using this week's challenge to your online blog or public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post. If you upload to an online gallery, please use keyword or tag, JUGS17.

Deadline to be considered for "Chic of the Week" will be 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, January 28th. Our "Chic of the Week" will be announced on Friday morning following the deadline. (You may still post to the Mr. Linky after the deadline, but your project won't be eligible for the "Chic of the Week" spot.)

Can't wait to see what you create this week with Just Us Girls!
