There seems to be enough postings here by folks like me who want that promised fantastic unaltered design. Can CK chime in here and give us a heads up on what happened and how we can get this? Your public is waiting... ; ) Laura2

Looking for 3 pixel chicks design
I'm looking for the design used in the Tips & Trick section, where it says "To download the unaltered design courtesy of 2 Pixel Chicks, visit" I can't find it anywhere. LHW, I had no trouble downloading the shoe template, but I used to have issues with PDF files. Try right clicking the link and saving the target to your desktop, then open it from there. Hope that helps!
