Ready to welcome 2011?

Woooo hoooo hoooo! It's almost 2011... Yes, it is. A new year is always a reason to be happy. You can make your new resolutions, plan for the future, be determined to change something... it means change, a new beginning, forgetting about the things you want to leave behind... It means time, growth, experience... it's life! It's like you have an opportunity to start again. It's like a mandatory date you use to measure your accomplishments and mark something in your life. Try to see your new year as an opportunity to be a better person. I'm sure you are already awesome, but you know... we can always improve this and that. After all, we are imperfect (and that's fun... but gives you the space for improvement)...

Try to think of all the things you've done... and those you still haven't! All you've said, and you have not... Become new with the new year.

Hope you have wonderful New Year's Eve and Day celebrations... and enjoy life.

And... change of topic. I wanted to share with you this layout about me and my dog. It's a very simple layout in terms of design and technique. However, it means a lot. And you know, it's only a dog... he doesn't know how to read... but I needed to express that I'm here for him. When he's sick, sad and in need to play with a ball... I'll be there. He's a very special dog and I have no doubt he's with us for a reason. This day I was kind of nostalgic and need to make sure it was clear I'm here for him... and I wanted to document the feeling.

So the journaling is written like I'm talking to Malbec, my dog-son, and I'm telling him: I'm here for you...

I really loved the way the tags looked and worked for the base for my journaling. I'm very glad I used them because I've had them stored for a while. I think those are part of the first things I adquired when began this hobby about 3 or 4 years ago. And now I've been the last 4 or 5 months determined to use materials I have instead of buying and buying new things. The tag in the middle was scored several times and then inked for texture. I also distressed the borders of almost everything in this layout... as much as I could. I also liked the way you can use a patterned paper for base in your favor. I think the swirl in the bottom left corner helps my page have some balance with the rest of elements.
Hope you like it...
