Here's a super simple layout I made last weekend using some ancient SEI dog themed embellishments. I used some of my stash - woot! woot! Side note: I adore this picture of Lowder-dog because he looks so regal sitting there. :)

And one more time for the finished layout...
This layout came together very quickly, maybe 30 minutes total. While it doesn't feature the newest products or any major techniques, I enjoyed sharing one of my fave photos of Lowder-dog and sharing one of his nicknames in my album.
