DCWV January Template Challenge

I received an email yesterday from DCWV Diary Blog for their January Stack-a-holic challenge. I had promised myself that I would do one layout per week this year and this was the perfect motivation. Erin chose a great layout sketch by Susan at Sketch Savvy!

We (my little family) went to Disneyland over the kids Christmas break. We went on Dec. 29th and let me tell you, DO NOT go on this week EVER! The tournement of the Roses and the Rose parade in Pasadena was that weekend so every High School marching band was visiting Disneyland before they had to get to work! It was a sea of people, but it is the Happies Place on Earth!

We still had a great time and even got to go on rides. On our way to Disneyland I asked Ethan (age 4) who he wanted to see ( I already knew the answer). He said "PLUTO!" Luckily, Pluto was visiting Santa and his reindeer at the Reindeer Round-up just shy of reaching Big Thunder Mountian. We saw him THREE, yes you read that right, THREE times. Thank God the line was not long at all and Pluto was very patient and just as excited as Ethan every single time he saw him. What a good puppy!

So after all my blabbering here is my first layout of 2012! May there be many more!

I used the DCWV Guy stack which worked out perfectly! The blue crochet ribbon I purchased from Paper Issues.

I used SVG Attic Jack's Tracks SVG Colleciton for the Bone Tag! I used the Argyle Cuttlebug folder and embossed the name tag. Used SCAL to create the Pluto die cut.

I aslo used Jack's Tracks for the Paw Prints and one of our newest collections Be Mine for the journaling tag which is found in the Love Coupons Booklet.

These are the Dog Tag files in the Jack's Tracks SVG Collection also.

And here is my little monkey! <3 him so much!
