Magia (=spell)

Once again I think how lucky I am that I have found this hobby. This last week things have been difficult due to a health problem in the family. So at night, when I come back home without any strength or mood to go anywhere or talk to anyone, but still can't sit there without doing anything, I find peace in my craft room. First I came up with the layout I am going to share with you today. Now I have no more inspiration left, so I'm reorganising my craft room - again!

The layout:

My friends know how crazy I am about cats. I love dogs too, but I'm not as crazy about them as with cats. With only one exception: Magia.

"Magia" in Greek means "spells". So Magia was the dog of an old friend of mine and they gave her that name because "she had put a spell on all of us". Even though Magia left us a few years ago, I never forget her - she really was the only dog that managed to steal my heart. I guess she put a spell on me as well ;)

The photos were old so I changed them to black and white - Magia was a black cocker with white details, so this wouldn't change how she looked. I tried to remove the red (white) eyes flash effect but she looked like an alien. Well, I'm going to learn that trick some day!

I think this is the darkest layout I've ever made... I just hope that my mood has nοt - not do justice to Magia (if you know what I'm trying to say here?). With the red hearts I tried to express my feelings for her.

The layout is based on the following sketch by Sketches in Thyme for which I am Guest Designer this month:

And for the first time I managed to solve a CSI Case File! You can find Case file 66 here

Apart from the colour scheme which I have followed, I have used the following Elements from the Evidence list:
- Arrows
- Hearts
- Flairs (the two button flairs)
- Dog accent (the paws around the vellum paper)
- Doodle (the frame around the layout)

As for the testimony... well, as I said at the beginning, this layout is about my old friend's dog and where her name came from.

I hope you like it!
