I don't think I've ever done a layout without photos before,  but since it's a new year I thought it was time I gave it a try.  When I unwrapped my 2011 calendar I noticed something printed on the packing cardboard.  I first thought it was just a manufacturer's advertisement, but upon closer inspection I discovered that in addition to the ad, there was a spiritual message.  I decided to capture the message in a layout to include in my 2011 album.

When the time is right, will you be ready?????
