A New Year - A New Look

*bites nails* *looks around nervously*

Yes, you are at the right place. Hey! Don't go it's the Vanquish blog, it... uhm just ...looks. differently!

Well, a new year a new Layout. It was about time that I change the look of my blog, not that I didn't like my "old" one, I did and still do. But, sometimes one needs to be brave enough for a change and since I started my own blogdesign blog 2 months ago. (*gasp* only 2 month ago? I can't believe it...) Anyhoodle, I designed so many wonderful blogs for so many wonderful people, like The Meadow for cutie or The Sweet Darkness for fragilefoxes and I can't mention them all here because by now I designed 14 layouts.. wohooo, but not a layout for myself.

Every time I finished a layout and read about the excitement of the peeps I wished I could also change my own layout. Why doing wonderful layouts for other people when not doing something for myself!!!

Well, the problem were the colors..... With the "old" design I forced myself into a color scheme : black, white, red - and I freaking adore this combination, but I never found a kit which really looked perfect for me...

After days of days and weeks of lurking at my designers I stumpled over Lily's Little Red Bird kit and I stoped: Hmmm, there is red and, white and it looks super pretty and sweet and cute and dreamy - shall I try it?! Could I really do this?! YES I did!

And here and now I have to thank all my friends who held my hand during this and gave their input, without you girls I think I wouldn't have done this *sniffles* and *hugs* I was so nevous about this and truly without your encouragement I wouldn't have been able to do this..

*clears throat* Well, yes look around, this is what I designed for myself.... I know I know it's totally different but I love it. This is a totally romantic and dreamy layout and apart from the fact that I'm not a "dreamer" I'm incredible romantic and emotional which I think flows into this layout. While designing this layout I heard the New Moon Score and this might also have influenced this look. When I designed this header, at some point the quote "If I could dream at all it would be about you" came into my head and I knew it fit's perfect to the new layout.

I'm happy how I could include the Vanquish - driving on this road - because with my blogtitle comes a responsibility in having this exclusive car somewhere in the layout... Well luckily I found this road..

However I tried to stay with a few things so that you not completely feel out of space here... I kept the Papyrus font and the font for my title, I stayed with white, grey, black (uhm a bit... see, the font is black!!) and red as eyecatcher however I included the green form the meadow.

So say goodbye to the old layout:
I loved you a whole freaking much, but now it was time for me to move on, you looked wonderful and I will always remember the day when I say you for the first time and when you were finally online so that everybody could see you. *sniffles* ByeBye we had a wonderful time you and me..

Anyhodie, please look around and I hope you will like it the new layout as much as I do and if not, well just read my posts I'm also fine with that.

If you want you can Grab my new Button and replace the "old" one.
I have a bigger one and a smaller one, take which one you like.

Let's ride the Vanquish

You know I mourn the old a layout. A little. It served you well, and I kinda liked it. You comic-me made its way onto my blog too... was even turned into a touching WIME-comic-me once. RIP old MrsV design.
But I'm getting used to the light new flowery MrsVblog. It's more a signature blog for MrV the blogdesigner - so the mission is accomplished. :)
And - HOLY SHIZZLEBIZZLE - 113 followers?? Congrats, my luverly twiancé :)))
