Beloved Pet Layout

Today I am posting a layout that I made about a month ago, but am just now getting around to posting here on my blog.

I was going to enter this layout in a challenge, but ended up finishing it late and didn't make the challenge.

I was pleased with how it turned out and since it honors our sweet beloved and departed dog Cookie and her lifelong companion, our Daughter "B", I decided to post it anyway and see what you all think about it.

These pictures were taken a little over a year ago, right before our dog Cookie passed away at 16 years old!

Our Daughter was home from College on a visit and luckily got to spend some time with her before she passed.  

These were the very last photos taken of her and I was so happy that "B" was with her in the pictures, because when we got Cookie as a pup, "B" was only 7 years old and she always considered Cookie  her dog. 

(We had another dog at the time and our son "R" adopted him as his own.)

We sure do miss Cookie, she was a sweetheart and a true friend to all of our Children while they were growing up!

I Googled "Pet Poems" to find the poem shown, but I cannot remember now what site it was, but it did say the author was anonymous.

You can click on the last picture if you want to be able to read the poem better, the picture should enlarge for you.

I apologize for not having a list of materials used for this project or a picture of the materials used.

I usually like to do that, but at the time I was making this layout, I was in a big hurry, because I was trying to make a deadline (which I didn't!) so I forgot to write anything down or take any pictures of the supplies.

If you want to know any info about what I used or any techniques used, just ask, I might be able to "recall" certain things...even in my old age! LOL!

Lisa, you've inspired me to take more photos of my fur babies - they are both getting old now and I can't imagine being without them :)
