So Happy To Be "Featured" At
Once Upon a Sketch February Challenge
"Somewhere Over The Rainbow"
My Beautiful Poppy Girl

  I just found out that my layout with my
beautiful Poppy girl was "Featured" over at
Once Upon A Sketch.
Thank you so much to Nadia & all her team.
I think I will certainly find some time to
join in again next month.
This truly warms my heart as this layout
really means a lot to me.
Thank you OUAS.

Hello everyone. Thanks so much for calling by.
Today I have my layout for the February
Once Upon a Sketch challenge to share.

This layout is very very SPECIAL to me.
This is my little dog "Poppy" who died just before Christmas.
This is the first layout I have done of her since she passed away.
It has just been too painful.
She was my baby girl. My sons are all grown up & my hubby
 & I are now empty nesters. So Poppy was the light of our lives.
We used to say she was the daughter we never had.
We only have sons you see.
I'm sure people thought we were positively mad,
but we truly LOVED her. She was a really 
big part of our lives.
So, it only seemed fitting that I do this layout,
about my love for my beautiful little girl, "Poppy".

I have journalled on a little tag which I have slid in behind
the photo.

My good friend Vanessa over at 2 Crafty Chipboard made me up 
this beautiful title, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".
Thanks so much Vanessa, this was just what I wanted.
I love that they do custom made.
The flourish on the left is also from 2 Crafty chipboard too.

Obviously I have used lots of pretty flowers & leaves,
because I so wanted it to be girly & feminine.
Most of the flowers, leaves, Jute ribbon & lace are
from Green Tara.

Thanks so much for calling by & taking time
to read my little story about my beautiful "Poppy Girl".
Until next time.
