My April More Than Words DT Reveal
"Somewhere Over The Rainbow"


Hi there paper friends. Thanks for stopping by.
Today I have my April DT reveal for the new challenge over at
This is the new April challenge board. 

I have called my layout "Somewhere Over The Rainbow"
in dedication to my beautiful "Poppy" girl who sadly passed away back in 2012.
The word ESCAPE is what she did, she escaped her poor old tired & sick body.

Here is a little poem that some of you may know,
 about loosing a much loved pet.....

"BEYOND THE RAINBOW"
"As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free

Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful - lush and green and wide
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright glow pierced the night
"Twas the glow of many candles, shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in it's brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be
We are still connected by a cord no one else can see
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart".
