Something for me - "Forever"

First of all a massive THANK YOU for all birthday wishes that poured in from all around the globe on Tuesday, 23rd!! I cannot believe how many sweet messages I got - makes my heart go all fuzzy! and for those curious about my age, well let's say I've passed my bi-centennials ha ha!

Guess what hubbs gave me? clever man, a very generous electronic gift card at! me thinks he might have noted the sender's label on the umpteen parcels he's fetched for me from the post office :))

I have written many times how my heart breaks when it's time to take farewell of our fur babies and see them cross the bridge over to the Rainbow Land. Each time I read about a scrappy friend who has parted from her much loved pet, my heart starts beating faster and I get a lump in my throat because I can relate. 

The page I am sharing with you today was made with special love and tenderness for a very special lady and her four-legged darling. I think the photo she took herself speaks volumes.

Here is "Forever In Our Hearts";

The papers on this one are all from Prima's Fairy Belle, good old stashraiding!
The chipboard title is from Imaginarium Designs. Misting in Gold and chalking in plum and brown on it.

The beautiful gold mesh is from sweet Joyce Lawrence in the US and the cute hearts from Riikka Kovasin in Finland. Thank you dear friends!

 Layered fussy cutting, stamping and inking, masking on the bottom layer.

I think it might be worthwile keeping an extra eye on Facebook on 1 May .. something brand new is cooking around the world ...

Toodelipip! xoxox Eila
