I finally got the October LO done.
Sorry it took me longer than expected. It turned out to be a LOT harder to do than I thought... I don't think any tears hit the actual page luckily. I almost changed my mind a few times but the pictures were printed and I really did want to get *this* page done.
I decided the soft colors of the Artwork lent themselves well to the Memorial Page I've been trying to get done for our much loved bunny Cleo we lost last year. Lots of pinks in there: ribbon, letters, flowers, her favorite blanket and of course the Pink Roses. Birds are hard to see but they are around The Rainbow Bridge Poem. There is also a fair bit of lace across the top and touches of bling here & there.
The Rainbow Bridge
There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth. It is called the rainbow bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the rainbow bridge is a land of meadows, hills and valleys, all of it covered with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this lovely land. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. There, the old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole once more. They play all day with each other.
There is only one thing missing. They are not with the special person who loved them on earth. So each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The eyes are staring! You have been seen, and that one suddenly runs from the group!
You take her or him into the eyes of your trusting pet.
Then, together, you cross the rainbow bridge, never again to be separated.
