Dogs capture our hearts and  stay in our memories forever.

I have used this napkin before in different ways, but it is one that I really enjoy using.
I have to say I felt much better after my  crafting session today, I needed time to be by myself.
  I had been thinking of our old Meg. we said goodbye to her,  this time last year. 
All our animals have been special to us over the years
 and I'm sure you  animal lovers out there will feel the same way about your animal friends.

On the left are a few photos I took while making the spread.
napkins torn and stuck down on the page

A few areas of random stencils  using oxide inks.

The stamped quote  image,
 I knew  I just had to add to this page.

There is new challenge theme for February  over at
Rike has chosen the topic  for this month ' Animals from   A---Z'.

So I will be popping over to join in , its a super new theme

Thank you for stopping by to see me today, you are always very welcome here.


  1. This is so utterly beautiful and I can follow your thoughts - we have them always in our hearts - forever, they are our family - and our pets are like angels - they love us from the bottom of their hearts!
    What a wonderful tribute to Meg Yvonne! ♥♥♥
    Thank you for such a wonderful entry linked to the new theme - I have some tears in my eyes now.
    I have relaxing music for cats and dogs here running ( Youtube ) it started to snow and my both snore behind me.
    So peaceful.

  2. Gorgeous page, I think we all have close ties to our beloved pets and never forget them. Hope you soon feel better. Hugs, Valerie

  4. So beautiful and I really feel for you. I don't know where I would be without my little 8 year old Jojo. xxx


  5. What a lovely tribute to your loving Meg. We often don't realize how important our animals are in our lives until we are faced with losing them. At least you are able to keep her alive in your art and on your blog. This is a fabulous entry for Art Journal Journey, and I, for one am so pleased with this heartwarming first entry there today. Thanks for joining us.

  6. Oh, what a beautiful page! Pets are our best friends (can one person ever be as good as a dog and give full love without questions?) - I know your feelings very well, I lost my dog years ago, but I'm thinking about him yet - he never died in my heart.
    Your napkin dogs are wonderful and this quote too! Thank you for such an entry full of feeling linked to Art Journal Journey!

  7. A really beautiful page!! I bet you miss that lovely dog of yours, but this is a great way to preserve your memories of her!

  8. I know exactly what you mean Yvonne. Tomorrow will be one of our previous dog's 18th birthday. I can't believe he has been gone for 4 years now and I still miss him, even with 2 more dogs at home. He was a good boy and animals do So your page really speaks to me and animals do become friends and family. Your page is great! Hugs-Erika

  9. This is lovely. I have a Collie just like the black and white one.

  10. A Fabulous page Yvonne, we had a collie just like Meg, but many years ago now. Now we have four cats. It's a great tribute to her.
