Stuck?! Sketches and Stairway to Heaven Challenge

I saw this great double challenge over at Stuck?! Sketches for November and decided to play along!
Here is the AWESOME Sketch from STUCK?!

As an added challenge, they are partnering up with "Scrap It With a Song" Blog - and they have selected the Led Zepplin Song - "Stairway To Heaven" as their inspiration.
(LOVE that song!)

I decided to use a photo of our first Portuguese Water Dog, Turnabout Princess Water Lily.  She passed away in 2011 and even though we have added 2 more PWD's to our family, who are both related to her great grandmother and grandfather, 
our Lily is missed everyday and will always hold a special place in our memories and hearts.

Here is my layout of our beautiful girl....
I used the first two lines of the song for my inspiration. 
"There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven."

I used GOLD accents and a GOLD title in the layout, and if I COULD, I WOULD buy a Stairway to Heaven, to see our girl again. 

Here are some close ups for you too...






Here are the items I used:
I thought that the BoBunny Star-Crossed Collection would be PERFECT for the theme of this layout.
I used the following 12x12 papers: Stripe, Washi, Altered, Love
and the following embellishments from the Collection too: Ephermera, Noteworthy, Layered Chipboard, Stamp Stickers
We R Memory Keepers Gold Sequin Stickers and Gold Foil Words
Distress Stain colors: Black Soot, Evergreen Bough, Tarnished Brass
Distress Ink: Black Soot
Stencil

Thanks for stopping by!
