I Miss... (OUAS March 15th Challenge)

For the latest challenge at Once Upon A ...Sketch, i had to create a layout about someone i miss right now and why.  It could be about a loved one, but also about missing a special time in your life or even missing a beloved pet.  

I chose to scrapbook about my darling Buffy whom i still miss a lot even if she's been gone for almost 5 years.  This special doggy has meant so much to me and, as cheesy as it may sound, she had been my most loyal friend for 9 years before i had to say goodbye to her.  To this day, i still sometimes see and hug her in my dreams and those dreams are always the sweetest.  I know that i will have more pets throughout my life, but Buffy will always hold a very special place in my heart.

Along with the journaling criteria, Once Upon A ...Sketch provided this sketch as inspiration.
Here is my layout...
The journaling reads: "Even after almost 5 years, I still miss you so... your cute face, your furry cuddles, your unconditional love, cute Buffy girl."
I used a mixture of different products for this layout, among others, My Mind's Eye So Sophie pattern paper, Dusty Attic chipboard, Imaginarium Designs chipboard, Prima and KaiserCraft flowers, Prima Alphabet Stickers, ZVA Creative bling and KaiserCraft rub-ons.

Here are some close-ups:

As always, I'm interested in reading your thoughts on my layout and also on your special pet who's no longer with you but whom you still miss today.
