    Hello everyone! I am bringing this challenge to you all with a heavy heart. My pup of 9 years was hit by a car last week and we had to say goodbye to him :cry Needless to say, it has been a pretty rough time for my family. Now, I have had to say goodbye to pets in the past, but losing Finn hit me pretty hard...so I took to some scrap therapy.

    My challenge to you this month is to create a layout inspired by your pet (or an animal if you don't have a pet). It doesn't have to be about one that you have lost, I just want to see the gallery overflowing with love for your pets and somehow Finn will know it was inspired by him.

    I made this layout inspired by my son's relationship with Finn, and it talks about everything they were just starting to do together. Owen was just starting to really play with him, and Finn was such a good and patient dog...they had so much fun together. And it breaks my heart that it was stolen from them. Fortunately, my son doesn't quite understand what happened...he just knows that Finn is gone and that he won't be coming back.

    Let fill this gallery up with our wonderful pets!!!

    Please remember our monthly challenge rules:

    Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the March Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    My heart aches for your loss. What a beautiful dog. Please know that I'm thinking of you. Topaz was our only dog, she lived to be 13 and half. She was a Husky Australian Shepard mix who was happy all the time. I miss my pretty girl.

    Thank you so much for this challenge. Sorry to hear about the sudden passing of your dog. My goldie is now nearly 14 years old and she is a trouper, but I can see that I might be facing the fact that she will not be with me forever.....

    I've never had a pet and I could scrap about my brother's dog but would it be OK to scrap about my spirit animal, @bcnatty?

    I'm so sorry about your Finn - dogs give us so many days of happiness yet that one day when we have to say goodbye is so difficult. I have scrapped so many pages of my Daisy and here is another.
