Tribute to a Pet

A co-worker of mine recently had to put down her beloved Holly, an Aussie Shepherd she has had for over fifteen years. I am not very good with expressing words for occasion like this, so I made this for her.
She had emailed friends a photo and this beautiful prose.
It took me approximately five or six hours from idea concept to completion, even though I had some incredible inspiration from Amy - she is the master of name collages, and has a great technique and gallery of the ones she has made on her blog, here.

I presented this to my co-worker today, and she was very misty-eyed, so I think she really likes it. I could hear her telling others throughout the day, "look what Cheryl made for me!". That made me feel good. I'm glad it is something she can hold on to. :)
