Loyalty - SMASH page

Good morning! Today, as i dont have a card im posting another of my SMASH pages. I was pretty busy over the weekend, trying to finish some challenge cards as well as some birthday cards for my young cousin, and on saturday, had a suprise through the post! My prize from TOMIC challenge arrived!!! I was only expecting the one stamp, but i got 4! So look out for some creations soon.
Anyway, back to SMASH, and this page is called Loyalty. I found this poem on a website which had quotes and poems about dogs and re-wrote it in a different font and colour, then i used Wendy, a saturetd canary image and coloured her in to look a bit like me and Dig. Its a pretty simple page, but i let the poem do the talking.
