Breast Cancer Awareness Month Blog Hop October 1st.

Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Breast Cancer Awareness blog hop!! We want to spread the news about this deadly disease that could be cured if it is diagnosed in time. I know that each and everyone of us has been touched by someone with cancer or has had it themselves. Please invite your family and friends to participate in the hop. If you have come from Jennifer then you are in the right place. If you want to start from the beginning then please start with Denise she is the Host of this hop. Remember,to be eligible for the blog candy that she is  giving away on her blog, which will be a bag of goodies that you can use to scrap with and a $15.00 gift certificate. You must leave a comment on each blog and become a member of each blog to be eligible for the candy. 

I , as I'm sure a lot of us have been affected in some way with Breast Cancer. My project is made with LOVE for my Aunt Betty. She was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and had to have a double mastectomy last year. She has been thru a lot as you can imagine, but she is a STRONG women, and has fought this tooth and nail. I will never forget the day she was at my house and said to me, " I'm going to be the first person to gain weight on Cemo", as she was stuffing her face with a LARGE honeybun..... Her determination to fight this UGLY disease inspired me to NEVER let anything get you down no matter what life brings you. She is now doing REAL well and we celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary last week. It was a VERY special time for all of us, because we did not know if she would be with us much longer. I made this project with her in mind, and will be mailing it to her soon. It is a Christmas ornament that I made for her to hang on the tree. I used the clear glass balls that I got at Michaels. I used the Pledge method inside the ball and put pink glitter inside to coat it. I used my vinyl and the cricut to cut out polka dots, the word HOPE and the ribbon to it. Tied some tulle around the top for hanging. Voila there you have it. Hope you enjoy the hop. 

your next stop is Tonya I know she is going to have a great project to show you.

Day two of School Blog Hop

So did you have fun yesterday going thru the Hop. I hope so there were some CUTE projects made. Well today is DAY 2 for the hop, and everyone has a NEW project to show you today. So lets make sure we do our homework, and get hopping to the blogs.
Yesterday I made an altered notebook made into a shape of an apple. Today I have made a 2 page 12 x 12 spread to put your Cutie Pies first day back to school pics on. I know you took pictures on the first day. I cut out trees and a school bus with my cricut and tore brown paper along the bottom edge to look like the bus was going down the path to pick up the kids.I put paperclips on some of the photo mats to give it a little school look.  I hope you like it.

Now skip on over to craftyhomemade and see what she has for you today.
