October is Breast Cancer Awareness. Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women and the second leading cause of death. Your best weapon against breast cancer is EARLY DETECTION through two common methods of breast screening: breast examination (self and clinical) and screening mammography. Your health is important; you are important. Take good care of yourself.
Our next challenge at Guylou's Inimitability is one that is near and dear to my heart...literally because it is one to celebrate breast cancer awareness! But also because cancer seems to run rampant in my family...both maternally and paternally. I will not go into depressing details but suffice it to say, I get checked out periodically. OK back to the challenge!
Our host this week is the lovely and talented, Sara! And she wants your projects to be mostly in PINK and have a PINK ribbon. You must check out her blog and see her fantastic creation! And check out my side bar for all of the other design team members blogs!
Now for me PINK is easy. I love pink. My favorite color growing up was always blue but about 10 years ago BAM I changed! Now I like PINK. Weird, I know!
I went to the dollar store a few weeks ago and bought a few glass candle holders, vases and found some cute shadow boxes SOOOOOO I decided to make a shadow box for this challenge! I painted it on off white, thinking it would match any decor, added pieces of paper from a pad I bought, added a rhinestone ribbon some sentiments, poem and of course added Leah w/Ribbon!
The poem I got from a site onine that was written by a nurse, that worked in the cancer ward.
I really liked the words and the meaning behind them.
It's a bit blurry but I think you can read it ok!
This challenge starts today and continues until the 20th of October!
There are so many new images that Guylou has created so make sure you check them out at the store.
