I was at Layle Koncar's blog
And this caught my eye.

Such a cool t-shirt with a great message! I have a good friend (Katie) that is going through breast cancer and treatments right now. She finished Chemo in Dec. and is almost thru with radiation. As soon as I saw this shirt, I knew it was for her! She has such a postitive attitude, she is truely remarkable. She is getting her hair back and is so cute!!

Two Chicks Designs donates a portion of every sale of their breast cancer awareness apparel and accessories to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which is dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer.

If you have anyone in your life that has gone through or is currently going through breast cancer, definitely go check out the Two Chicks Designs site - lots of great things supporting the cure. And if you're a scrapbooker, check out their scrapbooking apparel while you're there - fun stuff!

Save a Life!!

Please tell ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is
having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on donating a mammogram' for free (pink window in the middle). This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors /advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising.

Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know.

And, don't forget to bookmark it and go back every day! You could be saving a life!

It literally is as easy as going to that site and clicking on the pink box and that's it. You don't have to fill anything out or anything.

Thanks to Heather for sending this info! It really is nothing but could make a difference in someones life.

Card Patterns Sketch#6

Alicia hooked me up with this card blog challenge so I thought I would give it a try. Awesome prizes to be given away over there. Go take a peek! Here is the card sketch #6 and my take on it. Thanks Alicia!

365 Days/365 Cards

I am a little behind, but I plan on trying to get more cards done. My friend, Desiree was asking about card sites/sketches etc. so I will be turning her onto a few along the way. If you have great card sites, please leave a comment for her to check out since I am sure I do not know all of the great sites out there. I am starting with 365 Cards and we will go from there. Don't forget to leave your favorite site or blog in the comments for her to check out. Alecia's blog (to the right column) has some wonderful cards on it too. Have fun Desiree and don't for get to come back and share your creations with us!!

A Little Creativity is Good for the Soul

I didn't get as much done yesterday as I would have liked but I was happy with my layout that I did for Sketch#43 at Creative-Scrappers so I thought I would share. This is my dh and I the night before our last child. I have never had great "belly shots" before and just love the way these turned out. Since it is our last baby that makes it all the more special. I will never have that chance to feel the little life wiggle inside of my tummy again and that makes me kinda sad. I will cherish those moments forever. Today is another beautiful day, gearing up for possible rain again. I love spring rain as long as it doesn't get cold with it like last week. Enjoy your day in your neck of the woods.

Guest Designer for Creative-Scrapper

Super Duper! I was just chosen as guest designer for Creative-Scrappers. I am so excited. I just love their sketches and can't wait for them to come up each week. The girls there are wonderful too, so supportive of eachother. I am just itching to see the sketch that they give me to work with. The new design team will be announced soon, so head on over and see what is going on there. Desiree, they also have card sketches too. Register and join us in all the fun.

Beautiful Day!

Wow, what a beautiful day! Spring is definetly in the air here. We have the windows open, cleaning a little, sun is out and shining so bright. I just love days like this, especially when I don't have to work and be cooped up all day. I am ready to scrap a little though. I think I will go blog hopping. I know Tara has a new challenge or too on her blog and Lucy has some great sketches. I also have a sketch challenge to do at Creative Scrappers and new ones at Scrapperie. This should keep me busy for the day. I will be back tomorrow and let you know if I get this accomplished, until then, enjoy your beautiful day!

Welcomed Rain

Well, it has been raining cats and dogs for two days now. Boy did we need it too, but I could have done without the cold. Earlier in the week we were having 80 degree days and you could just feel spring in the air, now it feels like winter again. I am off tomorrow to visit my parents for the weekend and then we will come back home on and enjoy a lazy spring break from school. I can't wait, we all need a break. It will be so nice to sleep in, scrap through the day. Oh, and a little house keeping in between. DJ will be with us too and that always makes for a great time. We all miss him so much, it is nice when he is home. I hope the sunny weather shows back up so we can spend some time outdoors. We had hoped to go camping, guess mother nature will determine that. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend and if you don't have anything to do, check out the March is for Members crop at YOUR MEMORIES BY DESIGN. I am sorry to say, I will be missing out on that.
