Fighting For The Cure!!

Welcome to my blog and thanks for taking your time to come and see what I'm up to these days.

Today is a very special Hop for the Magnolia-licious DT .

I am very excited to get you started and off on your way to the next designer. Now first If you are coming from my lovely friend Mary's blog then your right were we want you at :)

The Magnolia-licious DT wants to help promote awareness/early detection and share what this Think Pink Month is about with ALL women!  We also want to honor all of those women that have or are currently fighting this disease and show our support in the fight!!  To show our support the DT has planned our own “Think Pink” Celebration and we hope you can all join in.  Each DT gal has created some Sweet-PINK treats and PINK Packaging to match using those beautiful Magnolia images.  You can find some Magnolia stamps that were created specifically for Pink Ribbon Awareness at Magnolia-licious <HERE>   So have fun hopping along to see all the fabulous Pink-a-licious Creations and make sure to stop back by the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog to join in on the fun too! 

I had a blast creating this set and the stories behind the scenes that came with them is unforgettable!!!

I baked pink cupcakes and topped with my "special pink whoop cream". Don't ask me why my kids and myself have pink teeth. It was an ugly mess but I would do it again for sure lol!

Onto the deets of the project.
I colored this time with my DI and I am featuring Tilda with Pink Rose and Boxing Tilda. You could find them available at the Magnolia-licious store NOW! 
I have a few Magnolia Doohickey Dies going like my Swirly Butterly and Dream Tag.

Everything is so sparkly specially when I used this all glitter pink paper. So it's more than the usual :)

Here is my Card with Boxing likes? Uhhh I had to color in a pink ribbon on her shirt. Her shorts are paper pieced with that pink glitter paper I had mentioned.

That's it for now but before I send you to my other gorgeous friend Janiel.

Tilda wants to share a few details explaining what this is all about.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) is an annual international health campaign organized by major companies every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.  The Pink Ribbon symbol was used in 1993 by Evelyn Lauder as the symbol of The Breast Cancer Research Fund she founded and is used to symbolize the fight against the disease.  We also honor those that have fought the battle and who are currently fighting the battle while raising awareness to ALL women to be aware of the symptoms and to be proactive against the disease.   Want to find out more?  The National Breast Cancer Foundation HERE for those in the US and globally at the site HERE!
  • In 2011 Nearly 1.5 million women across the world were told they had breast cancer
  • One-third of breast cancer deaths can be decreased with early detection and treatment
  • In the US 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer over their lifetime, an estimated 527 women are diagnosed in the US with breast cancer each day

Ok that's all from me and thank you for your sweet wonderful comments. Take it away Janiel :)
