Inking Pink Blog Hop

Our paper crafting community spans the globe and brings all of us together under a common roof. Join me, and 25 other talented women for our first:

Blog Hop for Awareness

that has been creatively titled

"Inking Pink"

Many of us have family or friends that have been affected by breast cancer and all of us want to encourage all of you to check yourself! For those of us at The Beary Scrap DT, we have recently found out that our dearest friend and alumni team mate has Breast Cancer. In her honor, we are "hopping" in hopes of helping to spread awareness throughout the world.


I had the perfect stamp in my collection for this hop - Think Pink, Fight Like a Girl from Flourishes. If you look at the tutu on the skirt, you'll notice it has the awareness ribbons worked into the design. Same thing with the heart border. I think it is just an amazing stamp set. I colored my image and background with Tattered Angels and added my faux pearls using a Viva Decor pen (really fun).



From here you will be guided on a journey around the world to visit all the talented artists participating in this amazing event. Some of your fellow crafters along the hop are even offering blog candy! Please be sure to give a little comment of love to each and every crafter along the way. Your next stop is my fellow Beary Scrap gal, Jaimie. I know she will have something wonderful to share with you!

I'm giving a little candy here from my blog (courtesy of Lori Leng,Pink Cloud Scrappers- CTMH consultant) To be eligible to win this candy, please leave a comment and make sure you follow my blog)





The hop will run through October 31 to give all of you enough time to "hop" around and visit each blog.

We all hope you will join us in our hop, and most of all we all want YOU to give yourself the greatest gift and do a self-check. The more you do it, the more breast aware you will be!

Thank you for joining me and all the other ladies and I hope to make this a huge success!!


The following is a list of the beautiful ladies on the hop.

This is simply stunning. Love the design. Thank you for joining us at Stampin Sisters in Christ.

PS
I am afraid I can not read any thing you have written in pink, getting old and it blends in to much with the green where I can not make out the words. Hope I did not miss anything important here :)
