HONORING ALL WOMEN!

The Magnolia-licious DT has moved our monthly BLOG HOP to Monday, October 8 in order to honor all women with our THINK PINK CELEBRATION! Our assignement (and, YOURS, too!!) is to create something pink which includes a treat! We all know women who have gone or are going through the ordeal of fighting breast cancer!! They are our heroes, so this treat is for THEM! We also want to promote the idea that ALL women need to be aware of this disease and do all they can to take care of themselves!  If you're on the HOP and have come from the UBER talented Suzanne Dean's blog-SCRAP BITZ, you are in the right place and welcome!
 My (original!) plan was to create this little backpack in pink.  I made it, but then there really isn't a place to put the full sized Tilda I wanted to use. Though it is a really cute way to give a gift card!  So I printed out my TOTE pattern (again!) and made it in Kraft cardstock with pink!  I've used CELEBRATION TILDA from the SWEET CRAZY LOVE COLLECTION. She is not in stock now, BUT Diana got some stamps from the PINK COLLECTION in stock for this event!  A prtion of the proceeds from the sale of these stamps is donated to the Cancer Society for Breast Cancer Research.
 Can you see my 'pink treats' peeking out of the top?
 A close up of my PINK Tilda!  She is colored in E000, E11, R30, Hair E50, Y21, Y32 and E33. Clothes are R81, 83 and 85.  A touch of stickles to finish off her outfit and she is ready to conquer!
Here are the pink treats I made-butter cookies frosted and sprinkled with pink to complete the message!
Here's some information about the purpose/reason for Breast Cancer Awareness in October!
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 PinkRibbon.org 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
Thanks so much for joining on our special hop/event today!! We hope you'll enter your creation over at our BLOG!  For now PLEASE head over to GRAMMA'S HOUSE OF CARDS, Sharon's wonderful BLOG for some fabby inspiration!
Thanks for dropping by!! Hugs, Cheryl

Thanks for your support to Breast Cancer Awareness month. 1993 was the year that the pink ribbon was created, and also the year I lost my mom to this horrible disease. Your projects are beautiful and the cookie looks delicious. Hopefully with all this kind of support and fundraising there will soon be a cure.
Hugs xx
