Hip Hop Flip Flop.....HOPE

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Hello Hip Hoppers! It's time for another Unity/Ippity Flip Flop! This week we are honoring National Breast Cancer Awareness month. I am happy to share with you all that I am a survivor! Diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma at the age of 35 was quite a shock since it's Pediatric form of bone cancer that affects children ages 5-18. Thankfully I had a fantastic surgeon and supportive family and boyfriend (now husband). It's been 5 years now that I've been cancer free. For all those who have loved ones or friends battling this disease, you are not alone. Never give up hope that we will find a cure.

I scrapped this layout with some of the flower images from Ippity's Now & Always set and the Cute as a Button collection from My Little Shoebox. I have hope that we will find a cure and that I am hopeful that my children will not be touched by cancer in their lifetime. The Hope die cut is from the Wall Decor and More cart and my Cricut Expression.

There's big things happening at Unity today. Go there and check it all out! Visit the UNITY website here to start the Flip Flop Hip Hop! And.....Unity has a brand new Co-Brand!


I am SO excited! I love love love Jillibean Soup!


Look at these sets! Aren't they ADORABLE! They go perfectly with christmas chestnut soup on kraft collection!!

To all my SCRAPBOOK FRIENDS. The IRS seized a RUSTY PICKLE'S SCRAPBOOK WAREHOUSE today. All items will be for sale on Saturday October 30 at 11:00 a.m. MST. Please go the the attached link for more information! I am sad I cannot shop for SCRAPBOOK SUPPLIES myself...but that is the down side for being an IRS employee.
