Breast Cancer Awareness
BBTB2 sweet design team sister Brenda has asked us to pay honor to Breast Cancer Awareness month for October. I purchased the Pink Expression a few months ago and with that came the Pink Journey cartridge so I chose to use that for most of my design. I designed a box that I call "Box of Hopes"...I have so many cherished friends who have battled this horrid disease and I am so glad that many of them have won their battle...Just after my father passed away in 1984, my step mom had a double mastectomy. She passed away in 2001 but it was from other afflictions.... Inside the box I have cut many words significant to anyone who has battled Breast Cancer. Believe, Hope, Dream. The box has a clear cover so that the words inside can show. I decorated the top of the box with two sizes of Nestie dies, added a corner decoration from Cheery Lynn Designs (oh wow are these great) and I added the PINK RIBBON with a Cheery Lynn butterfly., Pink and white pearls have been added. The 4 sides of the box are decorated as well. Three sides say HOPE, while the front of the box has the two love doves. All of the additions to the box have been embossed.
