Inking Pink Awareness Hop!

Welcome! Our paper crafting community spans the globe and brings all of us together under a common roof. We are grandmothers, granddaughters, mothers, daughters, aunts, sisters, best friends, wives, cyber-friends and design team teammates. Many of us have family or friends touched by cancer and all of us want to encourage all of you to check yourself!

This hop will take you around the world, so please sit back with your morning coffee or evening tea and celebrate our stories and projects with us. Some of your fellow crafters along the hop are even offering blog candy! Please give a little comment love to each and every crafter along the way. :) We hope you enjoy our hop, and most of all we all want YOU to give yourself the greatest gift and do a self-check tomorrow. The more you do it, the more breast aware you will be!

Our hop starts at Patricia's blog, so if you've stumbled on today's post and want to join us, please start there.  If you've arrive here from Stephanne's beautiful blog, you're on the right track and almost done!

Here is my darling Tilda, all dressed in pink just for you! I've used My Mind's Eye Laundry Line papers, mulberry flowers and loads of fabulous Stickles. Isn't she pretty?

I also have blog candy to share. I've just recently started checking "the girls" in every shower and I want to celebrate that with you! Ok, that sounds weird... but you know what I mean! *grin*

Here are my requirements:
  1. You must make every effort to check your "girls". I know we're all busy people, but please slow down long enough to do a self-exam as often as possible. The more you do it the more familiar you will become with monthly changes and be better equipped to detect even the smallest abnormality. Please, just do it!
  2. Follow this blog
  3. If you're on Facebook, please "friend" the Killam Creative fan page
  4. If you're on Twitter, please follow @KillamCreative
In your comment below, tell me which of those 4 items you've done, and I'll give you an entry for each. You have until Sunday, October 31 at 11:59pm ES to enter.  I will announce the winner on Tuesday, November 2. Thanks!

6 12x12 sheets My Mind's Eye Laundry Line
