Breast Cancer Awareness Project

Hey Everybody!  There's a new challenge this week over a Bitten by the Bug 2.  This week we'd like you to make a project to support a health awareness, such as breast cancer, Lupus, Luekemia, etc...your choice!  

Boy did this really hit home for me.  My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in February.  Since then she has undergone a mastectomy and is now on week 16 of 24 weeks of chemo with radiation to follow.  So far we've gotten great news, and scans right before chemo showed she was cancer free!!  She still has quite a bit ahead of her, but I know she is so strong!

So this project has to be one of the most special things I've made.  This framed project will hold a very special picture!  It is for the day she rings her bell on her last day of chemo!  I want her to always remember how strong she has been even when she hasn't felt like it at all.  

Hope-Gypsy Wanderings-2.25 in.
Butterfly-Once Upon a Princess-2.00 in. 
Flowers-Once Upon a Princess 1 in. and 1.5 in.
Frame-Elegant Edges-8.35 in.

Hope to see you enter the challenge this week!!
