Cancer Support & Survivor Blog Hop

               Welcome to Day 1. Thank you so much for being a part of this amazing Blog Hop. I am so honored to be a part of this event.  If you came from visting ...  ~Amanda"s  Blog  at...  Than you

 are right where you should be ...but if you've picked up

here and you want to hop along please head over  to the

hostess of this amazing hop at...Erica"s Blog
                     Now on to the creation for Day 1. As you can tell by now I love making Mini's. I love making them out of everything possible.If you can fold it, bind it, or glue it chances are I'm trying it. * giggles*....
                 This Mini is a paper bag mini ( which I love to Do ) It is 5 x 51/ has 8 places inside for pics or journaling...10 if you use the front/back covers. 4 pockets with 4 tags.

This little ribbon charm has the worp hope engraved on it.

All sentiments were cut using my Home Decor Cricut Cart. As well as the butterflies and corner accents.

 I love the way it turned out.

The paper I used for this Mini is from the block " Simply Delightful" by My Mind's Eye...Which I love, in fact I had if for a while but I liked it so much I didn't wanna cut it. But as you see I did and I'm glad I did. It's very pretty here
You can see pink ribbons through out this Mini, they are actually glitter stickers which caught my eye walking through the card dept. at Wal-Mart ...hehege.

 This is the back , left some open spaces for someone elses creative moments.
These are the tags for pics or journaling. Also cut with my Cricut
 All cuts have been made with my Cricut carts. I used the mix and match feature for each cart, whiich makes it so much easier when your doing several pieces for a Mini.
I hope you like this little Mini made for this Hop. As A reminder please have regular scheduled Mammograms...Had it not been for that one uncomfortable appointment , This year might have had a different out come for me. So if you haven't made that appointment ,please do it soon.

         Now for some ....BLOG my regular followers know my 13 year old daughter designs jewelry and she has made a few pieces to be given away during this's the 1st one....

isn't it cute ! this pink bracelet is made from glass beads with the hope ribbon charm.
just leave a comment and a way to contact you, someone will be chosen Monday.
