Operation Julie's Smile Blog Hop

Welcome to Operation Julie's Smile blog hop. This is a big blog hop so there may be a break so head back to Sweet Stop Shop. The picture is linked to the store. You should of come from Tenia's blog Jazzy Paper Designs.

“The creative blogging community is coming together this weekend to help one of our friends, Julie Ranae. You may know her as the Design Team Coordinator for many wonderful companies from bakers twine, die cuts, rubber stamps and more. What many people don’t know about Julie Ranae is that she has had some pretty major dental surgeries in her lifetime due to medication she had to take as a child. It was in her plans to think about having all of her teeth replaced at some point in the next 5 years, a decision that was pretty easy to plan out. But then it happened…she chipped her front teeth on a weekend a month ago. The dentist told her there was no way to save them & that it was his recommendation that she give in and have them all her teeth removed soon, but for that day, they needed to get her front teeth done so her gums could begin to heal. He said he would 'work out payments with her to have ALL this work done...but when she called to make her appt for the first step of impressions, they told her the amount of money that was needed and that the 'payments' applied only to the two teeth that were extracted that day. Her husband Paul was with her & that too, was his understanding as well. So this is how she has found herself in this situation…Needing at least $4000 to get started and another $3000 to finish the process…a total of $7000.

Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop put together this benefit after finding out about this situation and before Julie Ranae knew it, it took flight!Because she is an event organizer by trade, she has taken on the job of organizing all of the blogs in this hop as her way of ‘working overtime’ for what she needs, the same as if she were able to work overtime at an outside job to pay for the work to be done.It is the goal of all of these generous friends & sponsors to help make this situation more do-able for our friend so that she can share a brand new smile with all of us soon. If there is anything you can do to help with a financial donation, there is a donation button ready for you to click. Any amount is appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500.”

My card is simple one that I used scraps from my desk. Enjoy the hop!

I hope you enjoyed your stop here on the hop! The next stop is Kristen’s blog. Make sure you leave a comment here before you go so that you can have a chance at the amazing prizes up for grabs and if you can, please make a donation so we can help bring back a new smile for our friend”

TTCRD challenge

Welcome to the October 1st challenge for Through the Craft Room Door. Our challenge this time is Pink and White with lots of bling or pearls. Oh, no squares or rectangles. Our wonderful sponsor is Pizzazz Aplenty. There is an awesome goodie bag.

I choose to create a Top Note Box and little note card. The note card is ok shape since it has some shape to it. I used Basis Pink. Rose Quartz Metallic and Sparkle Blanc for my papers from Paper Temptress. Pretty in Pink ink was used to stamp the ribbon on the pink. I framed Princess Jennifer Latte Breast Cancer Awarness from The Stamping Boutique with 5 mm pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty. 4mm pink pearls were used on the note card. The ribbon is from my stash. The saying on the note card was heat embossed with Melon Mambo embossing powder.
This is what is inside the box. It is a full rosary with the breast cancer bead for Our Fathers. This set is for our church auction next week. If interested in a rosary, just leave a comment with your information.
