Cameo Creations Challenge - Back to School!

Welcome to another Cameo Creations Challenge! This challenge is all about going back to school.  I found these cute little pencil toppers in the silhouette store and added the PKS faces.  I decorated the pencil holder with some 3GJ ribbon and kind of ran out of time with the decoration in the front, so I added a tag from one of my DCWV stacks.

This challenge is being sponsored by Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and it's a $15 certificate! Check her store out she has amazing graphics and digital paper!  You have until September 12th to add your entry for a chance to win this amazing prize!

Link Up For Pink Challenge #5

Welcome to another Link Up For Pink Challenge! This week's challenge is being sponsored by Paper Makeup Stamps.  We are also using a beautiful sketch created by our very own fearless leader Yolie:

Isn't it beautiful?!?!  Here is my take on the sketch:

To create this card I used Paper Makup Stamps' Rose Fairy, Jaded Blossom's sentiment from the simply sayings stamp set and 3 Girl JAM goblin green crinkle ribbon.  The cardstock was from DCWV Preppy Princess stack and some additional scraps.  I colored the image with promarkers.

So here's a little information for this week:  There will be Estimated:
New cases:  226,870 (female) and 2,190 (male)
Deaths: 39,510 (female) and 410 (male)

How alarming are these numbers?  I sure hope that you ladies are being very proactive in getting your boobies checked monthly at home and yearly at the doctor's office.   Early detection is the key!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit the rest of the design team for some inspiration and check out the Link Up For Pink challenge, all you have to do is create something related to breast cancer awareness, use pink and follow the sketch!
