Fight for a Cure

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's Larelyn from Handmade From My Heart back with my second project as October's Guest Designer.

October is Cancer Awareness month.  Although most of the attention is on a cure for breast cancer, we must remember that there are so many other types that need attention and funding in order to find a cure.  The fight to cure Ovarian Cancer is very close to my heart.  I lost my sister-in-law who was also my best friend to ovarian cancer.  She fought such a valiant battle - I was with her for every appointment and treatment her final year.  I wouldn't trade those final months for anything as we laughed on her good days and cried for what was to come.  So, in order to honor her, I chose to use the teal ribbon for my project.  My nephew, her youngest son is a captain in the fire department.  They painted one of their trucks pink to send the awareness message but they added a huge banner that reads "ALL PEOPLE, ALL CANCERS" and that is my message as well.

Here's my project:

 I used SVG Cutting Files' Awareness Ribbon Candy Tube Holder.   I also used Jaded Blossom's Candy Tubes, Flag Dies, and Fight for a Cure stamps set.  I embellished with a little VersaMagic Chalk Ink, some twine, and Queen & Co. bubbles.
