Link Up for Pink's

Hello and welcome to Link Up for Pink’s first “Pink Hope” Blog Hop!!  As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but here at LUFP, we want to bring Breast Cancer Awareness to our crafty friends all year long. We want to get the message out to all women about Breast Cancer and the importance of early detection with regular self-breast exams and mammograms.

If you arrived from Sarah's blog you are on track.  If you want to hop along, please start at the Link Up for Pink's blog.
We are so happy that you are joining us today.  The Design Team and invited guests will share beautiful projects and most of all raise awareness.

Our sponsors today are Scrapbook Stamp Society and Touched by a Butterfly. One lucky winner will receive a $12 voucher to Scrapbook Stamp Society and a BCA Printable Digital Kit from Touched by a Butterfly.

We also played with a fantastic sketch designed especially for LUFP by Melissa Craig from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Here is my project:
This is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. I am coming up to my 5 year milestone at the end of October. I am very happy that I have survived this terrible disease and I hope that everyone will get checked. Early detection is the key!


So make sure you leave a comment on each stop. So let’s get hopping, celebrate courage and strength, and most importantly spread some Pink Hope. Your next stop on this incredible hop is Zeni. Just in case you got lost along the way - here are Pink Hope's participants:
