Stamp Out Breast Cancer & Making Strides

What a great weekend Emily & I have had working on the Stamp Out Breast Cancer Day and the Making Strides walk today!  These are a few pictures from our fun.

We want to say thank you to everyone that helped out with our fundraiser on Sat.  Our team raised over $2,000 which went directly to the Making Strides Foundation. 

As is the way with any good crafting day - we had many great raffle items donated by Stampin' Up!, the demonstrators in the group and some local businesses.  This was my project for the raffle.  I found fabric with the Breast Cancer symbol a few weeks ago - so I just had to make one of the cute Savanah bags from Chick-n-Scratch.  I then used the scraps with the Flower Folds die to make these cute pins which the Fashion Police - aka Emily - used as handouts for people wearing the most pink.

Today Emily & I finished off our weekend with the Making Strides walk along the Charles today.  A  beautiful day for a 5.7 mile stroll through downtown Boston and Cambridge.
