October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As women, I’m sure that all of us have been touched by breast cancer in one way or another, personally, either a family member or a friend. Even though great strides have been made in fighting this disease, more advances are needed. I am very honored to be a part of this new Minis on a Mission by My Favorite Things. This one is called Think Pink. For every set of Think Pink that is purchased, 50% of the retail proceeds (and 25% of wholesale proceeds) will be going directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and breast cancer initiatives. Please visit their website and have a look around!

In my family we used to make it a girls day event to get our mammograms together. Myself, my mother, sister and aunt would all go together. We are now all off schedule and no longer get to go together, but there are those periodic reminders from my mother — it’s time for our mammograms, do you need an appointment? Then I have to reminder her that I’m off schedule with them now. So this is my reminder to you, visit your doctor, get your mammograms and/or ultrasounds (for those of us who get ultrasounds over mammograms).

Reminder

The image was stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and colored with Copic Markers. I picked some scraps of BasicGrey Stella Ruby and sewed all the pieces on a panel of SU Night of Navy. The sentiment medallion is made from covering a thin chipboard coaster with the designer paper and then using the Cuttlebug for the bottom piece and SU circle punches for the top 2.
