Going Pink xx

Hello my lovelies

Sorry for lateness in my post, I thought I had it scheduled but woops, deleted it instead lol!

So its time for another Challenge at Dream Valley Challenges and this time we have a nice easy challenge for you all to get stuck right into!


Just an easy easy, make your creation PINK!! Thats all! 

As breast cancer is close to my heart and I know most women, I thought it was only right to highlight it! The latest statistics say 1 in 2000 women could develop by the time their 29 and 22 could get it by their 60s! And 55% of these women and men are too scared to get check out! It only takes 2 mins in the shower to check yourself and a 15 min visit to the doc! 

For more info check out Breast Cancer Care or Breakthrough

Enough of the heavy!
Now something PINK to get you inspired to craft!

I used one of my fav Crafts and Me digi's coloured with promarkers and some oldie First Edition papers then added some flowers, pearls, ribbon and lots of glitter!

I would like to enter the following Challenges
Crafting for all Seasons - Things With Wings
Digital Tuesday - Say it wit Flowers
