Think Pink ...

... for Breast Cancer Awareness. This campaign seems to have the biggest and best coverage this year more than before, so it seems to me anyway. Even "The Land" rural newspaper has gone pink.
Tupperware (did I mention I am a Tupperware demonstrator) supports the Breast Cancer Foundation through the sale of their pink enviro bags (just $2) and for the month of October the pink sports bottles ($26.95).
I am truly astounded by the statistics of how many women are diagnosed with BC and even more so how young so many are. It's really scary and I'm guilty of thinking it will never happen to me but on the more positive side, at least treatments are quite successful these days. I understand the vital importance of early detection, and yes, I do check my breasts regularly.
Now on to scrapping ... still with a PINK theme.
This month's Diva's Cybercrop was held earlier to coincide with Pink Ribbon day and all the challenges had a pink theme.

#1 - to use numbers (oh, I dont think we needed pink here) ...

#2 - to use at least 5 different pink things not including pink c/stock or pink pp and the title to be inspired by a song ...

#3 - journalling - lots of it in our own handwriting about something/someone or an event etc that has changed our lives, for better or for worse. Can include one 6x4 photo ...

Diva Vicky also set an extra challenge ... a pink bra challenge ... to create a poppet wearing a pink bra. There's some really awesome poppets in the Diva's gallery so far. I started mine and was going ok til I couldn't find a pic of my face/head that was suitable and then my black ink cartridge isn't working (empty) so I cant print anything either. The CC is running til midnight tomorrow though so I'll see if I can get one printed at my MIL's. I've never made one but always been intrigued by them. Funny, quirky little fun things.
In other news ... oh, I've injured my little toe on my left foot. Wanna see ...

Nice bruise 'eh. Hurt like buggery when I did it (kicked it on the highchair) and it's been aching a bit but I'll live. I think the bruising is already starting to fade (now about 30 hrs later) so that's good.
Well, there's washing to come off the line and dinner to prepare - duty calls so til next time ... THINK PINK!!!

Hope your toe gets better soon Helen.
Thanks again for dropping by my little bloggy. Always nice to 'see' you.

Your LOs are looking fab as always. I'm afraid that I was just too tired for the CC this weekend :(

Take care and bye for now.
