Awareness kit

I can't believe October is almost here. My next kit is to pay tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness month and to those people who cancer affects - all those who have had it, all those who currently have it, and to those who are loved ones to cancer victims. It seems that cancer affects each person somehow. My grandmother, two aunts and cousin are all survivors of cancer. My husband's aunt passed away from cancer a few years ago. Cancer consumes - physically, emotionally, spiritually - on all levels. But I also know that because of cancer, many people have grown closer to loved ones, many people have tried to make their lives more healthy, many have survived. To anyone out there who is having to deal with this terrible disease, my heart goes out to you. I pray for you. This kit is to remind us all to be aware. You are all an inspiration!

Great kit. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for sharing your talents. Even though my husband is currently undergoing chemo treatments for his cancer I will still find someway to use this kit. I may be able to change it to red instead of pink. I know how much people need to be aware of cancer and how it affects everyone. Because 1 in 3 people will be diagnosed with cancer... Thank you so much for making others aware.

I love your idea behind your latest kit. but I am clueless on how to use it. I know I could "download" it but I don't know what to do after that. I can't find where the zip files go in my computer. I would love to use it for my blog during Oct. Even thought the cancer that is effecting my life right now is Colon cancer. My Husband has been battling it for two years now.
Hope you can give me an insight on how a novice can pretty up her blog site. My friend , Meg uses your stuff all the time and says it's easy. ?????
Thanks,
Katrina in AZ

This is truly a beautiful kit. It conveys the beauty of all the women who have died from or survived breast cancer. You have truly done something lovely and thoughtful for those who have loved and lost. Thank you and God Bless you for this fabulous kit.

WillowRaven said...

This is a beautiful kit! I tried to download it however 4shared keeps timing out so I am unable to snag it. Not sure what is going on - have tried last 2 days to download it. It is a wonderful kit - my best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer several years ago and currently is cancer free (yay)!

Christine said...

My sister just did a walk for breast cancer yesterday - not the big walk, but she did 6 miles sponsored by her job. She asked me to scrap her pictures for her birthday. This will be soooo perfect! thank you!!!

Chris said...

Hi Summer, thanks so much for the wonderful Awareness kit which I've downloaded. Just so that you know, I've used some of the papers to make cards which will go to a Breast Cancer awareness group and will then be sent out to women who are suffering with this awful disease. Thanks again for your generosity. I hope your little one is doing ok. Hugs, Chris

Jami {sgtStamper} said...

Amazing!!! Your work is stunning!! You've got some serious talent - thanks for sharing it so generously! I used one these papers on a card yesterday - you can see it on my blog if interested.
hugs, Jami

Melissa said...

Your awareness kit is the most beautiful breast cancer set I have seen. My grandmother died 4 1/2 years ago from the disease and I have not been able to find any scrap product that I felt could be used on the pages I will make as a tribute to her. It may be I could not do it emotionally either. Regardless, your breathtaking art has inspired me to finally touch those pictures. Your designs are so much what my grandmother would love.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart (and the tears on my cheeks.)
