Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop

Hello!  Welcome to the Scrapbook Blessings Club Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop!  If you hopped over from Cristina's blog you are right on track.  If you are just joining us make sure you start at the beginning over on the Scrapbook Blessings Club blog so you don't miss a thing :-)

It's October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I'm sure that many have been touched by this dreaded disease. This hop is just a little reminder that mammograms are important for early detection of breast cancer. So, with that being said, the talented Design Team and Facebook members of Scrapbook Blessings Club are ready to strut their stuff and show you just how easy it is to use the Tic Tac Toe Board.

I've used the bottom 3 going across:  pink beads, Stickles, and lace.

5" square cardbase in white
Bugaboo digital stamp
swiss dot embossing folder
Elegant Edges Cricut cart - snowflake - oblong frame feature @ 4 1/2"
Cotton candy Stickles
pink sead beads
Glossy Accents (to adhere the beads)
pink decorative lace trim
The Paper Studio - Lola & Luca stack - green dot paper
The Paper Studio - Uptown Flair stack - circle patterned paper
colored pencils

For one lucky person that comments, there will be a little prize given by Lynne Kirsch.  The prize is a cross which she made using her Embroidery Machine.  Also, THE STAMPING CHEF is giving away the Fighter digi stamp, too!  Just leave a comment and we would love if you followed the blogs but it is not a requirement.

If you would like to strut your stuff and make a card using the tic tac toe card game above, please be sure and share it in the special album on the Scrapbook Blessings Club Facebook group, for a second prize offered by Lynne.

Thanks for hopping along with us and hopefully playing along with us on the fb page!  Your next stop is Marilyn's blog
