Hi everyone and welcome to the October Challenges. Did you know that October is BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH? That means its time to check your boobies either by visiting your GP or by doing a thorough self examination. Don’t put it off and keep up with it every month just to be sure.
This month I am hosting the Inspiration challenge over at The Lilypad. I would love to do something special this month and suggest a little nod to BCA and what better way is there to show our support than by including a Pink BowPink Ribbon/Ric Rac or a Strip/Band of Pink Paper to our pages.

If you wanted to take it a step further you could create a page that is predominately pink too so long as you have a bow or ribbon in it! How amazing would it be to see The Lilypad Gallery bursting in every hue of pink imaginable! Oh my heart would be full!

Here’s my page. I created a predominately pink page and added two pink ribbons, 1 bow and a strip of pink paper just to cover all the possible challenge criteria hehe

For every page that is created showcasing a pink ribbon, bow or pink strip of paper, I will donate $1 AUD to the NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION here in Australia. This amazing organisation offered lots of support and information to me during my breast cancer fight. To make it even more incredible our lovely Laura McCandless has offered to match my donation by donating her portion to a foundation of her choice, we will keep you posted on which one, but how awesome is that! As a community we could raise a sizeable amount for this cause. So if you decide to join us make sure to share your page in the October Inspiration Challenge thread to be counted.
For all the challenge details scoot over to the Challenge Pad at TLP and join us for some Pretty in Pink fun!

I can't wait to see your pink ribbon pages everyone!

Hugs Em x
