Operation Julie's Smile blog hop Oct. 7-10

Hello, friends:}


Today is a BIG day in blogland--we are having a benefit blog hop for Julie Ranae. If you came here from Nicole Rixon's blog, then you are in the right spot. If not, you may want to start from the beginning at the Sweet Stamp Shop's blog and take your time! You have ALL WEEKEND to hop with us and win prizes!! 


Many of my followers know that I am on the SSS and PDCC with her....and I would consider Julie as one of my best friends! She is always there with advice, love, support, encouragement....she is the BESTEST:} I wanted to share a small story about this hop and Julie-- 


Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop put together this benefit after finding out about this situation and before Julie Ranae knew it, it took flight! Because she is an event organizer by trade, she has taken on the job of organizing all of the blogs in this hop as her way of ‘working overtime’ for what she needs, the same as if she were able to work overtime at an outside job to pay for the work to be done. It is the goal of all of these generous friends & sponsors to help make this situation more do-able for our friend so that she can share a brand new smile with all of us soon. If there is anything you can do to help with a financial donation, there is a donation button ready for you to click.  Any amount is appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500.

Here is a bit of information about our prizes: We have over $2500 in prizes donated by very generous companies [a complete list of sponsors will be listed on the SSS blog].

Prizes will be drawn for the following: 
1) from Blog comments left 
2) from Paypal Donation list {donation button found below or on my sidebar}
For my creation, I used my Sweet Tooth stamp set by SSS. I thought it would be appropriate! I saw an add from My Favorite Things stating a deal that was the "triple scoop special". It made me think of Julie--she's triple scoop sweet:} Then I saw a sketch by Ingrid that I wanted to use. And this is what I came up with--LOVE it! LOVE the papers and the triple scoops--love those alphas {by My Little Shoebox}!!! And I just LOOOOVE these ribbons, available at The Ribbon Carousel!

That's it for me--be sure to stop by the next blog on this hop::: CAS-ual Fridays! If you get lost at any time, just stop by the SSS blog for a complete list of participants! Make sure you leave a comment here before you go so that you can have a chance at the amazing prizes up for grabs and if you can--please make a donation so we can help bring back a new smile for Julie! And don't forget that you have ALL WEEKEND to leave comments and love for everyone, donate, and win prizes


THANKS so much for stopping--and THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all your support for our friend, Julie!! This means a lot to her--and to me:} Be blessed!

not sure what I like best... the scoops, the fact that is all pink or that evokes a little vintage feel due to the paper/color combos. Very sweet indeed.
