I made this mini book to be auctioned at 'Crop For a Cure' tomorrow, an all day scrapping event organised by Scrappers Warehouse to raise funds for breast cancer research. As Ben's mum died from breast cancer at the age of 46, when Ben was 23, it is a cause close to our hearts and I offered to contribute something.
So I made this book all arty and stuff, LOL, with a selection of quotes I love. There are a few little spots for the new owner to add photos or notes as well. Some quotes are from the 'She' book by Compendium Publishing, some are from Storypeople, and others are just quotes I love and have collected. Lots of pictures to share, more as a record really, as I will likely never see the actual book again after tomorrow! Unless of course I can't let it go and buy it back for myself ;) If you want to read the quotes you can click on each photo to enlarge it.
This is the artist's note that I included inside the back cover:
"This book has been created to be shared, added-to and touched. It was made to celebrate the emotions and strengths of women all over the world, in particular those women who are fighting or have fought a battle with breast cancer, including my own mother-in-law. Win or lose, such women are a testament to the strength, beauty and life that each of us carry within. She deserves to be celebrated, to be loved."
