Digi Scraps Drive-In Charity Scrapathon Blog Train!

October is Breast Cancer awareness month, and you've probably noticed pink everywhere - businesses from office supplies to donut shoppes have been creating products specially designed to raise awareness ad funds to this important cause. And the ladies at Digi Scraps Drive-In have stepped up to the plate. Not only have the created a beautiful charity collab kit, but they built an entire weekend event around it.

The Charity Scrapathon runs from October 21 o 24. Anyone can scrap along, but to be eligible for the prizes, you need to have purchased the charity collab kit.

And WOW these prizes! You can earn coupons, a site collab, and a chance to win Jen C Designs or C.W. Picket and Company's entire store!

When you purchase this kit, your $6 goes entirely to Breast Cancer research (after Paypal fees), gets you stunning collab kit (and it's not just pink) And a chance to win coupons, another kit, and perhaps an entire store (now that's a deal!)

Feast your eyes on the beautiful kit:

You can pick it up at DIgi SCraps Drive In, and remember all proceeds (after Paypal fees) are going to breast cancer research.

Of course we had to get the word out about this even as much as possible, and so we decided to launch the event with a Blog Train. Travel this train and you will collect beautiful brag book pages and even a set of blogwear. The train starts on the DSDI Blog and ends in the DSDI forums. Some of our team members live in other timezones, so be patient if all the contributions aren't posted yet - they will be.

Here is my contribution:

Anyway I return with the news that RGE and LRS are closing and having sales. WAH!!! The good news is that once Jane is well enough to start designing again (and pray that it is soon) both of the stores will open again.

So if you love a bargain please keep on reading!

A month of speed scraps at DSDI :)

If you love to speed scrap then you should head on over to DSDI for a Drag Race!

Every day for the month of July you can participate in a speed scrap. AND at then if you participate enough you can earn some GC's to spend in the DSDI Store.

Here is the schedule and if you click on it you will be taken directly to the Drag Race Forum.

I've particpated in two so far, and here are my pages for them.

I used Shine on by Mad Genius Designs for this one. Click on the preview below to snag it in the DSDI shop.

Jen C Designs Just Another Day was perfect for this page about that missing pitch fork in our garden. I had been looking for it for ages, and when DH moved the old caravan out I found it. I then completely forgot where I had found it. I just could not find again when I needed it. Then one day I found it again, no wonder it was hard to find.
