Welcome to our Cancer Awareness Blog Hop!

Hello Hoppers! Thank you for joining us today!! I hope you have arrived from Lynn's Blog! Didn't you love her project? She is so very talented! If you didn't arrive from Lynn's blog, please go to the start so you don't miss anything!
I am one of the lucky ones! My Dad is a prostate cancer SURVIVOR! Every year when he again gets a clean bill of health it rejuvenates me. I know how lucky we are. Creative Cuts and More is donating 20% of all awareness ribbon products sales in September and October! How great is that? We have an awareness ribbon section on the site to make ordering easier. I decided to make an Awareness Ribbon Window 8 x 8 Album Chipboard Set. I ordered the cover and pages separately though. I wanted the cover cut in blue because that is the color for Prostate Cancer.
I used the Heart #2 Mini a lot through the album. They are the perfect size and what says love better than a heart? I love my Dad SO MUCH!
I had a hard time getting the acetate cover to show. You can see it on the left. I love these heavy acetate covers. They really protect the album! The Tag Trio set is MY FAVORITE! Get ready to see this on lots of things LOL I love how they look like tickets! The ribbon is just from my stash, several different brands. The heart charm and the brads are both Making Memories.
Real men really do wear pink! For the journaling tag I used a SU! punch to make the corners on a scrap of paper. There is another Tag again!
I used the Diamond #1 and the Awareness Ribbon #2 for these pages. I had my pages and dividers cut in Kraft and Cream alternating them.
My Dad really is my hero. He has accomplished so many things in his life. I thought the award was perfect! This Decorative Label is my favorite! I always use it on cards! This is a first for matting a picture. It won't be the last! I love it!
The tabs are from another SU! punch. I'm sorry I don't know the names of them but your SU! demo. will :-)
There is that Heart #2 again! The font is Quickutz.
The wine Bottle is also a Quickutz die.
For these pages I used the Hinge #3. I love that die! The brads are from The Paper Studio.
There are a few more pages in the album but I don't want to bore you guys!
