This week the theme is Breast Cancer Awareness. Most of us have been effected by breast cancer through friends or family, or even personally. I had a personal scare a few years ago when I started having breast pain and found a lump. I was relieved when I find out I have fibrocystic breasts. Fibrocystic breast changes are normal and harmless. They are not cancer, and they do not increase your chance of getting breast cancer. Experts think that fibrocystic breast changes are linked to the hormone changes that happen during your menstrual cycle. I may be sharing a little too much info, but breast cancer is serious. It is so important to be aware because early detection can increase the chances of surviving breast cancer.
With my project I knew I wanted to make something uplifting and encouraging, but I wasn't quite sure what. After two days of playing in the little blue room, I ended up with a hot air balloon. Hope floats.
This balloon is huge! It measures around 15 inches tall with the little hanging basket. The basket can hold goodies or a small gift.
If you find some crafty time this week I hope you'll play along and link your creation at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
