Fight Like a Girl Blog Hop

I am so excited to be part of this blog hop this year.  If you came from Tina's Blog then you are on right on track, if you did not start from the beginning you can start HERE.
   
One of my friends, that I have known from elementary school found out this year that she has breast cancer.  My friend, Lori is an amazing lady, she has to be one of the most positive people I know.  She keeps us updated on her dr appts and made us smile, laugh, cry and chuckle along the way.  I am happy to say, she is a survivor!!

Last month Lori and her friends got together and walked for the Cure.  It was the first time attending this walk for myself and I was amazed and humbled by the experience.  There were people that were walking along side the survivors, the ones still going through treatment and people walking in memory of their loved ones.  The amount of people that came out for this walk was AMAZING to say the least.  When we were walking up a hill, all you saw was the road just packed full of pink and white shirts, and there were people along side the road cheering us on and applauding us as we went by, it was just amazing to see all the support.

The round green circle was actually a fan or paddle they handed out, I cut off the handle and thought it was perfect for a scrapbook layout.  I added a bow to the little digital image, Lori had a cute pink bow in her hair the day of the walk so I wanted to add that to the image.  Hope you like it - I know I will cherish spending that day with a friend.

Your next stop is Amanda

Here is the line up for the hop in case you get lost.

    The layout is beautiful! Love the colors too, I just had my annual exam, thanks to Heavenly Father everything came out fine, but as women we need to support each other and tell one another to get our montly exams, get checked out by your doctor, I know its scary sometimes, but we have to do it !!!!

    Lnda - love this layout. Thanks for a great idea for my BFF's Relay for Life booth next year. We want to take pictures of the teams and for a donation to the American Cancer Society they can make a scrapbook page to remember the day. Going to scrap lift your layout so they can make this one if they choose to. TFS
