I wanted to let you know about a special kit at Scrap Orchard! Have you heard about it?
I have to tell you a little of the back story first… The Sunshine Girls have this tradition of celebrating one another’s birthdays by collecting up some cash and buying something nice for the birthday girl (you may have seen what they got me on my other blog). Well, it was Shauna’s birthday and we were thinking up ideas for her when something tragic happened to a friend of hers. I’ll let her tell you more about it in her own words:
Sincerely touched… the only two words that can describe how I felt when I received this gift from some of my dearest friends in this designing community, The Sunshine Girls. The gift came in response to a request that I had for my birthday. Instead of a gift card for some digi goodies, I asked my dear friends to contribute to a small fund that I had started for a friend of mine. A friend who had recently lost her dh to the war in Iraq. it wasn’t the first first friend that my husband and I have lost to this war, unfortunately it will in all likelihood not be the last. But each time we lose a friend we try and support the family as best we can, and I thought it the least that I could do to send her a small something from me and my dear friends.
In response to my request, not only did these wonderful designers send me my gift to forward on to my friend, they also surprised me with this GORGEOUS kit to sell and to raise even more money for her and her children. Sincerely touched…and why I named the kit what I did… a gift FROM friends, to support and give a gift to another friend, isn’t that what it’s all about?
I wanted to give you a little peak at this kit and encourage you to head over to Scrap Orchard to pick it up. Here are the pretty papers:
