It's October! That means it's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We wanted to show our support by showing our Pink!! For the whole month of October, we will be sharing Pink projects created by our Shimmerz Girlz! BUT, we want you to get involved also. We want you to create projects using ANY Pink Shimmerz that you have! Any shade of pink. Then, upload it to the Shimmerz Flickr Group! Make sure and tell us what Shimmerz product you have used! Each Design Team Member will choose their favorite project, and each winner will receive something Pink! We are excited to see what you come up! Stop by all month to see what the Design Team creates using Pink! Let's not just create, but inspire and spread the word. Post it on your blog, and let others know! Let your light Shimmer!

Here is my project for the Shimmerz challenge this month: Hope

I crackled a Maya Road chipboard house with a couple of shades of pink acrylic paint and then Shimmerz Spritz in Ruby. Then stamped a woman (Art by Moonlight) with Stazon onto muslin.

The word 'hope' was felt thickers that I painted with Hottie Pink Blingz, and when dry, darkened the edges with my ink pad for some contrast.
I cut small hearts from upholstery fabric and layered with tulle and organza with a button.

I created the roof peak by cutting apart a flower and painting with Pixie Dust Blingz.

I'll be eager to see your Pink creations!
Boy, this weekend was crazy - loads of fun at the AMM Anniversary Crop! You have till next Monday to enter some of the challenges, the prizes are fabulous!!
