Breast Cancer Awareness Month - the boobs are out!!
Hello everyone, and welcome to another month here at It's A Creative World.
October 2007 is breast cancer awareness month in the UK, and with that in mind, the team at It's A Creative World have been busy getting creative with their boobs! We wanted to do our bit to raise the profile of breast cancer awareness month, and, in addition to our creative efforts, we have set up a Just Giving page where our readers can make a donation to Breakthrough Breast Cancer, one of the UK's leading breast cancer charities. We've set our target at £310 - that's £10 every day throughout October - if we could exceed that amount we'd be absolutely delighted. The donation page will remain active for 3 months until the end of December, and you can donate at any time up until then. Anyone who donates online between October 1st and October 31st will be eligible to win a prize in our draw, which will take place at the beginning of November, to give as many people as possible the chance to donate in October. We already have some fantastic prizes on offer, including a pink scrapbook album, a pink bracelet, an A4 sheet of Zettiology stamps, a £10 M&S voucher, and a £10 NEXT voucher. Further prize details will full details of donors will be added during October.
All of us know someone who, at some time or other, has been affected by breast cancer. Breast awareness means knowing what your breasts look and feel like normally, so you can be aware of any changes and check them out with your doctor as soon as possible. If cancer is diagnosed, prompt treatment offers the best chance of a successful outcome. The message from Breakthrough is this: show your breasts some TLC - Touch, Look, Check.
Before I go any further, a little announcement - we are very proud to welcome yet another FAB lady to the It's a Creative World team today!
The fabulous Charlotte!!
This lady does the most beautiful monochromatic pages and her use of loads of photos on one LO is just inspiring! Of course having the cutest little boy as the subject for her LOs is a bonus. Keep an eye on this lady cause she just oozes inspiration!
So, on to the main event - the Creative World girls get their boobs out!! We allowed ourselves a completely free rein with our different interpretations of this challenge - I suggested that everyone should scrap their boobs, and the girls have risen admirably to this. Without further delay, I am delighted to present a feast of bosom!!

And so, loyal readers and new friends, we throw down the gauntlet to you all, and ask you to make October the month that you SCRAP YOUR BOOBS!!! If you're feeling brave enough, email a photo of your interpretation of our challenge to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will add any photos submitted to our flickr slideshow. As an added incentive, anyone who submits a photo of their project will have their name entered into a draw for a fabulous prize, this gorgeous selection of pink scrapping loveliness put together by our very own Andrea.
We also hope to be able to offer a few spot prizes throughout October, so please keep checking back, and please help us raise some money for an extremely worthwhile cause. If you have anything you'd like to offer for our prize draw, please email us at email@example.com - we'd love to hear from you.
