JustRite's Be Strong: Stamping For a Cause!

Hello there friends! JustRite is introducing their first clear set called, Be Strong. I love the option of clear stamps for the simple reason of being able to interchange the sentiments and knowing exactly where you are putting them! : ) So I am super excited about this release!

I love the beautiful frames and fonts of this set....... there are so many options here.
As some of you may know, 3 years ago we lost a teacher at my school to pancreatic cancer. She was only 52 years old and left behind 2 daughters. She had stomach aches constantly, had trouble eating, and after much prodding from us, she went to the doctor. It didn't take them long to diagnose her. By then it was too late. She died weeks after being diagnosed. Since then the staff and I walk for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. Our teachers have all experienced cancer with other family and friends as well and it is an extremely touching and personal event for us. To hear the stories at the luminaria ceremony and see how terribly it has affected the lives of people is heart wrenching.
I am so fortunate to work with such an amazing group of people, who truly are my second family. We need to provide to one another exactly these things, Hope, Faith, and Strength. Those that are fighting this disease, as well as their families, need to know they are not alone in their battle.
I hope you take the time this weekend to stop by the other designer's blogs and see their beautiful encouraging cards.......

Michele, this is a beautiful layout and of course also is near and dear to my heart as we have cancer rip through our family. My Dad passed away due to it, and my Mom is a cancer survivor who is now a lead volunteer and VP of her local American Cancer Society. She has been on many RFL committees and walks every year as a survivor. I was lucky enough to be home last spring when they did their event! My sister now is added to that list! Thanks for sharing such a beautiful page! I really like that this is a clear set.
