More Becca Feekin's Kit Club for October!

Good morning!  Today is the last project I created using Becca Feekin's new October release. It uses soft colors, Spellbinder's dies (Decorative Labels eight and Vintage Frame Label and Spool Topper) , pearls, and that gorgeous sentiment in an incredible font.  
I hope you have enjoyed the projects from this release! Today will be another day of incredible projects! Be sure to check them out!

****************************
Remember I said I had a bit of news?  My Cort has been part of a wonderful campaign called, Changing the Face of Beauty. It has been started and promoted by Katie Driscoll and Steve English. I've been lucky enough to meet them and have my daughter a part of this. The goal of this campaign is to get special needs kids out there as much as possible. In advertising, media etc.  The more people see our kids, the more acceptance there will be. Channel 7 news (ABC) contacted Katie and Steve to do a story about this campaign. They also wanted a mom and their child.....that's where Cort and I come in. How lucky are we?
So we had the experience of a lifetime!  That's me being interviewed by Karen Meyer, and the camera man setting me up with a microphone. 
And while Katie took pictures of my girl....the camera man videoed like crazy! The piece will air sometime in late OCtober, early November. 
On top of all of that good news, my girl is going to model for an Etsy shop....honestly it is like a dream come true.  Who would have thought this journey would have come to this destination? My Cortney a model?  People viewing her in a totally different light.  It's amazing. It's heartwarming. The stars have aligned for her.....for me. I can't express how much this whole journey has meant to me. And I appreciate you allowing me to share it with you.

Congratulations for you and your daughter. She is one beautiful young lady. I'm glad that someone is interested in placing challenged children out in the media. The purpose behind it is truly a great idea.
