Now, we have an incredibly meaningful creation from our amazing G45 Ambassador, Laura Denison. Read below to see the inspiration behind this gorgeous project. You could even win this project by donating to the Susan G Komen site Laura set up!
"October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Many of you have been directly touched by Breast cancer, either yourself, a family member or a close friend. This year, I decided to create a new project to honor those who have been touched by this disease.
I have always loved fairy tales. One of my favorites was The Princess and The Pea. This project, Pink Princess and the Pea, is a stack of 6 mattress boxes in a canopy bed frame. Each mattress box contains a “Tag-olio” to hold photos and journaling. This project seems to “fit” with the encouragement of self exams. The pea represents the lump some have found during a self exam. I can only image the panic of discovering that lump in your breast.
I have set a up a donation website through Susan G Komen Passionately Pink for a Cure program. who makes a donation on that webpage will be entered into a drawing to win the original project shown or one of 3 kits to make your own Pink Princess and the Pea. Thank you beyond measure to all who are willing to donate. 100% of the donations on this website go to the Susan G Komen Foundation, a leader in the charge against Breast Cancer. Through this site, you will receive a receipt for your donation and information about how your money aids in the fight against Breast Cancer. (The site is secure and no money passes through any one person’s hands.)
A huge thank you to Graphic 45 for posting this here on there blog!" ~Laura

Next, we have this stunning layout by the incredible Solange. We love her inspiration for this layout and the incredible result when she tried out this amazing idea from Pinterest.
"I love Pinterest, it's a great source of inspiration. When I found this image on Pinterest I pinned it immediately on my inspiration board. I am in love for butterflies and I fulled my canvas with them.
I used Botanical Tea collection to made this mixed media canvas that I called of 'Blue Butterflies.'"
