Some Delicious Layouts

Kit: Season of Giving collab for Chris by the amazing and wonderful Gingerscraps designers

This week, we have a special kit that was created by our designers, called Season of Giving. Kathy Winters spearheaded the collab, and how she described it to the CT is perfect, I think, for why the kit was created:

For those of you that might not know, Chris’s (altimasport) brother John has been diagnosed with stage 3 Laryngeal Cancer and is fighting hard to survive this horrible disease. He is currently recovering from surgery to remove his entire voice box and will be facing more treatment soon to remove cancer found in lymph nodes. Chris has been working on various fund raisers to support her brother and has also been keeping vigil by his side to lend whatever emotional and spiritual support she can provide. We wanted to show our support in some small way so we put together this collaboration kit to benefit John.

I’ll be honest. While I was writing the post for this last night, I was tearing up. I had to stop and take a break. It was those good tears, though. Red heart being part of this community!

This was the layout I created for this. The picture is from a couple years old but I still love it! The template came with the kit, and well, I love it!

A Mess

I’m going through and editing a few things, so ignore any mess that you might see!

I’m changing out categories, and all of that goodness!! 😀

And I think I am finished. Going more simplistic with my categories in 2014, and I’m starting a little earlier than usual!

I hope your Thanksgiving has been amazing, and full of love. If you’re not in the States, I hope your Thursday is wonderful! BIG stuff coming tomorrow from Gingerscraps!
