Welcome to the Crafty Friends Who Care blog hop. We are so glad you could join us for Day 2 of this very special hop. We have more fabulous projects for you. But the most important thing about this is to raise awareness about bone marrow donations to help Leukemia patients.

Bone marrow donation technology has come a long way, and is now as simple as giving blood. So we are trying to raise awareness and get people to register at to be a bone marrow donor. And why are we doing this your might ask? To help a friend a fellow crafter, Liz Decade. Liz is battling 2 different forms of acute Leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. We are hoping that this hop will help her to find a match. You can see her story at

Even if you are not a match for Liz, you can still help her. You see bone marrow registrations drives are expensive, you have to pay for each person who is registered, and Liz is trying to raise money for bone marrow drives and medical expenses (it costs a lot of money to get a transplant). You can donate to Liz at All of the money donated will go to bone marrow drives or medical expenses.

And we have some wonderful sponsors who have donated prizes for our hop.
Sweet Stamping Treats Digital Stamps, Trendy Twine, MB Treasurista, Paper Piecings by Nikki, Inspired Stamps, My Pink Stamper, Peachy Keen Stamps and Market Street Stamps have all donated prizes to this hop. In order to be eligible for one of these prizes you must comment on every blog in this hop! There are other requirements for the sponsors so please see Liz's blog post for more details.

If you are coming from Carla - blog you are on the right track. If you want to start from the beginning please go to Liz's blog (

  Here is my project for this hop:

I altered this balsa wood box for a friend of mine, as she needed a container to keep her meds in, but she did not want it to look like a pill container, so I covered the box with Graphic 45 Bonticella papers and she loved butterfly's, so I fussy cut the ones from the paper! : )  I also mod podged the box, which made it stronger, so she could put it in her purse. 

Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to go to and find out how to become a marrow donor. Your next stop is Beckie's blog at
Here is the entire hop list for day one in case you get lost:

It is Thursday!!! Welcome to the Scrappin Place!  Well it has been a long time since I posted!  As some of my scrappy friends know, I am now employed full time and I while I enjoy it, it has cut into my scrappy time!!! I will get this figured out!  Now I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Hubby got me a card and some chocolate!!! Yummy!!! Now here is the card I made for him, which he said he really liked:

I used some red cardstock from my scrappin stash, the Be Mine paper stack from DCWV, the stamp is Tattered Angels, white ink and white embossing powder.  I do like the way this card turned out, because as you all know, my scrappy friends, I am not the best at making cards!

Stay tuned to the Scrappin Place, this weekend there is a blog hop for my friend Liz and of course a new Challenge over at Getting Scrappy!!! Can't wait to see what all of you come up with for the Challenge!

Sending you all scrappy hugs!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday my scrappy friends!! Welcome to another Getting Scrappy Challenge!  Our challenge this time is "Love of Chocolate"  Now, I love, love and love chocolate!  But being the person who is always the one taking the pictures, I had to figure out what pics to use, as I have only had one layout with pics! So, here is my take on "Love of Chocolate"

My hubby and son always get the Chocolate covered Mickey Mouse Ice cream when we go to Disneyland and this time I was able to get pictures of them eating them!  I used Doodlecharm for all of the hearts on this layout.  I glued lace to the back then put the heart on pink cardstock.  For the title, I used the Gypsy Font, that I welded together and of course had to use the Mickey and Friends Font for the Mickey Mouse.  Now the paper that I used was given to me by our wonderful leader, Amanda along with the buttons that I used as well.  I also used our wonderful sponsor - Joy from Joy's Life stamps and let me tell you these stamps are just wonderful!!!! Thank you Joy!!!! Daddy and Robby are the perfect "pear" to me : )

Thanks for stoping by the scrappin place and I am sending you all scrappy hugs!
