This week CAS-ual Fridays is participating in a very special benefit blog hop for Julie Ranae. You can read Julie's story in her own words on her blog Julie's Open Window. Because it's a special week, CAS-ual Fridays has a special challenge inspired by Julie Ranae.
CFC23: Inspiration challenge. Create a Clean And Simple project using the quote as your inspiration OR use the quote as your sentiment.
When I read Julie's story and saw the outpouring of love and support from the papercrafting community, I was so moved. I really wanted to make something very special and encouraging, uplifting and hopeful for Julie's challenge. My creation emerged from the inspiration I drew from FTL161 from the Clean & Simple blog:
and the Stampin' Royalty Challenge #92.
I hope with all of my heart that contributions to Julie's cause are abundant, and that she gets her smile back very, very soon. Please check out the CAS-ual Fridays blog, and do what you can if you are so moved.
Thanks for stopping. Have a wonderful day.
