Spring Brings Hope is a charity collab benefiting Jenna K of MN.
Jenna was diagnosed in Dec of 2009, with Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder,a form of Cancer caused by the anti-rejection medications she received following her transplant. She received a liver transplant in 1997 when she was 7 years old. Jenna is now home from her 1st Semester of college at Bemidji State University in MN, receiving a rigorous chemotherapy treatment for the next 6 months.
100% of proceeds from this kit will be given to Jenna to cover her medical expenses.
Nine designers have joined together to bring you this fun spring kit. These designers have donated 68 papers, 93 elements, 1 full alphabet, and 2 12x12 quick pages.

Each month I find an inspirational artist, post a link to the artist's gallery, and we all find some inspiration to create at least one scrapbook layout or hybrid project.
The fun part of it for me is that I design a paper pack, or a mini-kit inspired by a piece from the featured artist...and give it away free! Find out how/where to pick up the free mini kit by visiting Inspiration Lane's challenge forum HERE.
Here is what inspired my piece (Betsy Thompson's Breakfast archival print)
Here is my layout:
Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful day!
I was helping my dad organize some old photos and came across this one of my mom. My grandpa loved photography and had taken such wonderful photos of my mom as a youngster. It is such a blessing that I have some of these wonderful photos of Mom.

One job I did keep (besides my "real job") is doing quality control at The Studio. I check kits and then if I love them...I make layouts using them. It is a great gig!
I created this layout using Moon Designs kit- I Love You Mommy. I took these photos the other day when my daughter, Kari, was watching cartoons. She happened to be in the one spot that sun was shining in. I used a template from the March 2010 Hawt Mama Templates.
Hope everyone is having a great week!

Oh, the Spring Brings Hope charity collab turned out better than I ever expected. The designers did a FANTASTIC job. Here is a layout I created using the kit. Template by Traci Reed's CT (HawtMamas)...this template was Shannon's.
Thanks so much for stopping by and consider picking up Spring Brings Hope HERE...remember all the proceeds pay for medical expenses for a vibrant freshman in college diagnosed with cancer. Read about Jenna HERE on her CaringBridge site.
