Finally we are at day three of Skipping Stones Design's annual "Blogs for Boobies"! There have been three days of hopping, complete with fabulous creations by extremely talented paper-crafters available for bidding on. All proceeds from the auctioning of these creations will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to aid in research of a cure for breast cancer. Last year the "Blogs for Boobies"  FUN-draiser made over $1,100! This year we are aiming for $1,500, and YOU can help! How? One of two ways:

1) Purchasing any of the fabulous Skipping Stones Designs. For every set sold, SSD will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation. You can shop HERE. How about this one called "Cancer Schmancer"?

Or, you could choose the "Bras #1" and "Bras #2" featured in my project. This creation has a fun charm pin with tiny shrink bras, along with a wonderful satin-lined box to keep it in. A great gift for any woman who's life has been changed by breast cancer.

2) Bid on any of the creations being posted over the three hop days, August 15th-17th. Bidding will continue until August 23rd, 8 pm MT, at which time the highest bid will win that item. Bidding must be done on the blog where the desired creation is located. Leave your bid in the comment section (usually at the end of the on the "Post a Comment"). A $5 starting bid is recommended. Add your email address in this comment as your agreement to the bid. Keep watch, you may need to "up" your bid to win the item. Placing a high bid from the start can help ensure your win. Oh, and bonus...your bid includes your shipping for the item! 

For more detailed info, visit the SSD blog. Here is the list for the day three blogs:

Rae Ann Barthel

Karen Baker

Pam Hornschu (You are here!)

Remember, you have until August 23rd, 8 pm MT, to bid on your favorite projects (including MINE...hee hee) by leaving your comments with bid amount. Keep checking back as sometimes blog comments are moderated by the designer, and do not show up right away. Have fun hopping, shopping, and bidding! Support those boobies!

Hi Pam, This is beyond stunning! Thank you ever so much for letting me know about my mess up with the list. I couldn't get the formatting to work & my head is a mess. My Father in Law is in hospital, fighting cancer, of all things...

P.s. I wondered if you knew you were "no reply" on blogger? There's a great article here, if you are curious. Thanks again for your help!
