I am so excited to be a part of the Think Pink blog hop. I wanted to be apart of spreading the word about Breast Cancer awareness to all women and men. I found some myths and facts about Breast Cancer from www.baltimoresun.com
Check these out, they are really interesting:
Myth: Only women get breast cancer.
Fact: 1,970 men will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2010.
Myth: If your grandmother, mother or sister had breast cancer you will get it, too.
Fact: Only 15 percent to 20 percent of women with breast cancer have a family history of the disease.
Myth: If no one in your family has had breast cancer, you won't get it either.
Fact: 80 percent to 85 percent of women with breast cancer have no family history of the disease.
Myth: Your genetic risk of getting breast cancer comes only from your mother's side of the family.
Fact: Half of your genes come from your mother and half from your father. Therefore both sides of your family influence your risk equally.
Myth: Only "old" women get breast cancer.
Fact: 25 percent of women with breast cancer are younger than 50.
Please take time today to share with all the women in your life how much they mean to you and some of the facts you learned here today.
Okay on to the projects I made for this special occasion and of BLOG CANDY!!!!!. I hope you enjoy them.
I have made three special projects for this hop.
The 1st is a Think Pink gift box. I found round gift boxes at Joanne’s for a dollar, painted it pink, and then added paper from Making Memories Breast Cancer Awareness paper pack sold a Michael’s. Then I added ribbon around where the 2 different papers meet and around the body.
. Finally I finished it off with some flowers on the top of the box lid.
I also used the same Making Memories flowers from the 1st project and finished it off with a ribbon.
The 3rd project I made I am so excited about how it turned out. I found these card board coasters at Michaels in the $1 section, and get this all $1 items were 70% off, so I ended up getting them for $0.30. Can you believe that? I wanted to make a pink project for my daughter’s bedroom, so I came up with this wall hanging.
The 1st step was to cover all the coasters with paper, then I sanded the edges down so the paper fit perfectly on the coasters.
