Not only is October the month where we celebrate Halloween, it’s also more importantly, Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Breast Cancer Awareness is a cause dear to my heart. My Grandmother was a Breast Cancer Survivor and I also work for a company who develops breast cancer treatment technology. So when I saw that we were featuring Checks in the Mail Breast Cancer Awareness products by Laura Kelly for this month’s design team project, I couldn’t be more excited!
As a Laura Kelly Design Team Member, I received product included in this post. All opinions are my own.
Laura sent us a generous package filled to the max with lot’s of pink goodies! As always, she wrapped them in the cutest packaging. Everything was so cute that I decided they’d be perfect for a Survivor Gift Bucket. I wanted to include my youngest in this project and turn it into a learning experience so I recruited my little helper. He knows my father died from Cancer, but I never really talked to him about his Great Grandmother’s Cancer. So this little project provided the perfect opportunity to share with him a little bit about his Great Grandmother. We talked about her strength through her treatments and above all else, her faith in God for her healing. We also talked about the importance of providing support and prayer for those affected. It was a great little lesson!
Breast Cancer Survivor Gift Bucket
After we had our little heart to heart, we started on the gift bucket.
Let’s take a closer look at all the fun goodies Laura sent:
- Survivor Leather Check Book Cover
- Survivor Coin Purse
- Survivor Debit Caddy
- Custom Udderly Smooth Lotion
Adorable Mom’s Busy Year Planner
A fun Pink themed DIY Craft Kit and AdornIt Tags plus lots of felt and tassels! Everything we needed to create a perfect little gift basket.
We started by embellishing the little planner included in the kit with die cuts and tags. We even made bookmarks out of the tags and ribbon! Next, we added a bit of the pom pom garland to a galvanized bucket.
My son picked out his favorite saying and colored it with the included hot pink marker and I attached it to the bucket with some ric-rac. We wrapped the remaining AdornIt Tags in ric-rac and included it in the bucket, along with the marker.
And that’s it, wasn’t that easy? I love how our little Survivor Gift Bucket is going to bring lots of joy, love and hope!
