Last year some of the fabulous artistes from craftster helped me make a chunky page (4" by 4") book in the theme of HOPE for the Canadian Cancer Society's relay for life that I was involved in.  As a cancer survivor I was really stoked to be able to raffle it off to a fellow survivor at our event dinner!  Here is the thread from last years book

So once again I'm walking in the Relay for Life in june to celebrate my own 5 year anniversary of being alive(woo!!) and the gals from last year plus some new people have graciously joined in on the Book of Hope 2009. This year's book will be raffled off to raise funds for our team.  I'll be adding pages as I get them and will post a picture of the finished book and/or wall hanging.  Thank you to everyone helping me in this fundraising...fun!!  ***We made $630 in our raffle for this book and a lovely framed cross-stitch picture by one of my other team mates!!!  Here's the book all bound together:



covers by me:


The first page is from rackycoo:


Phizzychick's page from last year that got stuck in the mail:


from minouette (hope, a break in the clouds):


from colorfuldayz:


and from the atcsforall.com site a few pages from my moleskine swap partners
from Bex (her lst chunky page!)


from wendy:


from WYOKrista:


from arteeztmom (ATCsforall)


from eggstudio (ATCsforall)


form Amaryllisroze:


from carrie-me:


from goatgoddess

Wow, those are beautiful.  I think I'll walk to Alberta to bid  Cheesy

Seriously though, those are amazing pages, although it is hard to see them in focus through my tears.  These pages really are touching and inspiring.

I can't wait to see the rest.

Wow, what a wonderful start to the book!!

Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to participate again. I loved doing it last year, and was really excited when I got your PM about this year's. Creating is always fun, but when you know it is for something meaningful it makes it even better.

Can't wait to see the rest~

Each one of those is beautiful. It's wonderful that you do this and that others help out. Y'all did a great job last year and you're doing a great job again. It's lovely and so inspirational. I would love to participate in something like this and make a page, but I didn't know anything about it until now. Great job.

I'm glad that you're doing another one of these! Last year's was by far my favourite thing I've ever seen on the site. So powerful and touching.

All of the pages so far are beautiful and truly touching. I'm excited to see it all come together.

The book is really beautiful and amazing so far. When I saw the pages it touched me a lot because they are so wonderful and full of hope (guess that's the idea). I think everyone who lost someone they loved can relate to the feeling of desperately needing hope.
I am really thankful that there are people like you alteredmommy and all the other amazing crafters who work on that book. I am certain it will help a lot.

I just received a page from goatgoddess-go look!!  I'm finishing up the covers tonight and will be putting the book together tomorrow with the pages I have.   I'll catch you next year if you weren't able to send in a page, the book will be raffled off on Friday-so far we have over $300 in tickets sold.  Stay tuned for some pics of the completed book in the next few days Smiley

Good luck with the last of your fundraising and the Relay.
