**Note**
Since unforseen circumstances in 2010 led to me not being able to complete the Book of Hope, I am making a 2010-2011 Book this year with the pages that I have kept safe from last year and new pages from various paper gang peoples.  I'm excited to have some new people join the project and will be posting the pages that arrive in the next few weeks before the 2011 Relay for Life which will be on June 25 this year Smiley

For the past 4 years I have been involved with our town's Relay for Life, a cancer fundraiser that is very important to me as not only a survivor (almost 8 years woo hoo!) of cancer but also as someone who has lost people I love to this disease (my mom, my aunt, my uncle, friends....)  Currently my aunt and a family friend are both fighting breast cancer as well and I am more determined than ever to do all I can to help beat this freaking horrible disease.  In 2008 I invited some of the paper gang to participate in a Book of Hope....thus was born a 3 year tradition!  

The first Book of Hope was raffled off to one of the Survivors at our very first Survivor Dinner in 2008.

The second Book of Hope 2009 was raffled in a fundraiser by my team, which raised $630 towards our team's final fundraising total of over $15,000!

This year I have asked my fabulous artist friends to contribute to the Book of Hope 2010 and here is the start of the best book yet!  Front pages only (the backs are gorgeous too but have everyone's personal info on them...)this Book of Hope is in a bird theme and will go into the Silent Auction that we are having on event day!

I'm so insanely lame that I forgot to make a page.  Roll Eyes I'm going to get it in the mail this weekend and keep my fingers crossed that it makes it to the great white north on time.
