I had to branch away from Stampin’ Up! (sort of) for such a great cause.
I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO ALEXA. She is Lauren Meader’s daughter. And this stamp set was designed especially for her with proceeds going towards Pediatric Cancer Research. You can purchase Alexa’s stamp set for just $12 plus s&h.
Go get a box of kleenex and please take a moment to read her story on Lauren’s blog (click on Alexa’s story in header….even more, browse around her awesome site).

Finally, like I mentioned before, I did a triathlon last year for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and raised money for Blood Cancers. I completed it and came home with such a rewarding emotional feeling inside. I also brought home this medal. I have been displaying it proudly, but wanted to give it to someone who totally inspires me to do what I do. I wanted to give it to someone to show that I care. I found this in Alexa. I will be sending her these cards, my triathlon medal, and one of the Stampin’ Up! tattoo kits that I am donating. If I do start training again for next May’s triathlon…..It will be for Alexa:) I’ll keep you posted.
Have a great day!
