operation julie's smile



I am so glad that you joined us on this amazing blog hop for Operation Julie’s Smile.  If you came here from Teresa’s blog, then you are in the right spot.  If not, you may want to start from the beginning at the Sweet Stamp Shop’s blog and take your time.   You have ALL WEEKEND to hop with us and win prizes!
First up, here's my card for the hop. I broke away from my CAS roots a little with this one LOL! I think it was those yummy My Mind's Eye papers that got me away from my white cardstock!

Supplies: Stamps - Lil' Inker Designs acorn sentiments, rainbow & cloud sentiments; Inks - Versacolor pinecone; Card - Stampin' Up soft suede, sahara sand, early espresso; Paper - My Mind's Eye lost & fonund two sunshine; Dies - Lil' Inker Designs acorn, sentiment flag, Papertrey Ink tag sale 3; Ribbon - Papertrey Ink aqua mist; Twine - The Twinery cappuccino

The creative blogging community is coming together this weekend to help one of our friends, Julie Ranae.  You may know her as the Design Team Coordinator for many wonderful companies from bakers twine, die cuts, rubber stamps and more.  What many people don’t know about Julie Ranae is that she has had some pretty major dental surgeries in her lifetime due to medication she had to take as a child.  It was in her plans to think about having all of her teeth  replaced at some point in the next 5 years, a decision that was pretty easy to plan out.  But then it happened…she chipped her front teeth on a weekend a month ago. The dentist told her there was no way to save them & that it was his recommendation that she give in and have them all her teeth removed soon, but for that day, they needed to get her front teeth done so her gums could begin to heal. He said he would 'work out payments with her to have ALL this work done...but when she called to make her appt for the first step of impressions, they told her the amount of money that was needed and that the 'payments' applied only to the two teeth that were extracted that day. Her husband Paul was with her & that too, was his understanding as well. So this is how she has found herself in this situation…Needing at least $4000 to get started and another $3000 to finish the process…a total of $7000.


Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop put together this benefit after finding out about this situation and before Julie Ranae knew it, it took flight!
Because she is an event organizer by trade, she has taken on the job of organizing all of the blogs in this hop as her way of ‘working overtime’ for what she needs, the same as if she were able to work overtime at an outside job to pay for the work to be done.
It is the goal of all of these generous friends & sponsors to help make this situation more do-able for our friend so that she can share a brand new smile with all of us soon.
If there is anything you can do to help with a financial donation, there is a donation button ready for you to click.  Any amount is appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500.

I hope you enjoyed your stop here on the hop!  The next stop is Keva’sblog.  Make sure you leave a comment here before you go so that you can have a chance at the amazing prizes up for grabs and if you can, please make a donation so we can help bring back a new smile for our friend.

With a blog hop this large there could be a break somewhere in the chain, so please bear with us and if need be refer to the complete list of blogs on the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog where you will also find the list of sponsors for the hop.
