#BEASTMODE Blog Hop for My Bestie, Jen del Muro


Well Jen, welcome to your surprise #BEASTMODE Blog Hop!  Because you are loved more than you know, your Confetti Crew, along with Jennifer McGuire and the help of a few VERY special friends have put together an amazing blog hop to show our support and a little encouragement as you put up the fight of your life battling breast cancer.  I know there have already been a few ups and downs, but hopefully this will keep you smiling for a little while.....I {heart} you!!

(graphic courtesy of Kristina Werner-thank you!)

For anyone wishing to hop along (and please do!!!), the hop starts here on my blog (because she's my bestie).  I'll share a hop list at the bottom of this post.  Here's a little bit about Jen and why we are giving her all the support we can right now: 

Jen was diagnosed with breast cancer toward the end of last year. She's been dealt a pretty bad hand as far as the treatment for her type of aggressive cancer, but the prognosis is good. This year will be quite the journey and battle, but she is a strong and very motivated woman. She's done lots of reading up on how she can take on a positive role in fighting her cancer from all angles, including diet and exercise. With only a couple of treatments under her belt so far, she is looking and feeling good, and plans to keep it that way! Her mantra has become a viral hashtag among her friends and crafty peers - #BEASTMODE - and it totally fits Jen's personality! We love her!  

With that being said, I hope y'all will take this story to heart and schedule YOUR mammogram--please get checked!!  Getting an early diagnosis is the key to a head start in navigating this terrible disease.


And because we are crafty peeps, here's a quick rundown on the REVERSE CONFETTI stuff I used today:


The background was stamped with the BIG NOTES stamp set repeatedly.  I used the BLOOMS 'N BUDS floral set for the flowers and then cut them out with the BLOOMS 'N BUDS Confetti Cuts.  The sentiment is from the newer YOU'RE SO stamp set and the coordinating word "fabulous" is from the YOU'RE SO Confetti Cuts set.  Everything is layered onto a circle from the LACY SCALLOP CIRCLES Confetti Cuts.  All inks and cardstocks used are REVERSE CONFETTI colors.  Jen loves sparkles, so my card was "winked up" with a Clear Wink of Stella brush marker.  I wish y'all could see it in person...it's so SPARKALAY!!!!

Ok, your next stop on the hop is my other fabulous friend, AMY KOLLING!

  11. Hi Susan, your card is beautiful but being as you are Jen's bestie, I'll pass this on to you and you can share it with her. IF she is interested in alternative medicine, she may want to research this....Chaga Tea. There is a book called: The Cancer Ward by: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and it is rather interesting. You can also Google Chaga and read or watch videos about its cancer fighting properties. (I truly hope I am NOT offending anyone by sharing this info, just want to share it in case someone doesn't already know about it and wants to try it.) I have been drinking it every day for over 2-1/2 years for preventative measures.
