Just Cause - new challenge at Bugaboo's challenge blog

Hi, sure hope you are having a wonderful Saturday.

We have a new challenge over on the Bugaboo challenge blog - Catch the Bug! Being that this is the month of several different causes,  you will hear about many walks and fund raisers  for many different causes,such as Juvenile Diabetes and Breast Cancer. What is Your Cause? What do you hold close to Your Heart?

We would love for you to join us this week and show us what cause you support. As you visit the design team members you will see we have a wide variety of different cause we all support. Each one very dear and close to their heart.  Please visit Catch the Bug Challenge blog for all the details of the challenge as we have some AMAZING prizes for this challenge, 7 digital images, 4 digital images, or 2 digital images and our wonderful sponsor for this challenge Creative Craft World is offering a chance to win ProMarkers.

I am sharing two causes today, which are both two that I support and that are very close to my heart!
As many already know (if you been following my blog) Breast Cancer Awareness is one cause that we as woman can not ignore. One in every Eight woman are diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime, Men are not safe from this ugly disease either. So please, please do your self exams monthly!

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness I made this file folder using the Ribbon Bear from Bugaboo Stamps.
Here is a side view showing the accordion part of this project.

Another side view showing how I used a piece of Velcro as my clasp to hold shut.

Purple Ribbon - A purple ribbon is worn to bring awareness to many causes, one of them being
Domestic Violence.
Over the years, a number of sources have been credited with originating the use of purple ribbon as a 
unifying symbol of courage, survival, honor and dedication to ending domestic violence.

October is also the month for Domestic Violence Awareness
During the month awarness, it recognizes the tremendous progress made in reducing domestic violence, and a time to recommit to making every one's home a safe place for them.

Domestic violence remains a devastating crisis when one in four women will be physically or sexually assaulted by a partner at some point in her lifetime.

Both of these images can be found at Bugaboo Stamps and they are free!!
You can find them here!

I hope you join us and show your cause.
