Operation Julie's Smile Blog Hop!!


We are so glad that you joined us for this amazing blog hop for Operation Julie's Smile. If you came from Maria Levine's blog, 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!

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 and that it was his recommendation that she give in and have 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 and it 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 on our sidebars. Any amount is most appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500.

For my project I created a little treat bag using Mummy Marvin. He was part of last months Halloween release over at By LORi Designs!!

Recipe:
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White CS, Black Bazzill CS, Pumpkin Pie CS (SU!), Spooky Diamonds on Kraft (Canvas Home Basics), Clear Acetate; Stamps: Puddle Jumper Mummy Marvin digi (By LORi Designs), Happy Halloween (Hero Arts); Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Tools: Classic Circle Nestie (Spellbinders), Petite Oval Nestie (Spellbinders), Branch Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Spiderweb Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Boo Border Punch (EK Success), Bat Punch (Martha Stewart), Pinking Border Die (The Cats Pajamas), Tag Punch (Marvy), Copics; Other: Black Paper Sack (Celebrate It), Ribbon, Mini Clothes Pin, Glitter, White Paint Pen (Sharpie), Shred, Foam Tape

I hope you enjoyed your stop here on the hop! The next stop is Amy Tsuruta's blog. 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”

Happy Hopping!!
