Saturday Nov.17th--"They All Matter" Lets find the Cure blog hop

Welcome to The Cancer Awareness Blog Hop. The name for the hop is going to be 
"They All Matter" Lets Find The Cure

Thank you for joining us today for this wonderful hop! We would all love to find a cure for every cancer!  If you have come from   Lluvia~ you are in the right spot.  Our hop starts with Lisa ~
The cancer I chose to do for the Hop is Kidney Cancer. 
It will be 3 years this December that my Mom lost her battle with kidney cancer.
It started for her with back pain.  She cleaned houses for a living and just thought her back was out of place.  She went to a chiropractor, they did x-rays and that was when it was discovered that she had kidney cancer.  She had surgery and did pretty well for a few years.  It started to spread thoughout her body and 3 years ago she passed away.
She was a great cook, loved to garden, and loved to spend time with her grandchildren.  She is greatly missed every day!
I chose to make a layout in Honor of my Mom.  Her favorite Psalm is "Be still and know that I am God."  I was very happy that I was able to find a stamp with her favorite saying.

Thank you for joining us today!!  ~~Christina~~

Next stop on the hop is Pam L ~

Here is the complet blog hop list:

Creative Kuts Design Team Post Thursday Nov. 15th

A chill is in the air! Our weather in the area I live in has gotten colder!! I have been in the mood for stuffing, Turkey, and Cranberry sauce!! I can’t wait for Thanksgiving! All those wonderful smells, watching the parade! I love this time of year!
I decided to make place card settings for my post for today!
I started with the Creative Kuts file Guess-Whos coming to dinner.
The file prints off in a 8 1/2 x 11 form. I decided to shrink the file so I could cut the turkey out smaller. I used a font on my computer for the lettering, and some fall fibers that I had in my crafting stash.
I also printed it in it’s original format to make a scrapbook page of it too. We have relatives coming from out of town for Thanksgiving and I want to take some pictures.
