scrapping to breathe...

Last December I was able to get together with a group of amazing girls - you might remember...because I blogged about it, of course. ;)  Some of the gals I already knew, and some were brand new friends.  I happened to sit next to one of the girls I didn't know - her name is Brenda.  I sure enjoyed chatting with her all through lunch - I could just tell she was someone I would be happy to call a friend.  I haven't seen her IRL since that day, but we've chatted on the phone, through e-mail, and through our blogs pretty regularly.  She's super sweet, talented, and fun.  She's a great mom to three cute little kiddos -  and one of her sons suffers from Cystic Fibrosis.  Of course, she wants to do all she can to help find a cure for this fatal disease...and that's why she's combining a few of her passions and organized a fundraiser - in the form of a crop! 

Here's the information

Scrapping to Breathe

date: September 12, 2009

time: 10:00 a.m - 10:00 p.m

Place: Courtyard Marriott

1803 Woodland Park Drive

Layton, UT 84041

Cost: $50.00 or $150.00 for table for four

Purchasing a table is only available until August 24th - after that it will be $50.00 a spot

(if you would like to purchase a table email Brenda - and she  will go over it with you - thanks!)

The cost will include your scrap space for the entire day, dinner, class (product included), and a goodie bag! And know that 85% of your donation goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation which is what we are scrapping for - right??

There will also be silent auction items, raffle drawings and store items - 100% of that will go to the Cystic Fibrosis foundation. Her husband's company is generously donating a QK Silhouette! How cool is that!

Brenda asked me to join her at the crop and I'll be bringing some fun ideas to share in the form of a layout demo/class - sponsored by one of my favorite manufacturers -  O'Scrap! 

  If you would like more information, please visit the blog Brenda has set up for the crop - Scrapping to Breathe or you can e-mail her directly with any questions.

I hope some of my friends and blog readers will be able to join us!


  1. brenda is such a sweet girl! and i know this crop is so important to her and she puts so much into it. i'm so glad you're going and get to help out with some fun ideas for everyone. wish i could join you both!

  2. What a wonderful thing to do...I lost my precious daughter, Jennifer, to Cystic Fibrosis three years ago at the young age of 28! What a glorious day it will be when the letters CF finally mean Cure Found! Wish I lived there so that I could come! I hope there is a wonderful turn out!

  3. wow Debbie - i'm so sorry for your loss - but that is my goal - to make CF stand for cure found. Thanks so much Wendy for posting this - it means alot!

  4. Wish I could come! Best of luck to a great event. What a wonderful cause!
