Teal We Find A Cure/ Birthday Hop

This hop is more about awareness. 
Awareness for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome ( PCOS).
September just happens to be PCOS awareness month as well as 
my Birthday.
The ribbon color for this just happens to be Teal.
So all the project on todays hop is going to be using teal.

So we are hopping along today to celebrate my birthday (a little late but that's ok) as well as bring awareness for PCOS.
Here is some information about Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

The reason I wanted to do this hop was because there needs to be a cure. By reading this you know someone that has PCOS. ME!! Thats right I have this. My problems started back when I was a freshman or sophomore in high school. I would miss school at least 2 days a month because of the pain. The pain was so bad at one point that my brother in law took me to the er because we thought it was my appendix. Wrong I had a cyst on my ovary. They gave me pain meds and sent me home. I always just dealt with the pain. Lets fast forward a few years. When I found out I was pregnant with my oldest daughter and went to the first doctor appointment they found a cyst on my left ovary and that was the start of a very stressful nine months. By the end of my pregnancy the cyst had taken over my ovary and had to be removed. My daughter was just 6 weeks old. I worry every day about my girls having this and also my nieces. Especially one of them that are already found out she has a cyst. 

Now on to what I created for this blog hop.

I made a altered mini comp book. The solid cardstock and bubble shape as well as the saying and butterfly are all from CTMH I stamped the butterfly and then cut it out. The pattern paper is from Walmart and came in a pack of 12 sheets for $1.97 AWESOME.. and I love that paper.. I made this to remind me to live everyday as an adventure, write down goals and hopes and dreams and as you make them happen check them off. I just dont want to sit here and one day ask myself what did I do with my life. So Today Is My Adventure.

As for my birthday which was on Labor Day, I dont get much but what I do get means more to me then anything. Every year my girls beg their Nana (my mom) to take them over to her house and bake me a cake. This year was no different. I also got a card and a gift bag with some chocolates in it from a friend. Thank you Julie. :)
Here is my cake they made me this year and it was so good.

I hope you enjoyed my project and hop you will hop with us. Your Next stop is Sarah
