Operation Julie's Smile } Blog Hop with TONS of prizes

I had the opprotunity to finally meet Julie this past summer at CHA! She is simply so sweet and just a great person. Many may know that a few weeks ago, Julie Ranae had to have emergency oral surgery resulting in the removal of her two front teeth. The dentist at that time believed the best course of action would be to remove the rest of her teeth and replace them with permanents. (as to avoid *years* of dental work) Relieved at finding a solution to this major dental problem .. she visited the office for dental surgery the week. Unfortunately, it wasn't the visit she was expecting. After the consultation and scheduling the surgery, the surgeon's office informed her that she would need to bring $4000 back to the appointment with her and they would proceed. This amount would not include the 'dentures' to follow.

There will be a benefit blog hop called 'Operation Julie's Smile' that will take place Oct 7-9. There are a variety of companies and design teams who will be participating in this hop to help raise funds for this benefit.
So far, over $1000 in prizes have been made available and will be awarded for both participants and those who donate.

Operation Julie's Smile is now accepting designers/teams who would like to be a part of the benefit hop. If you are interested
in getting involved in this creative fundraising event, please contact Nicole Rixon at nicolehrixon@gmail.com The deadline to be
a part of the hop is Wednesday, Sept 28th. Participants will be notified of the blog hop order between Oct 3rd-5th.

This blog hop is an opportunity to have fun, feature your design work and raise money for a friend in need.

Be sure to look on the side bar of all of the designers blog as there will be a donation button link.

I look forward to sharing my creation with all of you for this special hop!!
