I wanted to share with you some of the items that will be for sale at Scrapbook Generation's Scrap Pink silent auction Saturday, Sept. 27. We plan to have about 15 items, ranging from layouts to cards to mini-albums!

Allison Davis has already donated five layouts, all with hand-stitching, for the auction, and one of hers is shown in the top picture. Karin Vacha has done a really cute black and pink "diva" page with plenty of glitter and jewels. Laura Parks has made a beautiful pink and black "sassy" mini-album with lots of stitching, and Marti Blattert has made a pink chipboard album that has dozens of intricately decorated pages!

Stacey Atchley has already completed an 8x8 pink album, and I'm still working on my layouts and mini-album.

I also wanted to remind you that we're counting on you to help us raise at least $1,000 for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer foundation. How can you help?

1 -- Many of you have already signed up for the Scrap Pink crop on Sept. 26. It is full! Ten dollars of your fee will be sent directly to the Scrap Pink sponsor.

2 -- Please attend one of our special Scrap Pink sketch sessions on Saturday, Sept. 27. The 10 and 11:30 am sessions are full, but there is still room in the 1, 2:30, and 4 pm sessions. A portion of the paper sales goes to Scrap Pink. In exchange for your participation, we have several special additions to our regular sketch sessions, including getting to create two double-page layouts for the price of one, pink favors, and the chance to win several larger prizes during each session! Creating Keepsakes Dream Team member Allison Davis will be at Scrapbook Generation all day, and this would also be a good chance to meet her! She is designing one of the pages you'll be making at the sketch sessions, and I'm doing the other layout.

3 -- Stop by and place a bid in the Scrap Pink silent auction on Saturday, Sept. 27. Bidding starts at 10 am and ends at 6 pm. Every penny raised goes to Scrap Pink and the Susan G. Komen fund!

4 -- We've also hoping that you'll get into the fun of the events and join us in wearing pink in support of the efforts to find a cure for an affliction that has separated us from far too many wonderful women over the years.

And I almost forgot...EVERYONE who spends at least $25 on Saturday, Sept. 27 will get a special edition pink page kit designed by Allison Davis. Regular cost is $12.99! We're also giving everyone who makes a purchase of any amount the chance to pick out 10 pink buttons -- free! (Both offers are for adults only, one per family, please.)
