Operation Julie's Smile Blog Hop

Happy Friday!!!!

I am really excited to be a part of this event to help out a special Friend!!!

Here is a little info behind this event!!!

The creative blogging community is coming together this weekend to help

one of our friends, Julie Ranae. You may know her as the Design Team

Coordinator for many wonderful companies from bakers twine, die cuts,
rubber stamps and more. What many people don’t know about Julie Ranae
is that she has had some pretty major dental surgeries in her lifetime due
to medication she had to take as a child. It was in her plans to think about
having all of her teeth replaced at some point in the next 5 years, a decision
that was pretty easy to plan out. But then it happened…she chipped her
front teeth on a weekend a month ago. The dentist told her there was no
way to save them & that it was his recommendation that she give in and
have them all her teeth removed soon, but for that day, they needed to

get her front teeth done so her gums could begin to heal. He said he would
'work out payments with her to have ALL this work done...but when she

called to make her appt for the first step of impressions, they told her the
amount of money that was needed and that the 'payments' applied only
to the two teeth that were extracted that day. Her husband Paul was with
her & that too, was his understanding as well. So this is how she has found
herself in this situation…Needing at least $4000 to get started and another
$3000 to finish the process…a total of $7000.
Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop put together this benefit after
finding out about this situation and before Julie Ranae knew it, it took flight!
Because she is an event organizer by trade, she has taken on the job

organizing all of the blogs in this hop as her way of ‘working overtime’
for what she needs, the same as if she were able to work overtime at an
outside job to pay for the work to be done.
It is the goal of all of these generous friends & sponsors to help make this
situation more do-able for our friend so that she can share a brand new
smile with all of us soon.
If there is anything you can do to help with a financial donation, there is a
donation button ready for you to click. Any amount is appreciated and ALL
DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500.

This is a very large Blog Hop so there will be a list over at The Sweet Stamp Shop blog if there is a break in the chain!!!
There is a donation button on my sidebar to make you donations!!!


DP-My Mind's eye

Stamps-Market Street
DP-Studio Calico

So there is over $2500 worth of prizes up for grabs and here are a couple ways to win!!

Blog Hop runs through Sunday October 9th

Prizes will be drawn for the following:

1. from Blog Comments left
2. from PayPal Donation list
3. for Blog Hop Hosts
If You came from Jen del Muro's Blog you are on the right path
Your Next Stop:
Don't forget you can start the hop at Sweet Stamp Shop
and there will also be a list of blogs.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!!!!
