Our second October reveal ...

Welcome to our mid month reveal. 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month here in Australia which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.   I am sure there are few of us who have not been touched by breast cancer in some way amongst our families, friends, neighbours and work colleagues.  So this month we are using PINK on our entries in support of this cause. I urge each and every one of you to be vigilant in your self awareness and care - early detection saves lives.  If you would like to make a donation to this great cause you can do so HERE or HERE.

Introducing Chris Hobel with Rose Pink.
CRITERIA - The use of PINK

My inspiration is the color pink and the roses.

I have used pink and the pattern paper has roses on it and I also added a rose stencil in the corner. After the initial shock of being diagnosed with Breast Cancer , our Daughter in law focused on getting through surgery, chemo and getting well. She did so with strength, courage and grace. Last day of Chemo was a happy day for her and she is doing really well now

Such a beautiful painting. My inspiration is the beautiful roses and the colour pink.

The painting reminded me of the flowers in my sister's wedding bouquet so I made a BTP album about her wedding day.

I was inspired by the feminine theme.

I was inspired by the roses to do a layout about visiting the rose garden at Hyde park in London. I love roses!

I was inspired by the colours in the painting and those in the photo I used.

Now it is your turn, we'd love to see your own interpretation ...

Remember we happily accept all forms of paper crafting for your entry including digital and encourage international submissions. All we ask is that you create something new for our challenge and only combine your entry with a sketch challenge. We offer two prizes determined by team vote and one other prize selected purely by random draw - so anyone can be a winner regardless of style or level of experience. You have until 11.55pm on the last day of the month to submit your entry.

Please pop back on the 22nd when we introduce you to our October Guest Designer.
