Spring Brings Hope

This morning I had an e-mail from Denise at DigiDesigns by Denise regarding a charity collab she contributed to and was also very pleasantly surprised to see that Erika from Inkin' Creations was the organizator for this amazing kit. Here is Erika's note:

"For the past month or so, I have been organizing a charity kit that my dear creative team member Renee initiated. Her son attends preschool and her son's teacher's daughter (Jenna) was diagnosed with Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder.

Here is Jenna's story: Jenna received a liver transplant in 1997 when she was just 7 years old. The transplant was a success and her health had been good. She graduated from Apollo High School in the spring of 2009 and just finished her first successful semester of college at Bemidji State University, in Minnesota. When she came home for Christmas break this December, she showed her parents 2 huge lumps on her body. Jenna was quickly admitted to the University of Minnesota Medical Center where their greatest fear became a reality and Jenna was diagnosed with Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder, a form of cancer caused by the anti-rejection medications she received following her transplant. She is currently undergoing rigorous chemotherapy treatments. The increase in doctors appointments and primary goal of keeping Jenna healthy has prevented her from going back to Bemidji for spring semester. She is currently working at Cashwise Pharmacy when she feels up to it and is taking an online class through BSU."

100% of proceeds from this kit will be given to Jenna to cover her medical expenses.
Nine designers have joined together to bring you this fun spring kit. These designers have donated 68 papers, 93elements, 1full alphabet, and 2 12x12 quick pages.

This is such a gorgeous collaboration kit and for such a worthy cause. It is always so uplifting to me the spirit and true love for others that surrounds the digital scrapbooking world. Thanks ladies for this amazing kit.

Here is the layout I did using this stunning kit!

My prayers are with Jenna and her family!
