Fight for Little Lauryn

Happy Friday


It is not often I will publish a non-card post, but this is so close to my heart and I hope yours if you are part of the paper crafting community.

"Many of you might know Linda Payne who was a DT on The Outlawz and TTCRD. Her 2 year old granddaughter Lauryn was diagnosed with leukemia and admitted to Children's Hospital in Washington, D.C. The first round of chemo is 35-40 days. Help us help them with out of pocket expenses." 

There are some Beautiful Digi Stamps for you if you can donate a little something

My heart and prayers go to my dear friend Linda and her family
