And right now I'm with my mom’s place in Naga, Camarines Sur, Philippines and yesterday weather was great, raining and kinda cold which made me feel in the mood to color.

Will keep coloring the rest of my stay here ;o)

Breast Cancer Awareness

Good morning everyone, it's the last day of the week here in the U.A.E. and the weather is just getting better and better each day, and I am looking forward for our weekened.  Tomorrow will be joining thousands of ladies, guys & children at the Pink Walkathon 2012, it's a yearly event that Burjuman Centre is organizing to help raise funds for breast cancer patient and enjoy a fabulos morning.  Over the years, I have been very active vendor of "Pink Bazaar" but these year I've decided to do a little exercise ;o) and enjoy the day.  As you may all know by now, few months ago, I was diagnosed of breast cancer, and just ended series of treatment, chemoteraphy and radiation.  Now, I'm in my recovery period ;o) Thanks to God most especially, to my husband who stood by my side, my family & friends who have prayed for my speedy recovery.  Promised myself, will help others who are still battling with the desease and other ladies to be more concious about their health, and have themselves check all the time.

Today, before I start my day in the office, let me share another UTEE Card which I have just finished last night.  Been very inspired making cards lately, especially the UTEE, for the step-by-step using UTEE on your images and other projects, please check Camilla's Blog

Used Distress Re-Inker to colour my image

Have a great weekend everyone.  Ladies, don't forget to have yourself check all the time.  A yearly visit to your Dr. & a Mamogram will help us battle these desease on early stage.
