Challenge Title: Start Spreading the News!
Hostess: dini aka Dina K
Keyword: HYCCT1212
Date: Friday, October 12th, 2012

The emphasis on breast cancer screening during the month of October is all about AWARENESS.
Early detection of breast cancer signs can be key in successful treatment, and we all want to look out for each other.

The thought of awareness got me singing a little show tuneStart Spreading the News!

Let’s kick this challenge off with some flair, and make a card inspired by a show tune!
Any song (title or lyrics) from any musical or movie will do – just let us know what song inspired you!
You can click HERE for some lists to get you started.

I used one of Mo Manning’s gorgeous digital images on my card, inspired by the song “Embraceable You” from An American In Paris.
I love this image so much, and I love the solidarity and support that it conveys.
Thank you so much for your willingness to be an encouragement to someone who needs it!!

TWO lucky winners will be drawn from all my participants to receive a free digital stamp from Mo Manning's shop, Mo's Digital Pencil!
Be sure to check back after the upload deadline to see if you're a winner!!

Challenge Summary: Create a card inspired by a song (title or lyrics) from a musical or movie.
