Pink Lingerie or Lady Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge

Hello friends, Susan here to bring you this week's Cricut Cut Challenge.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a serious health concern for women world wide.  The facts and figures regarding Breast Cancer are striking:
  •  1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • In 2015, an estimated 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 60,290 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer.
Here at Bitten By The Bug 2 we are concerned with sharing the positive message of Breast Cancer Awareness.  We devote a challenge to this issue every October in hopes that our efforts might encourage you to do breast self-exams and, if you are over forty, to schedule your annual mammogram.  

This week I challenged the Design Team to create a project with Pink Lingerie and/or a Lady to create a Breast Cancer Awareness project.  We hope that our challenge this week will resonate with you, and that you too will join us in this challenge to help make others aware!!

Bring on the Changes....

Hello friends, Susan here to bring you a Bitten By The Bug 2 update.  Melanie Brown has joined me in facilitating the BBTB2 site.  In discussing the site, Melanie and I have decided to discontinue the link up portion of our weekly posts.  We love what you make when you join us, but our participation has been limited recently.  Until we can address the underlying issues, we plan to be a "for inspiration only" blog.  I hope that you will continue to support and following us!

And because I can never do a blog post without a visual accompaniment, here is a little team JibJab video for you!
