Power of Woman!

In CELEBRATION of the strong woman that she is - 
to my friend who has battled cancer for over a year now!  
Her "One Day at a Time" and positive attitude is so motivating and reassuring for her brothers, her friends - and for me!  I know her approach is helping her win the battles she faces, but her attitude and fighting spirit help all of us in her life cope too!
You are strong, you are brave, you BELIEVE in your team 
- and you are a winner! 

The newest challenge at 613 Ave C is to Celebrate something!  The Sponsor is My Whimsical Little World at the MWLW Digi Shop they provided the DT  with images to use and are providing the prize for the winner.  It's really fun to see what different occasions the DT are celebrating - here.  I know it will be a popular challenge - everyone has something to celebrate!  You can enter up to three times for a chance to win - come on... CELEBRATE WILDLY!


  • Focal image is 'Superhero' from MWLW Digi Shop
