Tons to read!


Kit Information:
This kit was created in support of a wonderful woman and her son. Here's a little about WHY:

My son, Brendan, in January was life flighted to Tucson twice and diagnosed with the very rare condition Henoch Schonlein Purpura (HSP). Once they got that taken care of he has had tons of pain still and has been diagnosed now with Henoch Schonlein Purpura Nephritis (HSP Nephritis). His kidneys are having a lot of residual problems from the original HSP and he has been in and out of the hospital for 9 MOS. He will have to have kidney biopsies every few MOS and is needing still more treatment at the docs offices etc. He has still a lot of Protein and blood in his urine and they say that this condition can last for several years. His doctor here is a rare disease specialist and is doing everything she can to keep him comfortable and healthy. Brendan is 11 yrs old. He loves sports and the outdoors and would love to be out playing with other kids his age. He, however lacks the energy or strength to do much moving around at all and would rather just sit still or sleep. This is a huge change from a year ago when he was bouncing off the walls and I couldn't keep him inside! Thank you for any help at all!!! Brightest Blessings to all! Much lo ve! Sarah (LadyRaven Creations)

All proceeds of this kit will be put towards paying medical bills. Bad things often h
appen to good people - but we can help turn that around in some small way! Thank you to each designer to added their part & THANK YOU for just coming to see.

I LOVE making Layouts - I can't seem to help myself when I get in the mood. Okay
true, I am still learning how to take my time with them instead of fly through
them, but I figure I'll eventually slow down some!! Maybe =]

not a chance by far! SO I've decided to have a contest of sorts!

My goodness Sarah you have your hands full the now and still find time to write your blog and give freebies away. You are a remarkable lady.

My heart goes out to your wee man Brendan, it must break you heart to see him suffering so x I ken with protein in the urine that this is a sign from diabetis which I have and hubby x You are constantly trying to regulate the sugar levels bu twith Brendan's liver being poorly he's going to go through it really bad. Too much sugar in the blood levels makes you just want to sleep all the time and not give a fig about anything. It is so hard to see such a wee lad go through so much at such a difficult age in his life. Soon he'll be off to High School and hopefully can enjoy life there to the fullest possible way. Wait till he brings his first girlfriend home x

Your kit autumn Dreamer is stunning. I love the soft muted colours that you've used. The wee flowers that look like African Violets are beautiful. Plus you have butterflies which fill us all with hope x

the kit dedicated to Brendan is amazing too. Where didi you get all the ideas for the elements? I just love the troll with blue hair and the wee train with teddy having a ride.

You have a beautiful site and I look forward to visiting again.

All my love to you and Brendan with special angel blessings xxx
