Hello Chris, what a lovely gift box, this is a gift in itsself! Gorgeous and such a great initiative. I've been confronted with breast cancer all around me lately, and I am so glad that there is a lot of attention for this terrible disease! In two weeks time it is my turn for the x-rays again and I tell you I'm dreading it! Have a great weekend, hugs Frea

Sabrina Jackson said...

Chris, sweet friend, I am blown away by this absolutely gorgeous box! Love all of those sweet flowers and that yummy ribbon. Another masterpiece!!! Oh, how fun to have a day with the kiddos. Mine just left for a day out at church. Our church is hosting an event every year at this time just for the kids, since we don't clebrate Halloween and they don't want the kids of the church to feel left out. They are having an entire day of fun, food and off course candy, but we call it Hallelujah party! They'll be learning about GOD, but still have fun! Anyhow, hope the realtor visit went well and that you have fun with the family! Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
