Charity Collab: That's What Friends are For

The wonderful thing about being a part of the digi-scrap community is the way we come together from all over the world to raise money for a cause, a catastrophe or a friend in need.
This time we come together for one of our own.
Melissa Melanson-Dawes (aka LissyKay Designs) just underwent her 14th spine operation and now has to face yet another operation.  She has had to take her 3rd leave of absence from work and will have to stay on bed rest following this next operation through the end of the year.  With all the medical bills and cost of living, the family is not in a financial position to do this, but has no choice as Melissa's spine damage has worsened to the point that she was losing the ability to walk.

Still recovering from the last round of surgeries, the family now finds themselves in an even worse position than before.  Melissa still needs more treatment and the family is facing losing their small condo due to their finances being drained.  We hope that you will join in and help the Dawes family during their time of need so that Melissa can continue to receive the life-saving care she requires.  They have kept the drastic nature of their situation quite private, but it is at a point they stand to lose what little they have and this will impact the further care Melissa needs.

Many know Melissa has struggled for years, but most don't know this all started when she was in a car accident as a teenager.  Her husband, Alan, works 2 jobs but this barely touches the debt they have had to take on for Melissa's medical treatment.  Doctors believe they finally have a solution to prolong Melissa's physical abilities and with all things going right, she will be able to work for a few more years.  The doctor does not expect her to have many years left of employment and she will have to take a permanent disability. 

Many thanks to the 22 amazing designers have come together to help raise money for this wonderful family:
2 Curly Headed Monsters, A Fish Designs, A Little Giggles Designs, Angel Wing Scraps, Anne-Marie Designs, Arizona Girl, Cajun Diva Scraps, Christine Martin, Created by Jill Scraps, Dana's Footprints, Dream4Ever Designs, Ginger's Scraps N Pixels, Jilbert's Bits of Bytes, LouCee Creations, Manu Scraps, NBK Designs, Patty B Scraps, Studio Wendy, The Urban Fairy, Studio4 Designworks, Dagi's Temp-tations & Zesty Designs and their super talented Creative Teams who have created such wonderful layouts for your inspiration!

Pixel Scrapper Challenge Freebie

Hi, everyone! Marisa gave us a designer challenge at Pixel Scrapper and our guidelines were to name the kit "Back to Basics" and include 10 papers and 30 elements. That's it - it's up to each designer to decide how to interpret "Back to Basics". (You can find the other kits here.) I decided on a more literal interpretation, including what I considered to be your "basic" elements. Here's my kit...
