#beastmode blog hop for Jen Del Muro

Maybe you heard? Our sweet friend Jen Del Muro was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of last year. You know Jen.. she's the creator and owner of Reverse Confetti! She's going through aggressive treatment to combat the cancer and the prognosis is good.

If you're hopping along today you should have reached me from Leigh Penner's blog. If you want to start at the beginning Susan Liles's blog has all the deets!

This year Jen's will be quite the journey and battle, but she is a strong and very motivated woman. She's done lots of reading up on how she can take on a positive role in fighting her cancer from all angles, including diet and exercise. With only a couple of treatments under her belt so far, she is looking and feeling good, and plans to keep it that way! Her mantra has become a viral hashtag among her friends and crafty peers - #beastmode - and it totally fits Jen's personality! We love her and want to show our support!

I wasn't sure what kind of card to make for Jen. I hemmed and hawed a bit on that since I knew this blog hop was going to take place. I decided on this inspirational sentiment because I want Jen to know that I think she's a star! I want her to dig deep and bring out all her superpowers and kick butt! You are amazing Jen!

I wonder if this blog hop is like a walk down "Memory Lane" for Jen and you.  (Love you Jen!!). I expect you'll see lots of your favorite Reverse Confetti sets today.    The sets have stood the test of time.. products like these that I fell in love with "once upon a time" are still ones I reach for every day.  The colorful background was created with "So Many Stars" Stamp Set.
I took lots of photos to try to capture all that shine on the stars ! The sentiment is from "Shine Bright"  I cut the white panel and rounded the corners to fit it on the "Tag Me" Confetti Cut.   The card stock is all from Reverse Confetti - Classic RC Aqua, Iced Aqua and White.
And those yummy stars are from the "Seeing Stars" Confetti Cuts. I love all the different ways you can switch up your tags with the Tag Toppers and Hang Ups Confetti Cuts!
You're next stop on this hop is Heather Hoffman

But before you go I want to urge you to do two things...

Do your monthly self exams and get your doctor recommended mammograms. Did you know that 1 in 8 women US women will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime?

Check out Jen's Facebook page here and follow her journey. She's been sharing her progress and I know a kind word from you (maybe send her a meme when she's getting her chemo) would mean the world to her. 

Here's a complete list of all the designers with projects to share today!
