Tulips for the Cure‏

The past couple of months I have been busy decorating tulips for the 19th Annual Komen North Texas Race for the Cure. The tulip committee has been meeting weekly on Tuesday nights to get ready for THIS SATURDAY'S RACE! We have been busy decorating tulips, writing messages on them, and taping down stakes so that we can place them in the ground for display on race day. We have an awesome committee of wonderful ladies who I have enjoyed getting to know through volunteering on this committee. This has been a fun way to take my love of scrapbooking and embellishments and project that onto the tulips I've decorated.

This is the 5th year for Elizabeth's Garden, which is what we decorate the tulips for. The garden is named in memory of a beloved friend, SURVIVOR, and dedicated Komen volunteer, Elizabeth Guardiola, who passed away in 2004. Elizabeth was the founder of Hispanics for the Cure. Buying a tulip is a wonderful pay to pay tribute to someone who is SURVIVING breast cancer or to remember someone who has lost their battle. The tulips are $10 and are a wonderful gift for the survivors in your life. If you are interested in purchasing a tulip visit the Komen North Texas website or contact me.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Race Day!
