My First Linky Party: The Pinkerific Party

I have an exciting announcement to make!  I am having my very first linky party!!!!  This party is not just any ol' linky party.  This party is, well, let me show you.......

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  According to the Susan G. Komen for a Cure website, "In 2011, it is estimated that among U.S. women: There will be 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer.... There will be 57,650 new cases of [non-invasive] breast cancer.  There will be 39,520 breast cancer deaths."  With statistics like these, I'm sure we all know someone who has suffered from breast cancer.  You yourself may have had the disease.  It's really important that women and even men are aware of breast cancer, how to check themselves monthly for it, and how to lower their risk for breast cancer.

So to help raise awareness, I'm asking you link up your pink projects.  Link your pink crafts, pink recipes, pink furniture, pink decor.....You get the idea!  And to make it even more special, I would love for you to put the name or initials of a person who has had breast cancer you would like to memorialize or honor in the name section of submission to the party.

Here are the rules:
  • Put the Pinkerific Party button on your blog or in your blog post.  (Please forgive the code box being off center.  I can't get the darn thing to move!)  A text link is fine too!
<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" alt="" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • Comment on at least three posts.  (Come on, who doesn't like to get a notification that there's a new comment on your blog?!)
And as a thank you for stopping by download this awesome party printable courtesy of Stacy from She's {kinda} Crafty.  Make sure to stop by her blog or her Facebook page to thank her for the pinkerific "Think Pink" party printables!  If you're wondering what to do with the printables, check out what Stacy did with printables at the Pink and Green Sip 'n {See}!

Download the printables here.

Also, giveaways make link parties more fun, right?  So in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I made a sign that says, "HOPE."  One lucky reader will win this sign.

There are two ways to enter to win the sign: 
  1. Leave a comment on She's {kinda} Crafty's Facebook page saying thank you for the "Think Pink" Party Printables and leave a comment below telling me you did. 
  2. Follow my blog and leave a comment below telling me you did.
Easy enough, right?
Well, let's get started!  Link up your pink projects! :)
