Digi Scraps Drive In Charity Scrapathon Blog Train

October is Breast Cancer awareness month, and you've probably noticed pink everywhere - businesses from office supplies to donut shoppes have been creating products specially designed to raise awareness and funds to this important cause. And the ladies at Digi Scraps Drive-In have stepped up to the plate. Not only have they created a beautiful charity collab kit, but they built an entire weekend event around it.

The Charity Scrapathon runs from October 21 to 24. Anyone can scrap along, but to be eligible for the prizes, you need to have purchased the charity collab kit.

And WOW these prizes! You can earn coupons, a site collab, and a chance to win Jen C Designs or C.W. Picket and Company's entire store!

When you purchase this kit, your $6 goes entirely to Breast Cancer research (after Paypal fees), gets you stunning collab kit (and it's not just pink) And a chance to win coupons, another kit, and perhaps an entire store (now that's a deal!)

Feast your eyes on the beautiful kit:

You can pick it up at Digi Scraps Drive-In, and remember all proceeds (after Paypal ees) are going to breast cancer research.

Of course we had to get the word out about this event as much as possible, and so we decided to launch the event with a Blog Train. Travel this train and you will collect beautiful brag book pages and even a set of blogwear. The train starts on the DSDI Blog and ends in the DSDI forums. Some of our team members live in other timezones, so be patient if all the contributions aren't posted yet - they will be.

Here is my contribution:
