CTMH-- La Belle Vie WOTG (Locks of Love)

Hi, just as I said on my last post, my birthday always signifies that summer is coming to an end:( 

My girls are heading back to school on Wednesday.  The older one is excited to go back to school and the younger one not so much!  During the school year, every morning my younger daughter says, "Mom I don't want to go to school!".  I reply, "I don't want to go to work either, but I have to!!".

Anyway, I fell in love with CTMH's new "La Belle Vie" line right when I saw it.  It wasn't just that I visited Paris or that I love all things French, it was the colors, stamps, and paper that spoke to me.  So, then I had to make a choice... what event is worthy of this line??  It wasn't too hard to find some the most appropriate pictures.

My youngest daughter, Abby, donated 10 inches of her hair in July 2012 to 'Locks of Love'.  As you know Locks of Love create wigs for young children.  Here is some info below:

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

It took Abby over 2 years for her hair to grow and meet the Locks of Love guidelines.  Thankfully, Abby still had a short bob afterwards after donating 10 inches.  I am so proud that my daughter chose to do this thoughtful, caring gesture.  Hopefully some child out there is enjoying Abby's black, straight hair.  Thank you Abby!

PS The last picture was from the Workshop on the Go kit.  As usual, I switched somethings around:)

Pin It!
