Rising Waters Flood Appeal

Here is the link to a wonderful blog...for those of you who don't know Australia has been torn apart by devastating floods, there are many states that have been affected, but in particular Queensland...for me...It has touched my heart...I have family and many scrappy friends that live in Queensland, and not only that, but while all the flood was unfolding, Cameron, my 17 year old son was in  Queensland with his friends family and I was a nervous wreck the whole time...I was lucky and he was a distance away from the flooding but he still had to get home...with flooding along the route he had to take to get home...I know how I felt, so I can only begin to imagine how the families and people affected, with their whole houses going under....well..it would be soul crushing....
 
Sharryn over at rising flood waters appeal has set up this blog to help those who have lost so much.....
 
We are crafters, we love to help others in need and this is truly one of those times.....
 
Go check the blog...its about making pages, for those who have lost all their own photos but may be able to get photos from others, in the hope of just popping one of these "FOUND" photos on the layout and creating some instant beautiful memories...
 
MY personal goal is to make 10 pages today....I have all the gear there in my craft area so its not going to cost me anything, and I know I would truly love someone to do this for me if I were in this position....
 
This is from Sharryn's blog...
As you are all so eager to help, I have already organised a PO Box address for you to send things through to me.
Please send them too:
Rising Waters
C/O PO BOX 584X
LEUMEAH NSW 2560

***PLEASE DO NOT SEND CASH***.
This is for memory gifts ONLY.
 
 
Hope you can all help...even if everyone did one page just imagine the difference it coiuld make....I have haerd that 10% of our whole population of Australia have been affected by the floods in the past few weeks...thats unfathonable!!!!!!
 
Please help...

Would love to haer if you can help....I have a gorgeous fairy stamp that I have bought double of before...If you let me know here you will do a page or ten I'll put you in the draw for this stamp...its so darn cute....
will take a phot for you later...until then
lots of it
