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 - 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 fees) 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:

Scraps With A Mouse Grand Opening is Almost Here!



WACOM has generously agreed to be the sponsor of our BIG CHEESE SCRAP OFF!!!

So to thank them for their generosity, all that enter this contest will be required to blog about the contest.

We will also have special banners for you to sport in order to qualify for this contest!!!

The Big Cheese Scrap Off

We are now taking sign ups for this contest!

Please sign up in our Contest forum with your first name, your user name and blog address.

This contest begins on Friday, October 15, and ends on Saturday, October 30

with the Grand prize winner and Top 5 winners announced on Sunday, October 31.

So, why the name “Big Cheese”??

“The Big Cheese” is listed in John Camden Hotten's The Slang Dictionary, 1863 as:

"Anything good, first-rate in quality, genuine, and pleasant "

These are all attributes of a great scrapper!

We at Scraps With A Mouse strive for quality designs and creations, while not taking

ourselves so seriously that we miss the opportunity to be genuine

and maintain a pleasant environment here at the site!
