Today starts Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I had a great idea for the THINK PINK challenge at MY SHERI CRAFTS!  I altered a cardboard drink carrier as a unique way to support a few friends that are doing the "Race for a Cure" walk/run.  While I am not doing the race, I thought it would be a nice gesture to show my support for those that are and give them a great momento to take home with them.
I found these travel cups with the pink band at Wal-Mart a few months back on clearance and bought all they had at $1 each!  They were perfect for this theme and I really didn't need to embellish them.  The drink carrier was almost thrown away, but I can't have that!?!  I knew it had great potential and kept it for just such an occasion.  I simply added a little paper and punched a border with my EK Success Wide Scallop border punch.
The shoe was an svg cut file I found on Lesleyanne's blog HERE and I modified it a bit.  The pink ribbons are cut using a Cuttlebug 2 x 2 Awareness Ribbon die on my Cuttlebug.  I wanted to add some vinyl to the cups but didn't have any more pink vinyl so I just left them plain because I want them to have a hot cup of cocoa before the race and didn't want them to feel bad about tearing paper embellishments off to drink it.  I hope you like my take on this challenge!
