Divine Digital is going to the Cats and Dogs!

Divine Digital's team will be blogging for our FUR BABIES this month! Join us daily for FREE Goodies on our TEAM DIVINE Blogs! Check out Divine Digital's new charity kit, Pawsatively Divine, designed by Team Divine, on sale for only $5.00!

It often happens that a man is more humanely related to a cat or dog than to any human being. ~Henry David Thoreau

"PAWSatively Divine!" is Team Divine's collaborative effort to support the ASPCA. It is a fun, whimsical, warm and inviting kit that any pet owner is sure to adore. Perfect for scrapping all those pet and animal layouts, "PAWSatively Divine!" is an incredible kit for an incredible charity.
The ASPCA was founded in 1866 as the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. The Society was formed to alleviate the injustices animals faced then, and they continue to battle cruelty today. Whether it’s saving a pet who has been accidentally poisoned, fighting to pass humane laws, rescuing animals from abuse or sharing resources with shelters across the country, the ASPCA works toward the day in which no animal will live in pain or fear.
By purchasing this kit, you will help Divine Digital support the efforts of the ASPCA. So purchase the kit, not just because you love animals and have lots of pet photos to scrap, but because your purchase will help make a statement that you support the ASPCA along with Divine Digital.
Here is what you get with this HUGE kit, "PAWSatively Divine":

128 Papers (12x12, 300dpi, JPG)
8 SNAPlets (8x8, 300dpi, PNG format)
9 Brag Book Pages (4x6, 300dpi, PNG format)
20 Animals (cats, dogs, fish, and more!)
17 Frames (many of the frames are embellished)
33 Word Art Elements (300dpi, PNG format)
32 Fasteners (brads, buttons, clips, etc.)
38 Fiber Elements (flowers, ribbons, etc.)
39 Doodles and Shapes (PNG format)

So get scrapping and get supporting the ASPCA with "PAWSatively Divine!" Your four legged friends will thank you.....

My freebie for you today is a set of two blog headers, one for dog lovers, and one for cat lovers. They are both 1100 X 497 pixels at 72 dpi. Image is linked. Enjoy!

Shelley, my beautiful, free-spirited, oldest daughter was diagnosed with chronic leukemia (cml) on October 08, 2008. I can't even begin to describe all the different emotions I feel right now. But the strongest one is that I wish I could make it all better for her. I would gladly trade places with her and take this on in her place. Shelley has always been the child that I didn't have to worry about. She's always been very independent, but scared of everything. She's the only person I know who's afraid of butterflies and moths!! I am so very worried about her right now. Her doctors are confused as to why she is in the early stage of this disease, yet they are having a hard time getting her white blood cell count to come down. The day she was admitted into the hospital, her white cell count was 340,000. The normal count should be 12,000. During the 12 days she was in the hospital, her count went up as high as 410,000. She is currently taking two different kinds of chemo pills-a total of 10 pills a day-just chemo. She also has to take iron and potassium pills, along with baby aspirin and some others that escape me at the moment. Normally 22-24 pills a day. The only reason she was even diagnosed right now is because her spleen was enlarged twenty times the normal size it should have been. She was loosing weight, but her stomach was getting larger-the result of the enlarged spleen. Some days just the smell of food made her sick, and she couldn't even finish a whole sandwich. She had been feeling like this for about a month, and the Wednesday she was admitted, she went to the doctor and they sent her straight to the hospital for a CT scan. No immediate member of my family has ever had cancer, and I just feel at a loss right now, not knowing why her body did this. All I can do is make sure she gets the best care possible and help keep her spirits up. I know she WILL beat this. All of her aunts, uncles, cousins, and some of her friends have already volunteered to get tested to see if they are a bone marrow match for her, since that is actually the only cure for it. The chemo pills are only to get it into remission. But from all the research we have done on the internet, the closest match she should have is her sister, Danielle, who gladly volunteered her's, too. She is very much loved, and I don't think she really realized how much until this happened to her. Here are some photos of her during her hospital stay. She had some pretty awesome doctors and nurses.

Sweet Shelley, the day before her doctors let her come home with the stipulation that she has to go back to the oncology clinic every day to have her blood drawn and monitored.

Dr. Vickie Morgan, one of Shelley's favorite doctors.

Shelley with Charlie, one of her two favorite nurses. Her other favorite nurse went on vacation to Jamaica, so we didn't get her photo yet.

Shelley with her Papaw Frank, my daddy.

I did this brag book page for my oldest daughter, Shelley. She went through a goth phase, and I thought she might like to see how much she has changed over the years. She is so totally different now. But beautiful, no matter what "phase" she is in! LOL!!

Jess is one of my daughter's best friends. They've played basketball together for over 10 years now, and I took this photo of her during summer league basketball this year. Her face was covered in sweat, so I used Virtual Photographer's faded filter on it.

My lovely youngest daughter, Danielle. This was her junior picture from last year. She had her senior photos made in July, with four different poses, but I didn't even get to see the proofs before she chose ONE pose and turned them back in! Now what was that all about?


Just testing this out!!

My adorable little great-niece, Brooklyn. She is going to be a big sister in February!
