  9. So ironic that you did that beautiful box. I Saw a halloween one lastnight on anther hop and thought how cool it would be to do one for thiss hop and then inside the box I would put in a handmade bracelet like the one that was given to me when I was diagnosed in Dec of 09. At the age of 37 I had a double mastectomy wich was feb of this yr. Still holding strong. TFS Loved it. Best, StaceyM. Aka Pinksugar
