Race for life & raffle...

Firstly let me apologise for the above picture which for some reason has been uploaded the wrong way & no matter what i do i cannot correct it which i am really annoyed about as it is a important picture on this post!!
Anyway i am taking part in 'Race for life' in celebration of my dear friend julie's most of you lovely bloggers know we lost julie to cancer six weeks it seems so much longer than that much seems to have happened in that time.
Her very special goodbye service which we travelled down too cornwall for...many tributes have been paid to julie.
Julie was a very talented special lady & i was proud to be her friend..julie was a artist,a very talented artist at that...her passion was painting 'seascapes' especially of where julie lived in wonderful cornwall with all its wonderful scenery.
I thought that you might like to view some of julie's work & the tribute written about julie at one of the galleries that sold julie's work.
You can view the tribute here then click on the 'julie brett gallery' to view some of julie's work,you can also click on 'exhibition gallery' again where julies work can be viewed.
This exhibition is taking place from friday 21st may-tuesday 25th may from 10.30am-4.30pm.
At: The national trust,Trelissick garden,Feock,near truro,Cornwall.TR3 6QL.

Right now back to the RACE FOR LIFE which i am taking part in on 25th july 2010..

I have now recieved my welcome pack..number..sponsor sheets etc....
I am hoping to raise money in celebration of julie's life & help raise money to help save someone elses life...we all know someone who has been effected by this terrible terrible disease.
I am doing the race with my friend who lost her husband to lung cancer four years ago..

So my lovely bloggers i am asking you from the bottom of my heart will you please please sponsor can do so by clicking onto the link at the top of this page & it will take you directly to my sponsor page where you can sponsor me online...if you prefer to sponsor me the old fashioned way you can always send me a cheque & i can enter you onto the sponsor form,but if i am honest i would rather you sponsor me online.
If you sponsor me i will enter you into a raffle to win this little dear...
This is 'leonora' a one of a kind mohair collectors bear from my own collection...she is 8'' tall & comes with her pearly beads & her tie on tag with all her details.
I choose leonora mainly because of her dusky pink colour as race for life is PINK themed!!
Once you have sponsored me please leave a comment so i know to enter you into the raffle..if you sponsor me online i will automatically recieve a email from race for life informing me of this.

I will draw the raffle on 10th july 2010 which would have been julie's can still sponsor me after this date but will not be entered into the raffle to win leonora.
So please dig deep & sponsor me...i really want to make this worth while for julie.
A big thankyou in advance from the bottom of my heart. xx
