Just Breathe Digital Kit



I have been inspired, by this very lovely little girl, to make a digital scrapbooking kit.  


Last year Lauren (a dear friends daughter) was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (you can learn more about CF here), and without a cure it is not likely she will live beyond the age of 40.   My wonderful friends from high school and college are working to raise money for Great Strides, which funds research to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. I would love for you to download this kit and then click here to donate to the cause.  Please donate as much or as little as you choose .  I am really hoping to get tons of people to donate, and if that happens, it will add up quickly.   So spread the news, put a link on your blog, let others know there is a new digital kit they can get, and they can help out a sweet little girl at the same time.

Here is Lauren in her vest.  Using the vest helps keep the mucus to a minimum, thus keeping infection out.

The kit is beautiful. I am very familiar with cystic fibrosis as I am a carrier of the gene. She is a pretty girl.

My cousin had CF and we lost her 17 years ago at the age of 10. Thankfully, medical science has come even further in those last 17 years and hopefully developments with CF will be made more in the future. My prayers are with you!

Sarah, you are amazing. I wish I had an ounce of your talent. I also wish I lived closer, so maybe you could teach me all your talents! Thank you so much for all your help raising money for Lauren. I also want to thank all of those who have donated to help my daughter. I can't tell you how much it means to her, and all those affected by CF.

Beautiful kit! Thank you so much.
I'm having problems with the download, but I'm pretty sure it's on my end. . . (It downloads find, but it won't extract right.)

The kit is lovely. Unfortunately I too am having trouble with extracting breathe2. I think that you may have designed this on a Mac and the files aren't always compatible with a PC. Can you help?

Dawn said...

Thank you so much for everything you are doing to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. I have a 19 year old son with CF so the pictures on your website are very familiar to me. Also, thank you to everyone that is donating, I pray for the day a cure is found!

A message to those having trouble with the download. 4shared.com says sometimes there are too many people downloading at one time. Try again. I checked with my PC loving friends and their downloads worked fine. Good luck.

I've gotten the papers to download, but none of the elements. When I download MACOSX comes up and I can't extract on my PC. The elements are just empty files when I open the un-extracted file.

I changed the justbreathe2 file. Try this and see if it works better.

To those experiencing difficulties downloading kit: I am truly sorry you are experiencing difficulties. If you would like to email me sbisel@byu.net with your questions, maybe I can help you. FYI-most PC users are downloading successfully.

Berrybritt said...

Sarah, I love it. I have not taken the time to download yet but I will eventualy. You are so talented. I hope all is well.

Bisel Family said...

I cannot recreate the troubles people are having downloading, I have tried a few friends with PC's, my hubby's PC, and it all works for them. So, my cute hubby put together a Powerpoint presentation about how to download and extract. You can see it here....

Good luck to you all. If you are still experiencing problems, you might want to download a new program to extract files. Again, good luck.

Thanks for the cute kit!!!

Christi said...

I was able to get it to work by renaming a couple of things. It just kept putting an extra file that was named the same as the file folder and that was giving me trouble.

I certainly appreciate your providing this kit. It was well worth the wait! I love the damask printed papers!!!

Thanks again.

Lovely kit. I've posted a link to this on my blog also hoping to get the word out. We lost a friend several years back to CF and I'm happy to help as I can.
