Not Everything is Flat in Florida

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Visit the official site here.

Breast Cancer will be detected in one of eight women in the US each year.
It is the second leading cause of cancer death among women each year.
On average every 2 minutes a woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer and every 13 minutes one person will die from breast cancer.
There are currently 33 million breast cancer survivors in the USA.

It's important to support the research for cancer.  Breast Cancer is often associated with the color pink so I will be showing off some pink Cutch cards.

In addition, you can expect to see some boobs with each post.  Who doesn't love boobs?

So let's start with what we're hoping to save!
Today's model is...

Christina Lucchi aka Christina Marie Hopkins aka Christina Model

Began getting famous for this ad
Among other ads for a t-shirt company

She began "modeling" at a very young age while still in high school.
Which lead to more t-shirts for her to model

In the days of MySpace, she was a very popular popup.

If you've seen gifs of bouncing boobs before you have likely come across a few of hers

Do I still have anyone's attention with the words I'm typing?

Uh oh

It's flatlining like Florida...
Oh wait, never mind....

Since she was just a high schooler when she became famous, I thought we should go back to school for some word studies.

Today's word study is Piedmont.

Piedmont comes from the Italian word "piemonte".  It simply refers to a gentle slope from the base of mountains to a region of flat land.

Piedmont is a 2 syllable word.


Gentle slopes

To remind us that not everything is flat in Florida.

The 2010 T206 Piedmont Mini magenta printing plate was one of the first printing plates I ever got of Cutch.  At the time I had already quit MySpace and those annoying popup Tshirt ads featuring Christina Lucchi Model Hopkins.

But that picture is just as famous today as it was 10 years ago.
Look to Twitter for proof.

It is going to be a fun October.
I have been working on posts for this month long event for about 9 months.
I am open to any suggestions tho...
