Part One Here Part Two Here and Part Three Here

I found it quite difficult.
It is dedicated to all the fine men and women who have served their countries in so many ways, in so many places, for so many reasons - and for those who simply wish to remember. Also for those who attend such ceremonies over the weekend, to be able to scrap those "remembrance day" pictures too.

The History of the Pink Ribbon

The History of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Awareness Ribbons

In answer to a members request for a tutorial to make awareness ribbons.
I searched everywhere for one and ended up making this quick guide.

Once you have played with this guide you can be more adventurous
and add textures and designs or even reshape or create them your own way.

Each part was done on a separate layer using Preset Shapes / Vector /Antialias

Tutorial Note for another Awareness Ribbon
Thank you to MLD/Linda for finding this TUTORIAL making preset shapes from fonts in Paint Shop Pro for us!
Sharing with Class :)Remember to give credit to the fontmaker.
