HELLO LADIES!!!!! This contest is a Memorial Contest for my sister Charlotte Bohn who died on February 11, 2015 after a 3 1/2 year battle with colon cancer. She was my inspiration and my other half. She was also as strong as she was beautiful.

This contest is for her and for ALL the strong women out there.
