Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Blog Hop




Hello!

Welcome to the 

Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks Blog Hop!


You should have arrived here from the oh-so-amazing Lorena's blog!  

If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of all the fun, Jennifer McGuire's blog!

In case you get lost along the way, I will have the complete hop listing at the end of my post.

Big Thank you to Taheerah Atchia (organiser/admin) and Veronica Zalis (admin) respectively, for all the behind the scenes that went into putting this mega hop together!

Let's get started, shall we?

I love this Paper Crafting Community that I'm part of.  I'm constantly amazed and inspired by everyone.  This group, very large group of people, have thee biggest hearts.

So back in September, the wonderful Alicia Thelin messaged me, she asked me, yes, little 'ole me, if I wanted to collaborate with her on Creative Remix Challenge for Paper Crafts!

Flattered? YES!

Unfortunately, Card Creations: Volume 13, isn't going to be published next year but I wanted to share one of the two cards that was picked up for it.

This Thank you is dedicated to the amazing people of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine:



cardstock:  Papertrey Ink kraft  paper:  Carta Bella/Ahoy There/Waves & World Traveler stamps:  Stampin’ Up/Another Thank you, Avery Elle/ Knotty Photopolymer Stamps
ink:  Fresh Ink/Teal, Zing White embossing  other:  My Minds Eye/Just Splendid/Record it/Wood dots

Thank you for all that you've done for this awesome Paper Crafting Community!!!

I totally remember the fabulous Susan Opel chatting with me at Winter CHA 2013.  She looked directly at me and encouraged me to submit.

I'm not quite sure what we'll be without them.  They've brought so much into our lives and brought us all together.

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.  — Anaïs Nin

Just a note...


paper:  Amy Tangerine/Plus One/Pal, Paper Accents/Vellum, American Crafts/Cards/Sunflower Glitter  stamps:  Jane’s Doodles/Doodle Flowers II  ink:  Staz On Black, Hero Arts Hues/Black, Sharpie Pen/fine point/black paint:  Artist’s Loft Fundamentals Watercolor Pan set

Live the life you love. Love the life you live.
