Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks! Blog Hop


I am so pleased to be participating in the amazing blog hop that the fabulous Taheerah has organized in order to honor the incredible work and friendship that the ladies at PaperCrafts have created for all of us in this fabulous paper crafting community.  You are liking arriving from Jessica's blog.  Words truly can't express the sadness my heart feels from knowing that PaperCrafts will no longer be in existence. Over the years, the team has brought so much love and creativity in this community. From the cheers when you win a challenge, get published or watch a friend win one of the amazing competitions such as Gallery Idol, the whole time you know the focus was on bringing new creativity to an amazing paper crafting community and creating new friendships. I'll be forever grateful for the many friendships that the PC&S team has opened up for me.  Susan is our all time best cheerleader and connector of friends.  The card below thanking the PC&S team might seem a bit strange, but it is part of my story with PC&S.  Most of my cards picked up for publication had a religious theme. Susan always loved them and would encourage me to create more, so I thought it only fitting that my thank you card highlights a beautiful verse from Verve as a final thank you, but certainly never a goodbye to the PC&S team.


For your next stop, pop on over to Mariana's blog for continued inspiration and a wonderful tribute to the PaperCraft's team that has brought so much to this fabulous crafting community

Lynn, your card and post are so lovely. The sentiment speaks so encouragingly to the staff; I know God will take good care of them as they begin new endeavors. We will all miss PC&S. Bev
