Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking - Grand Farewell Blog Hop




I am not like alot of the bloggers on this hop.  
I am not well known.
I have not been blogging cards for long.
And you will not find any of my cards in a magazine.

What you will find in common is the love for the magazine.  
The inspiration, the creativity, the awe and wonder of seeing something that you connect to immediately.
An overwhelming desire to express yourself and create.

To all of the people connected with Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking magazine, I thank you.  I thank you for the countless hours, sacrifices and deadlines... to bring us all the images that uplifted us all..and countless hours saving us from the boredom of a flight..or enhancing the fun of relaxing on vacation with the current issue to just wrap ourselves around it, wander around and get lost in the art within.   A special treat as we soaked in the tub... you know what I mean, the luxury of having all that awesomeness in your hands to look at over again and again.....

We could lose ourselves.. Find ourselves.  Express ourselves and be free to inspire and be inspired.

I will create and be thankful that I was able to experience even one little bit of it.  

Thanks for coming by.  I truly hope you will hop around to all and say hello, acknowledge all the designers and creators, editors and writers, contributors and sponsors, manufacturers and every single person dedicating their time to such an amazing cause.  

Farewell, but not to be forgotten Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine.
