Hey everybody! Welcome to the Paper Crafts Farewell Blog Hop! You should have come from Sarah's blog Here or to start from the beginning of the hop, go to Jennifer's blog Here.
As most of you know Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine is closing down! :'( It was a very sad day for all of us, the day we heard! Paper Crafts magazine has been SUCH an inspiration to me
and helped make some dreams come true! :) I've had numerous cards chosen for their magazines, had the privilege of being asked to participate in special issues and even had some chosen, won some challenges, had a card featured on their blog, was in the Top 15 of the Gallery Idol a few years ago! And SO many friends made along the way! And not to mention how the magazine inspired me TREMENDOUSLY!!!
All this to say, I am SO Thankful and Blessed to be a part of something that was a
Huge accomplishment to me in my life! One of my dreams was to have a card on the cover, and now I'm sad to say, that it will never happen with Paper Crafts magazine! :( I haven't submitted any cards in a while and I truly regret that now! Life got busy and I just ran out of time. But, I'm still happy that my kids saw my work in them and that I can show my Grandkids the magazines one day and they will see my work and name in them. I'm sure they won't think it's real "cool", but I will! ;)
I am also VERY grateful for the continued support of PC&S for sponsoring the "Cards From the Heart Card Drive", I have for the children's hospitals on Valentine's Day! They are always so grateful in giving prizes! I am forever Grateful! Thank you!
Here is a pic of me holding all the magazines that had my cards in them. I had a pic of me holding the first issue I was published in, but that picture is now stuck on my old laptop! :(
And here is a picture of the card I made for the people at PC&S.
Thank you all SO much for being in my life, and making this girls dream come true, in having a card published and her name in print. And also, for giving to the Card Drive. My vision in helping those children, wouldn't have been fulfilled, if it wasn't for Generous Sponsors like you!Praying that all of you find jobs that you LOVE, because anyone would be lucky to have you! :)
I will miss you all! ♡
