Hi and welcome to Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Swan Song Blog Hop! If you came from Stephanie Muzzulin's Blog, you are in the right place. If not, you can start the hop from Jennifer McGuire's Blog or you can follow the links from the InLinkz list below. This is going to be a fabulous hop with lots of warm stories, laughter and tears, so grab a cup of your favorite beverage and hop along with us! =)
The people that I met after I started making cards are some of the most amazing ones and the girls from PC&S are some of the best. The magazine itself will never cease to be amazing to me. Ever since I started making cards about five or six years ago, I dreamt about having a card published in it. It took me many many tries, but the moment that I finally got my first "happy email" from the uber sweet Susan was exhilarating!
And then there is that email telling me about my first (and only) cover! Oh! I am still proud of it whenever I think about it! =) I guess what I wanted to say is that the PC&S girls probably never knew how much they meant to me. The encouragement I got really helped me boost the confidence that I so needed (and still do). You make this crafty girl so proud of herself one card at a time and I can't thank you enough for the joy and sense of accomplishment that you brought me. You will always be amazing to me! =)
Here is my first and only cover on the March 2013 Issue. The yellow Hogs and Kisses Card is mine! =) THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine! You will always have a special place in my heart!
Enough about me. =) It's time to send you to Kim Hughes/Paper Smooches Blog! Or you can follow the links below.
