Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine Swan Song Blog Hop!





Hey Y'all!!

Hope all is well. If y'all came from Trinh's Blog you are at the right place. So....here is probably one of the most hardest blog posts that I EVER had to write.....man.....this is super hard. When I found out that Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking was closing it's doors a few weeks back I was at school and it was in an e-mail. To be honest I thought it was a fake but as soon as I read it about twelve times then I knew it was true. Man.....PC and S has been a part of my life since 2004. This is was one of the first Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazines that I ever bought:

When I saw these awesome cards in the magazine I thought "I could do this....I know I can!" This magazine helped me with my first mass production Christmas Cards for the staff at Montclair and Ashley Elementary Schools. After that....I.WAS.HOOKED!!! I decided a few years later that I would give the submissions a try. It took me a while but my first publication was in the Holiday Cards and More Volume 4. It was a Reindeer Jar and that same jar is on the cover of this book:




Man..... the Crew(new and old) of Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking have been a part of my life for ever seems like and these ladies are the coolest people that I know!!! They always knew the coolest trends and stuff and just Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking was the COOLEST magazine around!!! Here are some pics of some of these AWESOME ladies:




I am so honored to know these ladies(and Matt) from Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine(PK, Jennifer, Cath, Brandy, Susan, Kerri, Stacy, Holly, Matt, Melinda, the Go To Gals and ladies of old as well.....I love you all and thanks for "Making My World Brighter!" I wish y'all all the best and I LOVE YOU all and THANK YOU for the inspiration and the fun!! The next blog on this hop is Angie!

Love,

Tenia Nelson
