CASE STUDY 4TH ANNIVERSARY....

Happy Thursday and welcome to the fourth week of celebrating our CASE STUDY 4th ANNIVERSARY BLOG HOP!!! We have been featuring our former Muses and past & present Design Team gals throughout the month and finishing up this week!

The Blog Hop participants are sharing their latest inspirations and how they translate into their paper craft wonders. 

To be honest with you after I have seen the fabulous inspiration projects from the past weeks I was not sure which route to go....until this past Sunday. Unfortunately, my former co-worker lost her husband in a car accident. I was really humbled to see how strong she was throughout the funeral. I'm happy to say that she has a strong church body that is helping her through this difficult time and I know that her faith will definitely help her along the way!

Needless to say my inspiration comes from her strenght, our christian faith and the love for our Savior! I think this beautiful Psalm 28:2 reflects our love for HIM!!!



Here is the fabulous line up for this week...we hope you will take the time to visit....
