15 Dec

We are celebrating that God has blessed My Paper Treehouse with an awesome design team.  Please hop along with us and visit each of the DT members. If you get lost or just found the hop start here.

You should have arrived here from Maritha’s blog.

Her blog was not co-operating with her, but her ITEM for you was the SKETCH! So be sure to pick that up!

Each of the DT members have a wonderful story to share with you about what God has done and is doing in their lives… these are God’s fingerprints.  Not only do we have a ton to share with you but there are RAKs along the way, a Great Blog Hop Challenge with a prize and a wonderful Grand Prize from Artful Delight.

Yesterday I did a post called THE MOST IMPORTANT BLOG POST EVER.  I know that you are on a hop and that sometimes we try to move through these quickly.  But I encourage you all to at least look briefly at my blog post from yesterday and if you do not have time, come back and read the whole post.  Being on the MY PAPER TREEHOUSE design team, is not something that came around by any coincidence for me.  It is my belief in God that makes me say this.  I have a few things that have happened in my life that border on AMAZING, and my placement with this team is one of those events.  How the events have unfolded all lining up that I would have my MOST IMPORTANT BLOG POST EVER just posted the day BEFORE this blog hop is amazing to me.  The most amazing part is that I had no control over when I could post my project that I shared today, as I had to wait until another blog that I design for posted the project first.  If you can see what I am trying to convey to you, you can understand that it is truly a blessing to be able to share a very important message I want to share with families, everywhere.

If you are a mom, a grandma, an aunt, a sister or a friend you will hopefully appreciate the message in my MOST IMPORTANT BLOG POST EVER.

I strongly believe that I was gathered into the MY PAPER TREEHOUSE family for this reason alone.

Here is just a peek at the project from that post.

We have a blog hop challenge for you…. as you stop at each of the Design Members they will have another item that you will need to add to your layout.  All layouts need to be linked up on the My Paper Treehouse Blog by Sunday the 19th 11:59pm PST.

    I was going to come back to read the post… but I felt the need to read it right away.
    I want to be like an elephant to protect my child. Before you mention the tears, my face was all wet… I saw the protection and I saw the need of doing the same for my family.
    Thank You so much for such powerful post.
    I´ve been twice to a Time Out for Women, and both times were amazing.

    Ok… off to keep hopping!!!
