thank you for this nice blog hop.I have enjoyed it.
I've been to all the blogs but
Clear Scraps http://clearscraps.typepad.com/ wasn't update.
my sentence: TRY NOT .(to be.......) A PERSON OF SUCCESS BUT A PERSON OF VALUE.

I think this is a very true sentence for everyone, not only scrapping people.

Beth Hallgren said...

Same here "Try not .. .. a person of success, but a person of value.

So much inspiration on these blogs.

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Amy said...

I also was unable to find info on the blog hop on Clear Snap. I'm thinking this happened last time too. I love these hops!
Without the missing words....
"Try not...a person of success, but a person of value.

Thanks SwirlyDoos!

PamS said...

The words I found on these amazing blogs...Try not to become a person of success but a person of value.

I had a wonderful time on this blog hop. The projects that I saw were out of this world. I think it is amazing to see how different people see a piece of paper and turn it into something that will be cherished by family and friends. I came away with so much inspiration and many more ideas on what I want to do with my scrapbooking. And I have 3 more blogs on my bookmark page to check out for more inspiration later on. Thankyou for putting this blog hop together.

Jolaine Frias said...

Ok, the sentence I have is: "Try not to become a person of success, but a person of value!" I am printing this quote and putting it up w/ my other quotes. I sell Pampered Chef, and they are always talking about success. But, really, I need to be valued, and then the success will come on it's own.

Thank you for a beautiful hop! I can't wait until after Christmas when I can sit down w/ my kit and actually have TIME to create a few Christmas pages!!

Merry Christmas!!!
