Moxie Fab THANKS Blog Hop

(If you're looking for the Thanksgivings Inspiration Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY then head HERE)

The paper craft community I got to know and love has been changing and I'm not going to lye, I'm a little scared.  What started as a hobby for a way to express the creativity I had inside has grown to a full community with opportunities I've never dreamed of having.  But with growth comes change and it's natural that things never stay sedentary for long.

With the resent closing of Creating Keepsakes Magazine and Paper Crafts Magazine going full digital, seeing people that has been on my personal paper crafting journey leave and move on, was inevitable.  Cath Edvalson, once Trends Editor for Paper Crafts Magazine would be one of those individuals.  No I have never met her in person and I don't think we ever had a conversation, but she (whether she knows it or not) has been there to inspire, teach and motivate me through out my whole paper crafting journey.  So this Cath is a Moxie Fab Thanks to you.


Of course I am far from the only one that was paper touched by Cath, so as much of us as possible got together for a massive THANK YOU hug.  Yes us paper crafters send hugs via blog hop.  This awesome hop started on the Moxie Fab World blog HERE and I'm whopping #80 on the list.  You should have come my way from the awesome Joni Andaya

I've tried to compose my card in a fitting tribute to Cath with some of the many things I've learned from her and the Moxie Fab blog.
Adding texture
Movement
Rule of Thirds
Dimension
Balance
and also one that was inspired by one of her many inspiring pictures that she post to motivate us all.
Actually it's from her last post and so fitting inspiration for this occasion.

THANK-YOU CATH!!!
Thanks for all your hard work and the love you put into it.  I mean look how much people you've touched.
Now it's time to get going because believe it or not, you've just got started.
Up next is Maria Fischer.
