Join in the fun over at Paper Issues!


Welcome to the last stop for an inspiring hop with Paper Issues!

I hope that you all had fun!
You should be arriving from Thienly's blog
(and it's Thienly here again!),
but if you've missed the hop - 
here's the list, so you won't miss a thing!

Paper Issues blog:  http://paperissues.blogspot.com/
Jen Albracht Erickson:  http://shut-up-its-true.blogspot.com/
Mandy Kay Starner:   http://heyheymandykay.com/
Nina Yang:   http://waffleflower.com/

As you have probably found out through hopping, 
Paper Issues is a challenge blog.

Every two weeks, there is a new theme -
and all you need to do is to go comment for your chance to win some amazing prizes.
If you link up your project (ANY project - just have to fit the theme),
 you get a bonus entry and a chance of getting your project featured on their blog!!!

Their new theme is Believe in Yourself - 
centering around the Breast Cancer Awareness month and pink theme, 
which will be running until November 3rd.

WE are going to be sponsoring this theme and 
will be giving out $50 worth of stamps to 3 winners! 
(who wouldn't want that?)

Here are the requirements:

2. Like Paper Issues on FB
3. MUST comment on EACH of the participating blogs from the hop today.
4. Leave a comment that you did everything on Paper Issue's blog
5. Link up a project on Paper Issue's blog for a BONUS entry!
(and a chance for your projects to get featured!)

Good luck!

I found this interesting statistics through an article from healthy.net

In a study of 578 women, researchers at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London found that, after five years, 395 of the women were alive and well without relapse, while 50 were alive with relapse and 133 had died. A significantly increased risk of relapse or death occurred in those women whose psychological profiles revealed a high rate of helplessness, hopelessness and depression, while those who felt hopeful and empowered tended to have the best prognosis.

Through this research, they have found that having a 'fighting spirit
- had a much higher chance of survival.

... and 

 I also found a perfect inspirational quote, and thought that I'd share.

"Believe it can be done.
When you believe something can be done,
REALLY BELIEVE,
your mind will find the ways to do it.
Believing a solution paves the way to solution."
- David Joseph Schwartz

Thank you for taking your time to be a part of this special hop -
and hope that EVERY one of you is reminded that having courage, strength and confidence 
makes a huge difference in your lives.

Have a beautiful weekend.
Thienly

Wonderful blog hop, loved the cards, tags, layouts, decor all projects are wonderful. Loved the stamps used and the papers, all details. I love the word Believe, I have a white tattoo on the inside of my wrist of Believe and a metal plaque of the word Believe over my craft room door, and another wood stand of the word in my bedroom. I saw an awesome idea on one of the hop team members for some letters that I have and will be doing this for sure. Great hop so glad I saw all the works.
