Friends, Love, Faith Blog Hop



Welcome to the very first Friends, Love, Faith Blog Hop!  I am honored to be a part of a group of women that are willing to put their love of God out there so that others can see Him and what He can do through their hands.  I have been beyond blessed by Him and have no other option than to give Him back the very things He has given me...  :) 
Bienvenida a la primera Rayuela de Paper Tree house Studio: Amigos, amor, y Fe.  Estoy muy honrada de ser parte del grupo de mujeres que están dispuestas a demostrar su amor por Dios delante de otros y con la intención de que otros vean lo que El crea a través de nuestras manos.  El me ha bendecido tanto que no me queda de otra que el devolverle lo que ya me ha otorgado... :)

Find a notebook and jot this down, you will need it:
1. My name is Nana Campana
2. My blessed words are: "Trust in the Lord with all of your heart...
Busca una hoja de papel para que copies esto, lo vas a necesitar:
1. Mi nombre es nana Campana
2.Mis "Blessed words" son: Confía en el Señor con todo tu corazón.

Now, here is how it works:
Así es cómo funciona:

Welcome to Paper Tree House Studio's Friends, Love, and Faith Blog Hop. Today, we're out in force on the internet -- showing our faith and giving the glory to God. United, we stand as Christian paper crafters and blog owners to make a presence on the internet for all to see. If you are hopping with us, you should have hopped over from Paper Tree House Studio. If you happened to just come across this post and you want to join in on the fun, make sure you jump over to the beginning so that you do not miss out: Paper Tree House Studio.
Bienvenidos a la Rayuela Amigos, Amor, y Fe de Paper Tree House Studio.  Hoy estamos unidas con fuerza en el internet--demostrando nuestra fe y dándole gloria a Dios.  Unidas estamos como diseñadoras Cristianas y dueñas de blogs para dar a reluccir nuestra fé a todos los que nos visiten.  Si estás saltando con nosotras hoy, debes estar llegando aquí de el blog de Paper Tree House Studio. Si apenas acabas de encontrar esta página y deseas saltar con nosotras debes ir al principio de la rayuela que se encuentra en Paper Tree House Studio.

We're celebrating the theme of faith and we're happy to share our projects with you based on the verse:
"...those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:31)
Estamos celebrando el tema de la fé y estamos feliz de poder compartir contigo nuestros proyectos basados en este verso:
"...pero los que confían en el Señor, renovarán sus fuerzas; volarán como las águilas: correrán y no se fatigarán, caminarán y no se cansarán." (Isaías 40:31)


First, we would like to take a moment to thank our generous co-sponsors: Zutter, Paper Trunk, Create 365, Memorable Seasons, Scrapbook News and Review, as well as Papperie. Together with Paper Tree House Studio, these companies have donated some wonderful prizes for today's blog hop.
Prizes? Oh, yeah! There will be three lucky grand prize winners for today's event.

To enter, simply hop through the blogs and take note of all of the participating DT members of Paper Tree House Studio, and make sure to jot down the "blessed words" they will have in their post, and leave a comment on their posts. Once you gather all of the words, you will have another special Scripture to inspire you to create while leaving His legacy. Then send us an email at mypapertreehousedt@gmail.com listing each of the staff members who participated in today's hop and the completed Scripture. It's that easy. All entries must be received by Monday, February 28, 2011 at 12 noon, EST and seven winners will be randomly chosen to win.
Para poder calificar, simplemente sigue el ritmo de la rayuela saltando de blog en blog siguiendo el orden descrito en cada blog.  Mientras salta toma nota de las muchachas del equipo de diseño y escribe las "blessed words" que te van a dar conjunto a su nombre.  Debes dejar un comentario en su blog y luego envíar un e-mail a mypapertreehousedt@gmail.com con todas las "blessed words" que recogiste.  Entonces notarás que vas a tener otro versículo que te inspirará.  Realmente es fácil.  Todos los e-mails deben ser recibidos para el Lunes, 28 de febrero de 2011 a las 12 del mediodía EST.  De estos e-mail se escogerán 7 ganadores.

What are the prizes?

This is the project I have created for this hop:
Este es el proyecto que creé para esta rayuela:


I was inspired by the Scripture: "...those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:31)
Fui inspirada por el verso de la rayuela:  "...pero los que confían en el Señor, renovarán sus fuerzas; volarán como las águilas: correrán y no se fatigarán, caminarán y no se cansarán." (Isaías 40:31)

I just had the terrible experience of losing a co-worker to the battle of cancer.  She was a very sweet woman and left a hole in many people's lives (including her 3 and 5 year olds.)  I created this canvas for my friend Michelle who was really struggling to come to terms with the death of her best friend Kareema.  After I finished creating it I painted over everything except the word "God" using the white Glimmer Glam.  I did this on purpose since I wanted to remind Michelle that even though our lives become foggy, God is ALWAYS there and visible if we are willing to see Him.  :) May this be a reminder in all of our lives too...
Apenas hace una semana tuve la muy mala experiencia de que muriera una compañera del trabajo.  Ella luchó contra el cáncer por varios años y falleció dejándo atrás dos niños pequeños.  Yo creé este canvas para su mejor amiga Michelle, quién quedó muy desconsolada con la muerte de Kareema.  Depués de que terminé con el diseño lo pinté todo (menos el corazón y la palabra Dios) con el Glimmer Glam blanco de Tattered Angels.  Hice esto pues quería recordarle a Michelle que aún cuando nuestro mundo se vuelve oscuro y nublado, Dios siempre está presente y es visible si miramos hacia El.  Ojalá y El siempre mantenga esto en nuestras mentes..

Now, I have a little surprise for you: if you become a follower of my blog and you leave me a message you could win the following:
Ahora les tengo una sorpresita: si decides seguir mi blog y me dejas un mensaje te podrías ganar lo siguiente:


AND THIS/ Y ESTO:

 

The next stop on this blog hop is Wendy Sween.
Ahora pasa por la otra parada en la rayuela: Wendy Sween.

Thanks for playing along... 
Gracias por jugar...


Love in Christ,
Besitos en Cristo,

Nana
