Mason's Benefit Blog Hop

Feb 19, 2012

Welcome to 
Mason's Benefit Blog Hop!



Helping Mason
I'm so glad you are reading this. Mason is a sweet 3 year old boy who has endured a lot of medical problems from such a young age. THIS is THE LINK where you can read about young Mason's life. It was recently updated by his mother, Dana. We are sending cards of encouragement to Mason and his family to uplift their spirits. 
If you just came from Snap Schotts, then you're in the right place. If you want to start from the beginning, you can go to Monica's Creative Madness.

The challenge

Create an Encouragement Card with the outside being for Mason and the inside for his parents that will be mailed to the family. What's nice about THIS blog hop is that YOU, the reader, get to participate in this challenge as well!
