Paint Party Friday: A Tea Party For Tracey!

(created at photofacefun.com)

Welcome to Week 41, Year 3 of Paint Party Friday!  This week we're celebrating the holidays PPF style.  Every week PPFers gather to share, support, and encourage each other.  As a result, Paint Party Friday has become a very close knit community...

As you probably know, our friend Tracey Fletcher King is courageously fighting breast cancer.  Tracey has been such an active and encouraging member of PPF, we thought it would be fun to surprise her with some holiday cheer and support.  And, when you think of Tracey, it's hard not to think of tea!  So...

What better way to send her some love than to have a virtual tea party?!?

Dear Tracey,

We love your spirit, your talent, your humor, and your kindness.
Every week you inspire us with your extraordinary creativity and strength.
Thank you for being such an amazing and supportive part of this community.
This week is dedicated to you!

With love,
Your PPF Family

If you've created a piece for Tracey don't forget to sign in with 
"FOR TRACEY" in addition to your name.

As always, please make sure to use your post URL address NOT your blog home page URL address as there are many late visitors who get confused as to which post is for PPF when they arrive (after Friday) at your website. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Linky, an explanation of how this tool works can be found on Week 1 and Week 2 posts.
Happy Holidays to all our wonderful friends and to your families!

P.S.  If you missed the secret announcement and would like to participate, please feel free to post twice and also email us the image so we can add it to a collage (to be added here) later in the weekend/week!

  46. Somehow my comment got chopped up so I am trying once more. Eva and Kristin, you pulled it off! This tribute party for Tracey is such a wonderful idea. Tracey is an inspiration to all of us. She is such a compassionate person that she is reaching out to others in PPF Blogland who are in the midst of trying situations. I love her humorous side and I love her caring side.
