REFUGEE WEEK BLOG TRAIN



To be “our brothers’ keepers,” that is, to care for and assist our fellow man whenever and wherever possible is a basic tenet of Christian belief. Refugees have a great need for such care and assistance. Those of us, who have been fortunate enough to live our lives in relative comfort and freedom, can only imagine the terror and hardships of people forced to leave their home and country. To quote Antonio Guterres"While every refugee's story is different and their anguish personal, they all share a common thread of uncommon courage: the courage not only to survive, but to persevere and rebuild their shattered lives." Anything that we can do to reward and assist such courage has to be the right thing to do.

In an effort to help promote awareness of the plight of refugees, this blog train was organized by Toucan Scraps (Angela Coles). You might find it interesting to visit the Refugee Week website at

I’m sure I have put together far too large a kit (SANCTUARY) but I have had the good sense (rare, but it does happen occasionally) to create small zip files so you can pick and choose which bits you would like to have. Once you have downloaded everything you want don’t forget to visit the other blog train designers listed at the end of this post.

I have put together several KwikPages in two sizes.  Some of these KwikPages were designed for journaling only but, of course, pictures could be placed on top of the journaling block.  The papers used in the first two KwikPages (packaged in Paper sets 1 and 2) were created using, to the best of my knowledge, public domain images.

The kit is gorgeous and a wonderful reminder of those that do not have what we do. It's a shame that 4 shared can't realize that. For the elements and paper, it took approx. 45 minutes of waiting to get to the 9 downloads. An then, with my high speed internet, it only took 30 secs to get the lovely items that you made. Many designers and scrappers are looking for other options since 4 shared is trying to force everyone to pay for their services now.

Thank you for "re-printing" the journaling from Bernadette1's wonderful layout. It is good to be reminded that we should not only practice tolerance but, as a people, strive for acceptance.

And thank your for this incredible kit. It's lovely.
