Our 6th challenge in our Crafty Critters blog group was hosted by Megrod. She came up with a wonderful idea to honor National Scrapbook Month in May. Even though we are a tad late getting this going we thought it was never to late to celebrate one of our favorite craft times.

So Challenge 6 is to do a page about you to your kids. It can be about your you met their dad, your favorite wedding picture, a poem or letter to them, a page about things you like to do with them or for them, about things you love nowadays, so that the kids can look thru their albums and say...this is what my Mom used to like when she was however old, etc....hope all this makes senseThe only catch is...you have to be the main feature of the picture. Your children want to see what your hairstyle was like, the clothes etc you were wearing. I think we often forget to Scrap ourselves.
For me this was GREAT!!! I had these pictures from work and have been trying to find a way to fit them into our family books. So this was perfect! I loved it so much that I ended up creating a double page spread. The first page pictured is the one one for our challenge.
My journaling reads: The best job I have ever had is being a mommy to Mitchell and Marshall. In June 2008 I received a job offer outside of the home. After much though and a lot of talking Larkin and I made the decision for me to work part time at the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs. It's a job I love but it also allows me to make my family top priority. My job at PFSC is different from day to day and I love the challenges it presents. It even allows me to work from hom at times. Right now it's offering me the best of both worlds.

Journaling reads: The Sportsman Channel hosted a shoot at Harrisburg Hunters and Anglers for the legislators. They are one of our business affiliates. Harrisburg Hungers and Anglers is one of our clubs.
This was my first time ever shooting a gun. My instructors were wonderful and patient. Despite my nice bruise I had a great experience.
