AHSC #46 - Chocolate!

I am down to the wire with this post, that is for sure.  I am still trying to get back into the swing of things creatively after being sick but I thought today would be the day to get me back on track. I attended my first every Mother / Daughter crop today and well I knew that I would not get a great deal of stuff done today as my daughter is only 6, but I thought I could squeeze in a card or two in between helping her out, boy was I wrong. I did get 90% of the card done but sitting in my room with just minutes to spare to get it uploaded in time and I still needed to do the stamping on it, so it is not 100% to my standards but after scrapbooking the day away with a 6 year old, I am just happy to have something to submit!

As for the crop today, it was awesome. I have 3 wee little girls all under the age of 6 and it is not often I get one on one time with them and not for a whole day. She did amazing, she got 7 double page spreads done for her scrapbook done and she made 3 cards. She was the youngest one there and the hardest working next to our dear friends daughter who also worked very hard on a memorial scrapbook for her recently deceased father.  What I loved the most was seeing the next generation preserving their memories. Towards the end of the day the hostess of the crop asked if we should do another mother daughter crop and my wee one resoundingly said YES, but only if it was on her and mommy's. Upon further clarification for the other kids there she said it was ok for other kids to go with their mommy's but she was the only one to go with me, she did not want to share with her sisters which on face value seems kind of selfish but with 3 little ones it is not easy to fit in one on one time and it just reminded me of how important that time is for the little ones. 

 All products are Close to my Heart, the Stamp set is a retired Stamp of the Month and the paper package is Clementine (retired). 

Thanks for stopping by!

I agree that one on one time with our children is totally important, and glad you were able to do that with your daughter. I think you should do a post with her creations.....I think that would be just fabulous. Great card, I think it is superb! Being a mom of 3 I can totally relate!
