Challenge extended.....

Awhile back I decided to do my very first blog Challenge. See this post.

The reason why I decided to this challenge is stated in this post.

I am really serious about this challenge and would like as many people as possible to participate. I know we are all busy and maybe 2 weeks was not enough. I would be will to extend the challenge for an extra 2 weeks. Which would make this a month long challenge.

Challenges are fun! But this is not the point for me.

OUR CHILDREN are the FUTURE.

They need to be equipped to deal with the CRUEL world we live in...

They need to know that life is not all full of well paved roads and that they will encounter a lot of potholes...LOL

I am not only going to make this a challenge for mother's of little girls, but for our boys too. They will become MEN one day and in our culture it is shameful for men to show emotion. They feel like they have to be strong all the time. So they tend to hold things inside. They need to know that they are BEAUTIFUL TOO.

So again, This is not just for girls...

And you don't have to be a mother, this could be a message to a niece, granddaughter, cousin, or friend....

The new date will be Monday February 11th.

I will announce the winners Tuesday February 12th.

Does this work for you. Or is this still not enough time?

Here are the details: You can create a one page layout or mini album honoring that special child in your life. I will select 3 winners. You will receive a package from me chalked full of goodies. That simple. The deadline is Monday February 11th. You can post a link to your blog, showing your layout.

Let me know! I am halfway done with my own mini album for my daughter. I will post a preview tonight. My camera died, as most of you know and I have to use my dh's cell phone. Boohoo. Won't be long until I get a new one. Can't wait!

Stay tuned....

What a great challenge! I'm glad to have stumbled upon your blog today--maybe it'll get my creative juices working and I can honor one (maybe all?) of my kids as well. I'll update as soon as I've got it done! Thanks for the inspiration! :)
