Some of life's best moments happen around the Kitchen Table. After dinner is put away, my kitchen table becomes my work space to record life's memories.

Welcome to the Unoffical Crop Chocolate.com blog hop!   If you are not familiar with CropChocolate, it is a great scrappy company to check out.   Tell Jon & everyone "hi"!  They are hosting a Scrappy retreat for their customers this weekend.  A group of lucky ladies are taking a pilgramage to Salt Lake City to meet, scrap, shop, and have fun.  

This blog hop is for those of us "left behind".  Or, those of us who couldn't for one reason or another make the trip.

If I were going to the retreat this weekend, I know a lot of my scrapbook pages would be about this special occasion. 

This challenge is to make a project celebrating the every day moments.

Here are a couple of examples from my personal gallery -






Please post a link to your project in the comments section of this post. Become a follower here on my new blog and you will be entered into my blog candy drawing.   I will draw a random winner for a grab bag from my personal stash next Thursday, July 5. 

Be sure to visit these other blogs for other opportunities to challenge yourself this week - Be sure to make a comment.. one lucky scrapper will win  a $10 Crop Credit on CropChocolate.com, "HomeMade" mini theme by EP, "blue Jean" paper by doodlebug and some distress inks.

  4. Thank you for this challenge. Since I am so far behind on scrapping for my 2 girls, I find I am always scrapping the events. It will be nice to just do one "just because".
