    Woo hoo -- I love these challenges. I'm putting all my AAM pages in a separate album which I hope Katie and Sam will like looking at when they're older. Wouldn't you love to know what was going on with your grandmother on a regular day in her life?

    What?? Your maid didn't come in to dress you this morning, Pam? If she's unacceptable, you could post a notice in The Lady for a new one.

    I have never done this challenge before..to be honest it will be a challenge for sure as I am not one to talk much about myself nor do I take many pics of myself. My question is do I have to include a picture of myself?? (pretty dumb question i know)
    Thanks

    No rules, Erin -- just have fun! The page I did for this challenge doesn't have any pictures.

    Steph, one more thank you for you - especially after reading your page and (FB posts) about the extremely challenging times you are going through. What you wrote and usually do in your pages for these challenges gets me to look a bit more inside. A very good balance to the pretty and usually happy of the PL pages. mwahaha!

    It's a first for me too Erin! I doubt that mine will include a photo but as Linda (earlofoxford) says... no rules Don't you just love no rules?!
    I'm going to prep mine in my lunch hour tomorrow so I'm ready to roll when I get home tomorrow evening!

    Thanks for the challenge Steph... I love the prompts as it's often half the battle knowing what to write!

    Hi Erin - Like Linda said, no rules!!! I often include no photos or photos of something else that I mention in my journaling. BUT........I really encourage you to include photos of yourself some of the time!!! We all hate to be in front of the camera but I guarantee you that you and your loved ones will appreciate it later.
