Welcome to the monthly BOM Challenge for April 2014.

This is a monthly challenge to help those who want to make a Book of Me (BOM) or expand their BOM or just get motivated to work on their BOM. I'm making it a monthly challenge as that seems to give us all more urgency to make us work on a project. Couple it with some of the other challenges out there- Page Maps, Monthly Sketch, Monochrome, Sewing... There are so many & you'll at least get one LO done for YOU.

Or - you could use these topics each month to work on a Smash Book of you - just share your page or pages that correspond to the topics :)
So many times we scrap our family, but not ourselves- as if we are less important. I so wish my mother had put a note or something behind some of those photos of her & now she's gone & I cannot ask. Leave something for the future generations about the magical & wonderful person you are.

Topic 1: Memorable Games Create a 1 or 2 page LO about games you’ve played. Think of those that you have good memories of- group games, card games, board games, sports, etc. Pick whatever works for your pages & scrap about it. Did your family have a game night? Were you on a team? Do you have memories of playing a certain game with a friend or family member?

******* ******* *******

Topic 2: Top 10 places I want to go - Create a 1 or 2 page LO about the top 10 places you want to visit- kind of a bucket list topic. If you’ve already done a places page- then list 10 things you want to do/try. Don’t let cost limit your list. This is a dream list, not a plan necessarily. Include photos off the internet or other sources to give us a hint of what you are talking about.

******* ******* *******

You are also welcome to share other BOM pages you make- just those not on topic won't be linked to the front

Most of all, have fun, share as much or as little as you want, give positive feedback & leave as we all need some of that about our work.

No sign-up necessary- just jump right in

Please let us know the name you like to be called if it isn't in your signature block.

Great ideas! I have been going through my parents' albums and have some great photos to use.

I love Topic #2. I have two BOM layouts that I need to finish. Hoping to get them finished just for sharing this month. I will be moving in about two months, so I am trying to clean, scrap, and SMASH at the same time. Not working as well as I'd like. LOL! But I am still here...

I'm not sure why- but SB.com looks different on my screen today & I cannot comment on gallery items nor embed them

That said- Pam- your page is awesome- great job with the topic I love the tree.
