I started this, but didnt get far LOL. For each of my three kids I used a bobunny 8 by 8 chipboard album and designed the album itself about each kid with their initial, then with a pic of that child and me on the cover..... so they each have their own album about me, and then i have a 12by12 of my own (for when im older, or if the inevitable happens sooner than later, for my husband ) will post pics later. Oh and neither my husband or kids know about these.... they will be secret until they/we are older.... or they have the joy (cough cough wink wink) of going through my scrap room LOL
I can't wait to do a BOM, I just need to go to my parents house and dig out pics of me when I was a kid.... sadly, my dad took a lot of SLIDES, so it is going to take some work to find them and get them "digitized"
Wow! Was directed to this thread in hopes of finding just one simple idea to fill in a few pages with in my "life" scrapbook and WOW was I floored at all of the AMAZING ideas! All of you are GREAT! Can't wait to try out a lot of these ideas!
I've been working on an A-Z book of me. I'm having a blast doing it, but I see tons of great ideas on the Forum. I'm sure I'll go beyond the A-Z eventually. I don't have that many pages done. You can see a few in my gallery. Fun stuff!
Making one right now for my parents. Have tried and tried to get mom into scrapping (her best friend does, lol) but she's not interested. Decided to make books about me, and then make some about my sisters - she has too many great pics just to be kept in boxes under end tables! The first is coming out great - and it makes me appreciate my childhood and family a lot more too!
Love all these ideas, especially letters to myself at different ages. I also think a good idea that goes along with family tree and grandparents is the stories about our families. The stories that get told over and over when we all get together and we laught about, or cry about. How often do these awesome stories get written down for future generations of our family? How will my grand-daughter every know about how her great-great-grandfather proposed or what life was like on the farm when her great-grandmother was growing up? Even short little anecdotes with our pictures can be a priceless addition! Keep scrapping!!
This is an awesome thread, I have started one that I called From Me to We, starting with a page titled that with a pic of me and Dh and then continuing to start with all my baby pics, only have a few pages done and was planning on doing the same for him, but after reading all these great ideas, i may just do a separate BOM with some of the pics I have and add all these wonderful ideas to it to pass to my children, so many great ideas I never even thought of! Thanks so much
