HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013

Welcome to the monthly BOM Challenge.

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.

How many of us inherited an album of pictures with little to no notes about who or what was going on? 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 & now she's gone & I cannot ask. Leave something for the future generations about the magical & wonderful person you are.

Milestones: We are going to start out with a page about the major milestones in your life- what along the way created change? I'm not saying make a list or note everything- just those major events or changes you chose to make that changed your life. If you have quite a few I suggest pick no more than 5 (or you may not fit it into 1 LO).

This can be a 1 or 2-page LO. It does not have to have pictures, but you can put whatever you like. The only rule is it be about Your Milestone(s).

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


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

Yes!...I have sporadically been working on redoing the acid-filled photo book of my life that my mother put together many many years ago....
SO ...this will insure that I get another page done!

Do we have to sign up or can we just join in if we get it done. I would hate to commit and not get it done. And can we just join the months we can play?
