Is it too late to participate in this challenge? will it be an ongoing thing? I think this is such a great idea! As I've gotten older and more involved in making a family of my own, I've come to realize how few tangible memories my family has left behind. This has truly come to my attention when seeing my husband's family. They have photo albums galore and paintings of relatives from the 1800's hanging in their homes. It's truly amazing the amount of tangible history they have and I have to admit that I do envie it. I wish my family had been more diligent in keeping such things. We don't have anything to tell our story. There are about 5 baby pictures of me in existence. Granted, most of them burned in a house fire when I was about 3, but I wish there were more. I am now pregnant with my first child and I can only hope that my husband and I are able to build enough memories and have things to pass on to him/her and any other future children and that they will continue to do the same for their children. How else can your familiy's legacy continue??

Can I join?

I have a BOM started with only 5 layouts in it. This monthly challenge will help me work on my book.

What a super great challenge! I'd love to play and have an idea, no photos and a perfect story for this theme.

Love the pages I've seen so far!!!

I found my BOM that I have not touched in a while so I am glad I found this. I'd like to add to it!

Thanks Jennifer! It was a fun page to do!

I'm really happy I found this challenge, and especially this month's theme - it's a topic I've had gnawing on my mind lately... And now I can't wait to see what will be up in February!

I lost my sister in 1994. I know it has been many years... but I still get very emotional speaking, typing, thinking about the wreck and what could have been if she had lived. This is the second year I have had the photos in my home waiting to be scrapped. I tried last year and could only stare at the photos. This year I actually have them down on paper. I still need to add some embellies and journal...but I did get it started!!!

Well, got it done and there haven't been anymore tears so that is a good thing. I think the journaling helped!

I posted each page separate in my gallery for a closer look at each page.

Welcome Diana, Tesa & Teri - will be updating the front in a few minutes. So glad this challenge inspires you. I know I do better when I have something to focus on. I've read thru tons of BOM ideas and topics- some are more like those email questionnaires- which really don't do much for me. Or a "what is in your purse" - while we may do something like that as a bonus topic to add some whimsy- it won't be the main challenge. Loving the LOs so far. Will be working on mine soon- have a swap to finish first then this is next

Char - for these fast girls can they do more than one of the same topic if they want?

I have many life changing events early on in my life but one popped in my head as soon as I read this. I'm with wapygirl this will be good therapy as I have never scrapped about this one (or most of the events). I wish I had more time to scrap as I probably need the therapy on many of the events in my life!

Of course you can! There is no right or wrong to your BOM.. It's your book. You can put whatever you want in it that is about you. The challenges are to help us keep motivated and focused and to give us ideas. If you can get several pages from a challenge, I would say the better. Wouldn't you, Char? I probably have about 5 Scrapbooks worth of photos of me to scrap of my life. Since the old photo albums held tons of photos.
