Welcome to the monthly BOM Challenge for February 2013

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.

Most influential people: Who has influenced you most in your life? Why? You don’t have to have a photo of the person- but how has this person made a difference? How are you better because of them? If you could sum up one word how that person influenced you to be the person you are today- what would that be?

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 the Most Influential People in your life.

Here’s a fun BOM topic- Memorable Smells – what smell really takes you home- that place of family & comfort- find or take a picture to help portray that smell to everyone & describe it & how it makes you feel.

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.

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.

There won't be any voting, but I'll be posting the LOs here on the front page to make it easy for someone to catch up if they are coming in late or missed a few days:

I know who was most influential on my life and the smell I loved best. This will be fun and something I can do with my daughter.

Welcome everyone- I think I have everyone added correctly at the top... please check me.

I have drill this weekend so probably won't get much scrapping done- anyone plan on a scrap day?

I plan on two scrap days! But I fear I will get only one, hubby might now want to clean the house all by himself.
