Welcome to the monthly BOM Challenge for March 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.

Collections: What do you collect? Do you have a collection you’ve worked on for a long time? Are you picky about the items within the theme for your collection? Is it small or large? Does it spill over into other areas of your home’s decoration? What got you started collecting this item- did someone give you something and it has grown or is it something you’ve always liked and gathered as time has gone on? Tell the story about what makes it special. Is there a star in the collection that you prize above the others? Take some photos of the collection to go with your narrative about it.

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 something you collect.

Here’s a 2nd & fun BOM topic- When you leave the house- whether it be to go to work or just out- what must you carry with you no matter what? Take a photo of those critical objects and explain why you must have them.

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 :jump:

Is the prompt what we collect? or is it what do we have to have on hand when we leave the house? Sorry I haven't done this challenge yet to know which is the right prompt.

I'm going to assume my patterned paper stacks don't count, right?

Sue- there is a main topic- the collection & a second fun topic- the what you must have with you. So 2 different pages. Does that help?

You are so funny Pat - nooo- that's not what I had in mind- but you are right- us scrappers do COLLECT lots of pretty papers Now if you framed each one & displayed it somehow- that would meet the criteria... Not that I'm trying to give anyone ideas here...

What happens if that is all you collect...and as my husband says is overtaking the house.
I guess I could do why I don't collect stuff. Hmmm..
I'm so far behind but want to play. Work has been tough and I don't see it getting better for several weeks. Now i think I'm getting a cold so that doesn't help. I guess I will continue to stalk this forum until life lets me scrap.

It helps, thank you. I know exactly what I collect besides scrap supplies. I will play along.

Jacki - just pick 1 - something that has particular sentimental value or maybe one that has fun memories tied to it - or take a picture of a couple- then randomly pick one.
