Welcome to the monthly BOM Challenge for April 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.

Favorite Color: What is your favorite color? Do you have a reason why it is your favorite? Do you predominately like to wear this color? Do you decorate your house or a room in your home with this color? Is it associated with other things like a team, an animal, or something else? Make a page using a monochrome theme of your favorite color- neutrals: black, whites, browns, grays are allowed.

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 favorite color.

Here’s a 2nd & fun BOM topic- You have the time & the funds to travel anywhere in the world for a 2-week stay. Where would you go & why? Is this a dream vacation? Where your ancestors came from? Whatever the reason- scrap it

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

Julie- no pictures required- that's the beauty of a BOM- it will be a mix of pages with & without pictures because you are telling things about you & sometimes there just isn't a picture to go with it- but that's okay

Hi everyone- I am in sunny FL for the week. We drove over 100 miles in the rain Sunday, got here Monday, picked up my in-laws and today we are waiting for them to get ready so we can go to Disney. My fil has terminal cancer & he wanted to go to Epcot & Universal. So here we are. He moves slow- so it will also be a relaxing trip- we aren't in a rush anywhere. This is completely for him- so we are moving at his speed. With all the stress I've been under lately- that's not a bad thing. Not sure when I can check in again- maybe tonight- maybe tomorrow- maybe not till I get back- we'll take it as it comes. Hope everyone has a great week

Just saying - I HAVE a page idea for this month. I'm not sure I'll have TIME to execute it, but I have an idea.

Gads - I'm not sure going back to work was worth it. :-P

I thought I had a monochromatic layout that worked for this but realized that it wasn't just neutrals on it!

Hi all,
My name is Susan. This challenge has inspired me to finally start my BOM. I decided to use a spiral artist's book. Here is my entry for favorite color. TFL!

Well- the month is almost over & we have 2 entries- I've been super busy this entire month- and I guess everyone else has been too.
