~Monthly Challenge~

This monthly challenge is similar to a book of me. Use this format example to set up a book of July and what you did all month. Take pictures, and keep records and tell stories of your events and daily happenings. Make up your own format or look one up. It doesn't matter. Also make a minimum of 5 LO's to show what you did in July. Be creative and show us who you are by writing and taking photo's all month long. Have fun with this and who knows you might want to make a years worth of special books just like this one!!
6000 pts.

An extra 2000 pts. If you make this into an album or book!

Lyn, good luck! My surgery is on the second also for the woman stuff. I cannot wait. I have been in so much pain this past week and getting worse. I feel like I am in labor.

Good luck! Will be thinking of you and praying.
