Welcome to the monthly BOM Challenge for August 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.

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 of her & now she's gone & I cannot ask. Leave something for the future generations about the magical & wonderful person you are.

Timeline: Make a timeline about your life. You can start at the beginning to present or pick out just a period of time. Or you can do a timeline of all the vacations you’ve been on. A school time line. Were you in scouts or other club like 4H or karate- a timeline of that experience. Do not think a timeline as just a line. If you go on Pinterest.com & search “timeline” you will get all kinds of inspiration- circles, winding paths, blocks, zig-zags… You are welcome to do a straight line, but I challenge you not to- to do something different. Instead of saying think outside the box, I'll say think off the line. You do NOT have to be detailed. Just the highlights like:

1965 – born in Salinas, CA
1970 – started school at Prunedale Elementary
1975 – went to Disneyland for 10th b-day
1977 – learned to play the flute
1979 – graduated 8th grade
1983 – graduated from Monterey Co HS


You may want to make some of those events bigger than had most impact on your life & include just a few photos to represent those key times. Or just 1 or 2 large pictures of you & make your timeline over & thru the photos. Like I said- you are not going into a lot of detail- just highlights.

This can be a 1 or 2-page LO. No rules except the topic.


******* ******* *******

Here’s a 2nd & fun BOM topic- print the form & then scrap it on a page. If you don’t have an answer to a blank- that’s okay- do what you can- be serious or funny. This is from Ali Edwards Hello Story class on BigPictureClasses.com

YAY- welcome Vickie
I hope to get mine done- it's started, but have to get my prototype done for my 230 Christmas card order. Had a migraine yesterday & just didn't trust myself to do it.

found the photos - now trying to work on the design. HOPEFULLY something will fall into place and then the "building" will begin.

I am so excited to finally get this done. It has been in my head and then on my table for weeks, it even went on a weekend away but it was so damp there the paper curled.

This is a two pager to accommodate the time line

I want to do a childhood time line layout so badly, but my family lost the majority of my photos as a baby and a young girl during hurricane Katrina. The photos that weren't completely ruined look terrible. I guess I could start it as I got older, but I wanted to do a childhood one. Regardless, this month is ticking along and I haven't gotten one layout done yet. Painters are coming to finish painting the outside of my house on Saturday and my God son's birthday party is Saturday. Nonetheless, maybe I can get SOMETHING done. Have a Terrific Tuesday, ladies!
