I want to scrap about my life. I have lots of ideas about what I want to put in the book- pictures, stories, family history, memorabilia, and more. My problem is I have no clue how to organ1ze this and where to start. I am not necessarily worried about chronology but need some jumping off point. Have any of you done anything like this? Do you have anything in the gallery I could view for some ideas of how to get started? Any help would be appreciated.
I don't have any BOM (Book Of Me) examples. My only advice is to tell each story as they come to you, THEN evaluate the order at a later time. Once you have the completed pieces in your hands, their natural order might become clear.
I agree with MommaSaid. Just start and the order may resolve itself later. As for where to start, pick something that you are excited to scrap and journal about. Just getting the first page done will get you over the hurdle. When I started this hobby, I wanted to make my wedding album, but starting with the wedding was too daunting. I started with the rehearsal dinner and everything flowed from there.
