Welcome to the monthly BOM Challenge for September 2014.

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.

Or - you could use these topics each month to work on a Smash Book of you - just share your page or pages that correspond to the topics :)

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.

These are topics to inspire you- not to be followed to the letter. So be creative. The idea is to tell YOUR story. Pictures are a plus, but not required on your pages. The idea is to work it as a smash book or regular scrapbook pages, 1-2 page layouts.

Topic 1: Daily What do you do every morning before you feel prepared for the day? This is your usual daily routine. Take photos the represent the steps you go thru. Have you ever really thought about all you do from the time you get up to start your day?

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

Topic 2: Greeting a friend - Think about your good friends. When you greet them- how do you do that? Who are those friends you turn to when you just need to talk? How about to do a project or go shopping? Who do you most like to just hang out with and craft or watch movies?

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

Topic 3: Saturday - What makes a good Saturday? Do you routinely do certain things on Saturdays? Do you use this day to do household chores? Or are Saturdays for going out, being with friends and/or family?

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

Topic 4: Reading - Do you read regularly? I’m not talking just about books- but those too- what all do you read on a regular basis? Do you subscribe to magazines? The newspaper? A blog? Is there a certain genre of books you like to read regularly? Why? What draws you to the things you read? Enjoyment? Keeping up to date? Part of your job or vocation? Recipes? Inspiration?

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

You are also welcome to share other BOM pages you make- just those not on topic won't be linked to the front

Most of all, have fun, share as much or as little as you want, give positive feedback & leave as we all need some of that about our work.

I did one but it doesn't fall into any of the categories. It is memories of my high school years. Maybe I will try one of the prompts later this month. The little book has my journaling in it.

I hear ya Pam - I have no clue if I'll get to scrap for myself or not this month. I'm doing prep for 2 craft fairs as well as a big card workshop I'm hosting. Plus I'm traveling with DH 3 days this next week. Scrap day with the girls is next Saturday. Not to mention tomorrow is my DH's annual unit Military ball (thankfully nearby in Nashville this year). I'm sure there are other things too- but I just can't put all that in my brain right now

I'm making all kinds of things- I've posted the repurposed frames in my gallery if you want to look- also the mini albums made with Picture My Life cards (like Project Life but by CTMH). As well as cards and other items. I've not had time to be as prepared as I want to me- in fact right now we are on our way to GA for an IT conference.
