Welcome to the monthly BOM Challenge for February 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.

Most influential people: Who has influenced you most in your life? Why? You don’t have to have a photo of the person- but how has this person made a difference? How are you better because of them? If you could sum up one word how that person influenced you to be the person you are today- what would that be?

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 the Most Influential People in your life.

Here’s a fun BOM topic- Memorable Smells – what smell really takes you home- that place of family & comfort- find or take a picture to help portray that smell to everyone & describe it & how it makes you feel.

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

Please let us know the name you like to be called if it isn't in your signature block.

There won't be any voting, but I'll be posting the LOs here on the front page to make it easy for someone to catch up if they are coming in late or missed a few days:

If we completed the milestones late, do we post it here so everyone can see it?

This is going to be another emotional scrap! Not so thrilled about scrapping my Mom, but it will force me to think about the positives in her, which is good. I LOVE the smell topic, and I know exactly what I am going to do!!! Loving this challenge

I've been looking for pictures for this, I'm going to make mine about my grandmothers and my mom. One of my grandmothers almost never had her pictures taken, I want three pictures, one of each of them with me. The only picture I have been able to find is a Polaroid that was taken on my 18th birthday, I'm 50!!!

That's the spirit. I think it's one of the hardest things for me to do is hand over the camera & ask someone to take a photo of me. Why is that so hard?

Artesha & Rhonda - I completely understand about last month's as I'm doing the very same thing. Had a project that was on a time table I had to finish so my personal page got bumped But it's time to get back on track.

Found a photo.

I have to finish my Round 4 Swirlydoos canvas first.

I've got my February Paper Mixing Bowl project to finish as well, but I think I have another week before it's due, so I should be able to relax and get my BOM page done first.

Either way, I at least have a photo, and I think I have a plan too. We'll see.

I have the perfect photo that I want to scrap for last month's BOM subject, but I have never scrapped a wallet size photo before and I don't want it to get lost in the layout...does that make sense?

I understand the dilemma- I've done it by matting it with at least 2 colors that the first one next to the photo helps the photo pop (contrast) & the next layer compliments the photo but pops the first layer- can you see that? Then use that to place on your page- you can even punch the edges of the 2nd layer. Overall you are making the photo a little bigger & therefore easier to work into the page.

Or- make a film strip frame & place it in that- sometimes that works best for that size photo- you can do a continuous frame with the film strip & put in a journal box next...

Hope that at least gets the creative thought gears turning.

You'll get there Kim - I have printed many sketches, plus have books from CTMH with sketches & ideas- many time I browse thru those until something clicks. I'll earmark a few prospects then walk away for a bit- then come back & review what I marked. Sometimes I end up back at searching but many times I decide on one. You can also go to the main gallery & search for "sketch" to get ideas & inspiration.

I CAN actually see that, Char. I am going to browse the gallery today to see if I can spot some wallet sized photos used on layouts. I wish that I had a larger sized photo, but of course there are copyrighting issues because it was taken by a professional photographer. Anyway, I will take your advice and mat the photo (without adhering anything down permanently yet) and see how it works, Char. Thanks for being so helpful!

Did you know if you scanned the photo & altered it in any small way that it is no longer copyrighted? It's true- so if you have access to a scanner- scan it in, touch it up a bit & then get it printed. You may get some flack- but maybe not- still if you have altered it- it is yours to reprint

I scanned that photo and uploaded it to Walmart.com last month, but the photo came out so crappy looking! At least the lady was sweet enough not to ask for copyrights because they did put a note on it. Anyway, I will send it through to another company. I don't ever remember Walgreens giving me any grief, so I will send it through them. I don't want to use another photo because I WANT and NEED to use that photo to scrap my subject! Back to the drawing board. But I WILL get that layout done! Times like this I hate that I don't have a photo printer at home, but I will very SOON!

That's the problem!! I'm looking at 3 sketches. Trying to think of a way to incorporate the elements that I like in each one.

But, I will have plenty of time tomorrow. We are suppose to get 2 to 3 feet of snow. And every thing is already closing down!

ACU

OMGosh!! I went through an entire piece of 12x12 cardstock yesterday trying to get 4 journaling squares done. I'm using a punch on the top of them and I couldn't get it right. Then I realized I made one square too small. Then that sound I'm using, some how the last two lines disappeared. The first time ever that I didn't buy 2 sheets of that color, figured I wouldn't use that much because I was doing so little with that color and making an 8x8 spread. Dumb dumb.

Linda,

I really loved your story about the flowers.

They say memories are best recalled by scent.

I have an armoire that my grandma used as a child, then my mother used it, then I used it. My grandma used it again. When she passed away I got it and every once in awhile she sends me a memory.

Tesa that is an amazing page- LOVE it! I understand not having words to explain it.

Kim- how frustrating- maybe it's time to walk away from that project for a bit. I know when I get frustrated & I've made 2 mistakes in a row- I stop & walk away so I can regroup. I might even do another project, but usually I sit down & watch TV or get on SB.com. I've learned the hard way to take note of my frustration level as my brain stops working right & I end up getting upset. So it's easier to walk away for a few.

Oh I walked away and slept on it!! You're right you do reach a point when you are trying so hard to fix it, you just make it worse. I put one on for now, next week I will go get some paper and start over. Think I should buy two?!

I must do this challenge next month. My BOM just sits there on the shelf. The page I did was for this challenge before I stopped scrapping a few years back. Char, have you been hosting all that time?

when you scan it, make sure you scan it to a higher resolution, or if you enlarge it, your photo will be grainy. My minimum for scans anymore is 600 dpi, but I prefer 1200 dpi or higher

I scanned that photo and uploaded it to Walmart.com last month, but the photo came out so crappy looking! At least the lady was sweet enough not to ask for copyrights because they did put a note on it. Anyway, I will send it through to another company. I don't ever remember Walgreens giving me any grief, so I will send it through them. I don't want to use another photo because I WANT and NEED to use that photo to scrap my subject! Back to the drawing board. But I WILL get that layout done! Times like this I hate that I don't have a photo printer at home, but I will very SOON!

I've been looking for pictures for this, I'm going to make mine about my grandmothers and my mom. One of my grandmothers almost never had her pictures taken, I want three pictures, one of each of them with me. The only picture I have been able to\\ find is a Polaroid that was taken on my 18th birthday, I'm 50!!!



Wow- sounds like the no pictures of self has been passed down a couple generations



I agree Kim you are going to have to do something about that

I CAN actually see that, Char. I am going to browse the gallery today to see if I can spot some wallet sized photos used on layouts. I wish that I had a larger sized photo, but of course there are copyrighting issues because it was taken by a professional photographer. Anyway, I will take your advice and mat the photo (without adhering anything down permanently yet) and see how it works, Char. Thanks for being so helpful!



Did you know if you scanned the photo & altered it in any small way that it is no longer copyrighted? It's true- so if you have access to a scanner- scan it in, touch it up a bit & then get it printed. You may get some flack- but maybe not- still if you have altered it- it is yours to reprint



I never knew that

So I'm thinking yesterday that I would get the invitations done and out of my hair and work on a sample of a tag she wants for her favors. When she gets over she explains that her mom wants them by TODAY.....200 of them!!! so she can them back home and work on them. Really!! Less then 24 hour notice. So I called in my girlfriend (sent her a text that said "HELP"). She didn't even flinch and came over till 1 am helping me get 150 done. Good friend!!
So now it is back to Lego tags, invitations and oh yeah cutting journaling blocks for the Shower TODAY!!
Thanks for letting me vent!

I found the photo that I want to use - it's OLD and it's not a very "good" photo, but I love it because it captures my Grandmother's expression perfectly.

I'm excited to be scrapping it up. I won't get it done today because I have GOT to get my Paper Mixing Bowl DT project done first!

hello everyone!! I feel like I have been gone forever! I started moving by daughters back into the bigger room last week since it is closer to ours...and moving my craft room into the smaller front bedroom...then I had to work the General Store at my daughters school all day Friday...and go home for a visit with family for the weekend. My mother and Grandma got engaged and are sooo excited. They are both making room for the men in their lives and gave me tons of old photos. Now to get my room back together so I can scrap!! Hope everyone has been doing well!!
