Welcome to the monthly BOM Challenge for May 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.

Pieces of Me: a picture of yourself and words that describe you. Are you known for saying a particular phrase? What’s your style? Any other key things about you that you can fit on one page?

This can be a 1 or 2-page LO.

Here’s a 2nd & fun BOM topic- Music- do you have a favorite song? A favorite type of music? Artist? Or scrap about a great concert you attended. You can pick a certain time of your life & do more than one page- high school, college, when you first got married, etc.

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.

I don't know that I'll get it done, but I have an AWESOME concert story to do a LO of. It's when DH and I were at the same concert, and he remembers that I was there, but weren't to actually meet until a little less than a year later.

This sounds like such a cool challenge, and very challenging for me. I have several photos I can think of off the top of my head that I can scrap that have been put off for family trips, kids' books and wedding albums.

This will be fun!

I'm in again. I'll have to think about the Pieces of Me topic, but I already have 2 ideas for the music topic. Here is a concert lo I did last year, just for sharing. Although I could've put this in my BOM, because Sade is my favorite artist, the lo is not in the right format, so I will put this in my friendship album. I went to this concert with my bff of 34 years. Seeing Sade in concert was one of my "bucket list" items. She only tours about every 10 years and she is in her 50's now, so this might have been my last opportunity to see her (never know when she might retire). Now that I think about it, I might have to make a separate BOM page about this experience.

Hi Everyone! I would really love to join you in this group challenge. I am new to this site and fairly new to scrapbooking and have been thinking about doing a BOM. So it would be great to join you to give me page ideas and keep me motivated.

My printer died & we just got the new one in. Well- 2nd one- the 1st one they shipped didn't work- so we had to wait 4 days for a replacement. Now I just might get my photos printed & my page done.

Life does seem to get in the way sometime. I am relaxing, recuperating from my granddaughter's bachelorette party last night (I was designated driver). I did get supplies together for one of the layouts. Hoping to complete it later this week.

JCI - hope everyone had a great weekend
Yesterday was a lazy day overall. Got a load of laundry done, took a nap, just relaxed. Guess we need to do that every now and then- have nothing on the schedule & do next to nothing.

Well, I finally had a chance to sit down and scrap my first BOM pages on my favorite concert.

Squeaking in my "pieces of me" lo just under the wire. Didn't get to the music lo, but still plan to do it. I'm using this lo for the title page of my BOM.

what a wonderful page Susan especially as a title page to your BOM

Looking at my post yesterday I realized that I was thinking it was the last day of the month, but today is actually the last day- duh. I did not get the new challenge set up- will try to do that this morning during my next break.

If you don't finish today- feel free to share it on the next thread
