Well, starting my new scrapbook this week "All about Me". I feel so funny making pages about me because it is always someone else....never me !!! So glad to be in this challenge and it makes me do this for myself. I know that in the future...Derrick, my grandkids and great grandkids will appreciated looking back on the year 2009-10.
I can not imagine what the world will be like 50 to 100 years from now but my future family can look back and see what life was like in 2009. This is one of the reason I scrapbook and the other is for Derrick. I want him to be able to look back and see his life from birth until the present day. I want him to see how much he is loved and his life growing up through the years. These are the reasons that I scrapbook!!

Will be starting today :)

"Book of Me"

The purpose of this project is to scrap yourself! You are an important person, rather it be in the eyes of your spouse, children, parents, etc. You spend so much time scrapping everyone else, it's time to tell your story!

Every Sunday, I will post a new challenge. There are 21 total. You can do all if you wish, or you can do what you want! The idea is that this is YOUR book. After each challenge, you can post your creation, or keep it to yourself. This is not something you have to sign up for, and you are not obligated to share/participate/fulfill any requirements! This is simply to encourage each other!

CHALLENGE #1 - Title/Dedication page
(Challenge #2 will be posted October 4, 2009)

Design a title page for your Book Of Me. The only requirement is that you should include a dedication and short explanation of why you are making this book.

Some Hints:
Before you start, you might want to think about an overall theme for your book. Perhaps a unifying colour scheme or maybe a consitent layout style... something that ties all the pages together.

Think about who your audience will be. Perhaps your children aren't too interested in your life story yet, and maybe never will be depending on how often you told them stories! But think of your grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Your life will be considerably different from theirs and they WILL be interested.

Keep it personal. Let your layouts reflect your personality. Remember that you don't have to share it if you don't want to, and you can keep as much or as little information in it as you choose.

Leave some room for updates!
