THE BOOK OF ME (BOM)
Yes, you won't believe it, but yours truly is at last taking part in a challenge. This is, however, a very special challenge. Us scrappers always seem to do layouts with photographs we took of other people and we end up never featuring on any of our layouts. The same goes for the journaling ... we hardly journal about ourselves. So this is where the importance of the 'Book of Me' (BOM) Challenge lies in that we are allowed to scrap and journal about ourselves and leave a personal legacy for those generations to follow in our footsteps. At least we would have lived life here on earth, leaving a small part of ourselves behind.
So this is my INTRODUCTORY page to my BOM:
