So, it’s Tuesday, OH is back to work, my friend is going home, and everything is pretty-much back to normal after the festivities.
I have lots of intentions for projects this year, and I want to do a more personal scrapbook, something that would be fun to do, but would me even more meaningful than simply a book on things I like!
I really like the challenges in the book, as a tool to do something a little different. However, scrapbooking about yourself is never the easiest thing to do, so, looking at ideas on how to go about this I came across the ABC book.
The ABC book, is as simple as it sounds, starting with A, you scrapbook something for every letter all the way to Z, this way you end up with a 26 page scrapbook that is full of variety. There are many ways to approach this of course, for example
–Scrap-per-letter – everything you like, beginning with each letter, makes pages full of words, pictures etc that don’t have anything in common except they all begin with the same letter (e.g.: A, Animals, Apples, Annoying my little brother/sister, etc) with a picture, some writing, embellishment or photo for each thing.
-Title-per-letter – Choose a title, beginning with the letter in question, and do a page for this title. (This is obviously a lot less random that SPL but can be a little more in-depth)
I’ve seen others, and by all means do something different if you want to, but want to join in with the challenge.
WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?
Using the book, I am going to choose a random challenge, from the many included, set the letter in question and that’s it! Every couple of weeks I will post a new challenge and letter (That’s 2 a month).
You can do as few or as many as you like. Your job is to create a page, using the letter and the challenge (or you could just choose to use the letter or the challenge).
If you email me a picture of your completed page I will post the ones I receive, on the blog, along with a link to your page/blog/website if you include it.
I would appreciate if people would link back to me, and also credit the book if you are taking part and posting your progress online.
Closing for submissions to the blog will be the day after the next challenge is posted – e.g. I will post part 2 on the 16th, so closing will be 17th for part 1. It will be posted on the 18th.
(Personally I will be doing a title per letter, including all the challenges, using A4 paper/card in poly pockets in a ring binder as this is also a format I haven’t tried yet).
Challenge: Part 1
Challenge: Create a page that represents your life using photos of things that surround you.
I hope you will join in.
