Journal Challenge: Your story!

I have noticed that for the most part, we only focus on scrapbooking the events that are deemed important. We focus on our children’s lives, not our own. We only put in the good times, and keep out the bad times.

You can make your scrapbooking album more than photo’s placed chronological order (which is important), but you can make your albums a lasting legacy of who you are: your beliefs, your life, your loves, your strengths, your weaknesses, trials that made you stronger, your hopes, disappointments, and more. Generations to come will know more about you and the time you lived in. They will learn lessons from you and share trials.

My journal challenge is for you to start your own scrapbook album (or journal) strictly about YOU! Each month I will post a new question for you to answer about your life. Some will be thought provoking, others will be fun and interesting. If you aren’t able to scrap it, then write it down in a journal. At the end of the year, I will have a gathering where those who made scrap pages from the questions can (if they want to) share their albums. It can be a 6”x6”, 9”x9”, 12”x 12” – doesn’t matter, whatever you want. The only rule is to please use CTMH paper and products for the majority of your entry pages. I will pick my favorite 5 entries, and then you will all vote on your favorite from those 5. The winner will get a special surprise (worth at least $30 ~ I haven’t figured out how special just yet!) 1 page ( or a two page layout) once a month ~ you can do it!

Questions #1 – Whether you have children now, or will (maybe) someday in the future, please answer this question:
If your children could only know one thing about you, what would want it to be?
(Besides knowing that you love them)
