This week started our second challenge for the BOM (Book of Me). If you are playing along with me, the theme is "Oh to be...." and you can fill in the blank with whatever appeals to you. It might be something you wish you could have done, somewhere you wish you could be, or a time period that you look back on with happiness. I chose to use a photo of myself at 3. I have such happy memories of my childhood and can remember when this photo was taken. My mom's friend had kept me for the day and totally played dress up with me, which I loved! Lots of old hats and pearls. You can click on the photo to read the journaling close up. What will you pick for your page? Please post a link to your blog so we can follow along with your BOM, too! Is there a time in your life you'd like to journal about for your children?

Heritage Layout of my Grandma

Here's the latest LO I've done for a wonderful scrapbook store I'm designing for. It's a photo of my grandma and her sisters. She's the cutey on the left. They were all born in East Texas. I love this photo. It's the only one I have of her as a little girl. Her name was Onie. I put a hidden journaling tag to the right of the photo. My grandma and her sisters stayed close their entire life, choosing to live as close as they could to one another, calling each other on the phone almost daily for decades. They all lived into their late 80's or 90's. I think about them so often. They were true Southern Belles. This paper line is by Best Creation, Inc. and it's super glittery. I used Glimmer Mist on the flowers and the background paper in the center. The butterflies are from Creative Imaginations. I love them. What do you think?:
