These lists of Book of Me prompts where especially written and provided by Angie Pedersen. Angie is well known in the digital scrapbooking world for her "Book of Me" books.
VIDEO review of Angie's books
You can follow Angie's Blog of Me to learn more about her. When I first started digital scrapbooking in May of 2005, Angie was running the Scrapbooking Industry News blog also. She was a great help to me as I became familiar with this great hobby.
Take a peek inside a few pages of one of Angie's books at Amazon.
BOM is an acronym for "Book of Me." Sometimes this challenge is also called "About Me." You can purchase all three of her books ("The Book of Me," "Growing up Me," and The Book of Us") on her site, as well as ekits and teaching materials.
Get inspiration from her Scrap Your Stories site.
Angie lives in Kansas City and I was privileged to meet her at the St. Louis Digi Gathering.
Most scrappers do not like to talk about themselves and often prefer to hide behind the camera (like me!). This causes us to leave out ourselves in our family albums. Years from now when our decedents review our scrapbooks, they will see everyone but the scrapper! I am sure they will wonder and wish you had scrapped about yourself.
This challenge may be difficult for some, but it is good to push ourselves to scrap about ourselves. Remember to sometimes turn the camera on yourself or allow someone else to take a photo of you. Learn how to journal your thoughts and really let "you" come through on the layouts.
I am confident that these challenges will not only help you to tell stories about yourself, but also to grow in understanding who you are.
Please complete set 1 before beginning set 2, and so on. You may jump around within each set as you do the challenges, but do not move onto the next set until you complete a set.
The challenges are in sets of 20. Once you complete each set, you will be awarded a special icon by your name. More importantly, your true reward will be your completed layouts.
Please introduce yourself in the credit thread.
This is where you can check your progress through the class. After you post in the thread, we will see it and then edit the first post in this thread to reflect that you have done the lesson next to your name.
This is also where we request that you ask questions about how the class works, help in finding things, or to notify us if there is an error in your credits (rather than by private e-mail, although we will answer you if you do send us an e-mail). In this way, all staff may know what is going on to help you more efficiently.
The credit thread can always be found from the main page of the forum. Just scroll down to the section on credits.
You can ask specific questions about tutorials in the thread where the video is hosted.
The links on the guide take you back to the forum where the video lesson or challenge is located and where you will post your lesson when you finish. Click on the "Set 1" link above to find the link to the first lesson.
After you complete your layout, upload it to the gallery, and then use the links underneath the layout to post it in the challenge thread.
I would suggest watching the help videos to familiarize yourself with Hummie's World. Especially watch the "Introduction to Classes" video.
The gallery help videos are also important to help you learn how to upload and how to post from the gallery to the forum.
It is helpful for us to get to know you better by name if you add something that we can call you into your signature line. This can be found in “settings.” You may also change both the "avatar" and the "profile" image from the settings.
Have fun and I look forward to watching you be inspired!
