challenge: give yourself a present

The present. What’s going on right now in your life. I challenge you to record it to remember it.
You have everything you need right now to be vibrant and fully engaged in the creative process. Join me and dozens of other scrapbookers in a challenge to “Give Yourself a Present.”
  • Snap ten photos of your life right now.
  • Compile these photos in a small mini-album.
  • Keep or carry this album with you (in your desk drawer or purse) for one year.
  • Promise to glance through the album every time you stumble upon it or pull it from your purse.
  • On October 1st, 2009, create a scrapbook page about your experience. (don’t worry, I’ll blog and help you remember!).
My mini-album:

I used a 3x3 mini album from We R Memory Keepers to create my mini book. I printed the photos out to 2.5" x 2.5" then matted them on 3" x 3" papers, added a note on the back of each, then slipped them into the included page protectors. For the cover, I used Heidi Grace paper and stickers and my Threading Water Border Punch.

There are lots of other scrapbookers participating in this challenge too, you can check the list out on Stacy J's blog.

I hope you join in and create your present today!

Thanks for posting that link, Gretchen. I've looked all over Houston for the little Bazzill Albums. Just ordered two of the WeR albums for a friend and I to do the project! :) Hope all is well with you!
