02/02/18 - "Book of Me" -AKA- Another New Project

It's not Thursday, but I'm going to Throw It Back for a moment.
Back to my first layout of 2018
Created on January 1st, 2018!
Dimensions = 5x8
 
"Congrats to Me - 2017 Reading Challenge"
Journaling:
"Surpassed my 2017 Reading goal of 12 books by 10!
12.31.17"
 
This documents me completing my 2017 Reading Challenge!
This is also my first layout/page in my "Book of Me" Journal.
 
I was gifted a Jot Journal from a friend as part of a Christmas Gift.
I've never heard of a Jot Journal before but it is similar to a Travelers Notebook/Midori Travelers Notebook.
This particular journal has pages that are approximately 5x8.
I decided to turn this journal into a "Book of Me"
I plan on just scrapping random photos/stories about me...not necessarily in chronological order.
 
 
Here are 2 more layouts I've created:


 "NOPE"
Journaling:
"In case your wondering...
Nope, "Not Today"...or any other day actually.
My new T-Shirt from Hot Topic.
You put a cat and/or a sarcastic saying on it and I'll buy it, LOL"
- July 30th 2017
 


"Cat Backpack"
Journaling:
"Bought this cute backpack. TBH, I did have a, "I'm 41 yrs old I shouldn't be carrying a cat backpack" moment but my daughter convinced me that if I like it, I should buy it. So buy it I did! Bonus: It has ears!"

Cat washi tape is from Target - I just HAD to have it!


 
 
Here's a photo of both pages together so you can get a better idea of the size of the book/project.
 

 
So far I am having lots of fun w/ this and it's a great way to use up the "1-photo" photos I take of myself and/or things/events that tell pieces of MY story. I also love it because it's an easy way to use up scraps and the smaller size page allows for faster scrapping while still allowing room for creativity!
 
I already have another layout in mind...
If only I was home to scrap it...
Soon, and when I do, I'll definitely be sharing!
