Book review

Scrapbook book review:

The Book Of Me

A guide to scrapping about yourself

by Angie Pedersen

Is someone missing from your scrapbooks? Do you find yourself constantly behind the camera and never in the picture? Do you have any proof that you were even actually on your last family vacation? The Book of Me by Angie Pedersen is a "how-to" book that encourages scrapbookers to seek out what makes them special and document it in their albums. Filled with great page ideas, the book breaks down the steps involved in making a scrapbook that celebrates the person who is creating the album.
Angie starts the book by listing several ways that scrapbookers can use the information that she presents. Everything from making one big book about your life to simply adding yourself to your family albums can be achieved with these simple, yet thought provoking ideas. Each chapter includes: Journaling Triggers, Photo Ideas, Memorabilia Ideas, and sample layouts. Beginning with her own childhood memories, Angie takes the reader through the stages of documenting her personal history. Each role that we play and each facet of who we are is covered in order to help the reader get the essence of who she is down on paper.
If scrapbooking about yourself has always seemed like an insurmountable challenge, then The Book of Me is a "must-have" in your scrapbook idea library.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. We are looking forward to Sunday. We are having family over and we look forward to enjoying our time with them.

Healthy and Happy,
