Life Book - Holiday Break

Monday was our last chat for 2010! We have now completed the first 10 weeks of our Life Book at Heritage Scrap and we'll pick up with Week 11 in January. Our topic will be Young Adult, so if you see relatives over the holidays that may have photos of your subject that you don't have, make sure to snag a scan!! :)

I would like to take this time to thank you all for your support and for coming to the chats, buying my products and walking with me on this amazing journey in creating heirlooms! I am so blessed!

Have a Merry Christmas, make memories with your friends and family and Have Fun! Looking forward to a wonderful New Year in 2011!! God Bless us one and all! :D

Life Book Week 10: Friends

“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.”

Welcome to Week 10 of the Life Book Challenge where we will be preserving memories of FRIENDSHIP.

This week, your assignment is to scrap about your subject's friend(s). This could be childhood friends, life long friends, sisters/brother/cousins as friends (imaginary friends if you wish ;)) ... A friend is something that everyone has, and hopefully you are fortunate enough to have a picture of your subject with a friend. (It doesn't even have to be a human friend. Sometimes a dog is man's best friend. ;))

This is probably a good time to say that you may need to shuffle your pages when you are finished to put them in chronological order. Some of us will be doing childhood friends, while others are doing a layout about a friend later in life. Obviously, you will want to put this page wherever it fits chronologically in your book.

Here is a page Helene did about her life long friend, Marilyn. In this layout, she documents their friendship from their school years through the present.


This page I made for Millie's Life Book tells some stories about her two best friends. I didn't have any pictures of them, but I did include a picture of Millie when she was little with her sisters.


When your Layouts are done, please post them in the Life Book Gallery for Week #10: Friends.

Please try to come back here and post a link to your layout when it's in the gallery so we don't miss it.
If you need directions for posting links, please see my tutorial in the forum.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything about this Section of your Life Book, please post here in this thread.

Thanks! Can't wait to see the gallery this week!
