Book of Me

On August 1, Cocoa Daisy started with an initiative to create a “Book of Me”.
Every day in August there will be a post (“Daily Prompt”) on the
message board which can be used as a page in a Book of Me Album.
At the end of the 31 days, you’ll have 31 pages about yourself to compile.

Since I have an account there, I’d thought I would join in –
I decided to do a 6×6 album, and cut all the cardboard in advance.

There has been two prompts so far (August 1 and 2) and I like them both!!!
(if there’s a prompt you don’t like, you just skip that one)
If you wanna join in – it’s not to late! Hop on over and play along!

I have already finished two pages…
wanna see?

I found the box filled with my old high school diaries in the attic.

I spend hours reading in it,
my son laughed over the slogans I wrote in it and
both my loved ones tried to recognize the numerous 
“seventies pop heroes” on the pictures…
(I used to have “de POP agenda” – the “POP diary”)

We sure had fun!

And then I started creating!
