There are some great resources online to help you tell your story. You can find tons of journaling prompts, and digidares that will help you tell stories in a creative manner, or blogs about telling your story like Baby Love Letters. If you want to get OFF the computer and handwrite some of your story before you scrap it, you can also find books of all sizes about writing your memoirs. Check out these books: Your Words, Your Story or That's Life, Finding Your Scrapbook Inspiration in the Everyday. Another great way to find inspiration is to find weekly challenges. Here are two excellent challenge sites that will inspire you to tell your story, My Story Matters and The Book of Me Challenge.
I try to tell the story of my family in my scrapbooks, but I do have difficulty telling about myself. Lately, I have been inspired to do this more from visiting with my Grandmother, who lost her Mother at the age of six. If something were to happen to me, I would want my children to have something to remember me by, rather than making them rely on their young memories. So, I was thrilled when I found StoryRock's Chic to Chic template kit, which is perfect for helping me tell my story. Here are a few pages from my book of me. I just changed the backgrounds on the templates provided to match my color scheme and just filled in the journaling!
Can you think of someone who might like to have a book about YOU? Consider grabbing Chic to Chic this week and whipping one up for them! You may also consider creating one of these special books about someone else. Helping them tell their story with your wonderful touch can be a wonderful gift - for them and for you!
Happy Scrapping! Sarah
