First, create an instruction sheet and send to friends/family along with a blank page and some "starter prompts" (e.g., "Lynne Defined;" "Lynne's Favorties at 40").
I then do a few "all about you" pages - and fill in any blank pages (the backs of those who only do one side, for example.)
For the cover, I made a MINI version of the invite (so loved the way the party invites turned out---thanks again to JOURNAL REVOLUTION Seesters Linda and Karen for the inspiration!)
So...here are some pages....
My hubby's pages (for his sister)--he wrote the note, picked the photos and chose the patterned paper layout (I did the putting together....great team effort! I will make a scrapper of him yet!):
A few more...don't want to post without the permission of the creators...all the pages were different and sweet and thoughtful and loving and funny....(my nephews wrote the sweetest things for their mom --not to mention her hubby!! he did a whole page where he wrote "I love you" in 21 languages!....I'll ask if I can post them before adding them here....) - Oh--and the envelopes are for those who sent in notes to be included in the book.
