Hi, I’m Lynnette Penacho-Jackman. Tech-lovin’ memory keeper and hard-core advocate for telling your personal story.
In 2009 I reached a point with my scrapbooking where I was ready for something new. A new challenge. A new idea. I loved the layouts I’d created but I felt like my albums lacked a cohesive story and at times, they didn’t feel like me.
The rules were simple:
- My list had to include exactly ten items – no more, no less.
- Journaling had to be in list form but numbers were optional.
- The layout title had to include the month followed by the word FAVES.
- Each layout had to include a NEW self-portrait taken during that specific month.
As someone who tended to stress about every word of journaling she wrote like she was being graded on an English essay, a top ten list of my favorite things was the easiest journaling I’d ever done.
I repeated the project in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017, each time following the same rules but pushing myself to think outside of my own box with the design.
hands-down some of my most favorite layouts ever.
They added exactly what my scrapbooking albums needed: consistency, a snapshot of my life and a healthy dose of creative design.
telling your personal story doesn’t have to be hard.
scrapbooking yourself feels FUN, Creative, & Easy.
On the 28th of every month you’ll receive an all-new Monthly Faves-themed 12×12-inch digital scrapbooking template, inspiration and support designed for you to capture your top ten favorite things from that month.
Simply add your own photo, text and digital goodies and by the end of 2018, you’ll have twelve completed Faves layouts of your very own!
- Because a top ten list is one of the easiest forms of journaling you can do. For real.
- Because a list of your personal faves will say more about you than a travel/event/birthday layout ever will.
- Because you don’t remember nearly as much stuff as you think you will. Seriously, I look back at the layouts and am constantly reminded in an “oh YEAH!” kind of way.
- Because scrapbooking with friends is always more fun.
- Because it’s an awesome way to make sure YOU are featured in your scrapbooks too.
This is my 2nd year of The Faves Project. I completed all 12 layouts in 2015, and it was exactly what I needed to jump-start my creativity after a long dry spell.

I love the Faves memory-keeping concept that you have introduced into my life and have been keeping a Faves list every month for the past two years. It’s amazing what a rich document in turns out to be, in terms of all the memories that list will conjure up years later, of life moments both big and small.
