Tips for Journaling!

Hi Everyone!  It's Jenn (jk703) again, lol!  I am here today to bring you some tips about Journaling.  Journaling is a very important aspect to our digital creations.  It tell the story, the background, and personal feelings in your pages!

Do you journal a little, a lot, or none at all?  I tend to let each layout determine what type of journaling I am going to include.  At the very minimum, I include the date and try to make a note of the people in the photos.  Do you get stuck, and wonder what to add?  Journaling prompts are a great way to add to your layouts and get you started telling more on your pages.

So... to get you to journal on your pages, I thought I'd share some questions that you could answer and create pages for.  These questions can be asked of people, or you could start an All About Me project and answer them yourself!  Here ya go:

1.  What is your favorite memory from your childhood?

2.  Who was your best childhood friend?  Where are they now?

3.  Where did you grow up?  Type of house?  City/farm, etc? 

4.  What were your teen years like?

5.  What sports did you play? or instrument?

6.  What did you think you would be when you grew up?  

7.  What were your favorite things as a teenager?  Movies, music, food, etc?

8.  Did you go to college or straight to work?  Why?

9.  How did you meet your significant other? 

10.  What are your favorite colors and why?

11.  What was your first car?  What car do you have now, and why did you choose it?

12.  Do you have any nicknames, and where did you get them?

13.  What makes you happy?  Sad?  Cry?  Angry?

14.  What good choices and bad choices have you made?

15.  What is your favorite time of the day?  Why?

16.  Where will you be in 10 years?

17.  What do you like to do in your spare time?  Hobbies? TV?

18.  What do you most like about yourself?  Dislike?

19.  Do you have any quirky or hidden talents?

20.  What are your favorite musical artists?  How did they change throughout the years?

21.  Can you cook?  Why or Why not?  Who taught you?

22.  What is in your purse right now?

23.  What is on your ipod?  applications, photos, games, movies, books?

24.  What is your favorite book? author?

25.  What is your favorite Holiday?

I hope some of these questions will get you to create pages about you and those around you!  We'd love to hear your questions/prompts that you use as well as those awesome layouts you create!  Link us up!

Have a great weekend everyone!
