OK. I'll admit it. I usually save my journaling for last. Not because I don't think it's important, but because sometimes I think I know what I'm going to say before I start; but then, once the photos are on the page, I think of more to say. There are times, though, when I write my journaling before putting the photos on. In the layout below, I just started writing about what I remember from my summers as a child. I knew the photos I was using, but I put them on after I finished writing. In this case, writing the journaling first worked better for my layout, and it shared center stage with the photos. Give it a try.
