Journaling Tip #5: Delegate the Journaling

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you just don't know what to write on your layout?  Of course you have!  We all have - especially when we find ourselves scrapbooking the same types of events over and over.  For example, birthdays and holidays can be quite a challenge to write about. 

The next time you're at a loss for words, enlist your family and friends to help you journal.  Ask them to write down what they remember about the event:  What was the funniest thing that happened?  Were they surprised about anything?  What was the most memorable thing anyone said or did?  You can either let them use their own handwriting (attaching it right to the layout), or print it out.

There are a few benefits to this type of journaling.  Not only will it take some of the pressure off you to come up with something new and fresh to say, but it will also allow your friends and family to have a more prominent role in creating your scrapbooks and preserving your memories.

Happy scrapping!
