I had a great time looking at all projects the very talented DT had done for the Crawl yesterday! I feel very inspired! I am now looking forward to going through everyone that joins in now.
Here is a LO I did for the Lasting Memories Journaling challenge. I do struggle with journalling, I (like most people I think) really don't like my own writing, and I often find it hard to sum up in words what photos mean to me, especially if I scrapbooking a picture that I have just chosen because I think it's cute! I never type up journalling either. But as this was a challenge, I thought I would challenge myself to try journalling I had printed-
I cut out a flower from a sheet of patterned paper and stuck a little button in the middle.
The paper and the letter stickers are Basic Grey, the scalloped card is Papermania. The rest of the bits were just bits and pieces I had.
My verdict on typed journaling-I like the finished result, but it was a bit of a hassle. When I am doing a LO, I just grab the bits I want to include, ribbon I like, buttons I think will work, and then see where it all takes me. I never really have a plan. So when I typed up the journaling, I had it in a few different shapes and sizes, because I didn't know where it was going to be. I suppose I could have done it at the end. And as much as I hate my own handwriting, I hope that in years to come it will be a link to me for my children and grandchildren. So I think I will defiantly do more journaling on the computer, but I don't think it will be very often!
