Lasting Memories Journaling Challenge

I you are looking for the Fantabulous Cricut Crawl and giveaway click here

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!

Thank you for visiting.


  1. What a lovely layout. Love all the tiny details that make this so girly and frilly. Love how you did the journaling! Your daughter is adorable!

  2. This is beautiful and I love all the little added elements. So pretty. I'm the same with my journaling. I want to do it in my own hand as it's something my children and their children (one day) will always have, but then sometimes you just don't think your handwriting will work in with your LO. But it's important for sure! I think your pc journaling looks awesome. Thanks for joining us at Lasting Memories and good luck!

  3. Gorgeous LO! I use my WORD program for most of my journaling.I hate journaling but this makes it much easier. Journaling is so important! You did do an awesome job on your journaling, Thanks for joining us at Lasting Memories.
