At times I find it hard to find a starting point for my journaling… and the photo doesn’t always help to tell a particular story. So then what? So then what? How do you go about finding a place to start with your journaling? Perhaps try using a quote or phrase to trigger a story or help start your journaling. A good place to look for a quote would be in your digi-kits. Most of the time digital scrapbooking kits include a wide array of different word art. You can use the word art in your digi-kits to help kick start your story-telling. Also, if you need another resource to start, feel free to look here for an array of Journal Starter prompts here.
Moving on to to quote for today… Let’s take a look at “Moments Like This… Make Me Smile”
You could: 1) use this quote to help trigger a story on your page. OR 2) Use this quote on it’s own.
This Makes Me Smile
journaling: this is not a holiday, it is not an important event or specific date i had to record. it’s just an everyday ordinary moment. a regular moment between a father and a son. Looking at both of you makes me smile. it just does. it makes me fill up with happiness… someday i think this is what we should do here on this earth, to experience lots of moments like this. i love watching my husband being a teacher, and my son looking at his daddy with adoring eyes, soaking up information and learning. i LOVE moments like this.
As I used this prompt… I found so many different ways to use it and so many different stories.
I decided to turn a few of my own personal pages into word art to help you along with your storytelling.
