No Journalling At All?

My Gallery layouts.
New goal to finish a page now and then, even with a new baby.

But I believe the most important thing is that the person/s and date can be identified at a later date. Provided this is covered it's very personal what you do.

I like to do a mixture of both. Sometimes I journal loads & loads and sometimes A quote or a nice title is all it needs. I've just picked up this years photoalbum (I save all my layouts up and get all 120 printed in one album - I love the drive to pick up and the hour in the car after.) and I'm glad I did journal some pages because one day my children will pick up one of my scrapbooks and know without a shadow of a doubt how much I love them. They will also be able to understand some of the stories behind the pictures and finally they will understand why I am so obscessed with my camera and scrapgirls.
I guess it's all about how you approach the layout.. Is it about the photo or the story and the moment.
For anyone who is self conscious of journalling I would truely urge you to try. I found it hard at first and started with the 5Ws When Where Who What and Why.... now a year down the line you can't shut me up and sometimes 12x12 just doesn't seem big enough!!!! <laughing>

Doing a story on a layout is not important to me at all. I prefer to let the layout tell the story. I very rarely journal and I am absolutely fine with it. I think scrappin s a personal choice and it is the person who is doing the layout to portray (sp?) it to be what ever they wish. I have a hard time with journaling unless I am forced to. I also prefer the layouts that do not have the frames flowers and embellishments. Iprefer the ones that are extracted and blended and showcase what I was trying to do with the layout. JMO
