Journaling In 1St Or 3Rd Person?
Posted 11 June 2011 - 11:04 PM
I'm just starting to scrap and am starting with pages for my children/of my children....I feel like I should write it as if I'm talking to them (ie. today you said this, I love to see you do this, Your eyes sparkle when you start to...etc)
or should I write it in third person (ie. Benji was so excited about his win, Isaac is a nonstop talker...)
Does it depend on the page? Can it switch from one to the other in the same book? Journaling is a challenge for me anyway, maybe I'm making this harder than it is....what do YOU do? what are your thoughts?

The kids love it when I do their pages in 1st person, but since most of the pages I scrap are basically my memories of a particular photo and what they were doing then they are in 3rd person. I think it's fun to have both ways in an album.

But, I can see where if scrapping a book to your children you might want to use "you".
Then again - like everyone else, I think it's fine to use both in a book.
