Today's blog prompt on 2 Ps is about journaling.

I have scrapbooked since high school but when I really got into the hobby was after going to a couple of Creative Memories demos. In these demos I was taught that scrapbooking was really about the story that your photos tell. The CM philosophy was photos first, then journaling, then add embelishments as a final layer.

I eventually broke away from the CM way of thinking. While the photos and journaling were still important to me, the overall design of a page is what brings me the most joy. I used to mandate that there be journaling on every page. Sometimes, the journaling didn't have much substance. Now often the only journaling on my page is my title and I am ok with that because sometimes that is all I need.
