I know that I should journal more on my pages and I know that I should include myself more. I never know what to write about myself though. Enter the journal prompt. For today’s challenge, go over to the Creativity Portal and grab a prompt. Then create a page around the prompt. You don’t have to use the prompt on your page as a title or even in the journaling. You could use the prompt to inspire something different. For instance, one of the prompts is about selecting a Christmas tree as a child. This could inspire you to scrap a childhood holiday memory or perhaps a layout about your current Christmas tree traditions. You don’t have to journal about yourself either – the prompt might just as well apply to someone else!
I chose the prompt, “Can you accept yourself as you are?” I had my son take a few photos of me (double chin and all!) and selected a photo. Then I added some journaling about how I have to do a better job with this! This kit from Jenn Barrette over at Sweet Shoppe Designs was perfect for this prompt.
The Collective took on this challenge as well.
Jody Wenke chose the prompt, "Did you have a favorite pet as a child? Did it have a name? What memories are connected to it? " How adorable is that photo of little Jody with her kitty, Stomper? Jody always does a phenomenal job adding interest to her titles. I love how she added the little mouse below the M in Stomper and how she used three different fonts for her title.
Amy Sorenson chose the prompt, "To me, the sound of childhood is... She has had this photo of her son, Jake, on the swing set hanging on her scrap room cork board for years now. When she read the prompt, she immediately heard the squeak of swings. She said, "---maybe because most swinging happens in the summer, and summer is definitely a childhood staple, but that image was so strong I knew it was the one!"
Remember to upload your pages in the Flickr gallery. I’ll be heading in there this evening and grabbing a few to highlight tomorrow! Until then!
