Do you struggle with your scrapbook journaling? Do you just add a title (maybe) and a date then move onto the next layout??
Do you write novels and go on and on with your journaling?
Weather your journaling style is minimalistic or you are the next Pulitzer Prize winner, an easy go to strategy for scrapbooking is using quotes. Hey even Pulitzer Prize writers get writer's block sometimes! And sometimes other people just hit the nail on the head – someone else said exactly what YOU were thinking but didn’t know how to put it into words. Often times I will use a quote as a jumping off point for my journaling and other times the quote stands alone.
My son has his favorite stuffed puppy toy. It has been his favorite as long as I can remember. He is almost 7 and he still sleeps with Puppy every night and when he is not feeling well Puppy is by his side. A few years ago I took a bunch of pictures of him cuddling with Puppy. And the only journaling on that scrapbook layout is a quote:
Happiness is a warm puppy. – Charles M Schulz
That was just the perfect quote. It captured the moment perfectly and no other journaling was needed.
With the passing of Steve Jobs this week, I’ve seen a lot of his quotes on Facebook and Twitter. People were truly inspired by Steve Jobs. And his quotes made people think of other inspirational quotes by others. Many of the quotes I’ve seen are perfect for scrapbooking and I plan on using some of them on scrapbook layouts for my kids. They are little pearls of wisdom that I want my children to hear and hopefully remember. I thought I would share the quotes with you. Maybe they will inspire you as well.
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected. -- Steve Jobs
Time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. -- Steve Jobs
The future depends on what you do today. - Mahatma Gandhi
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it. -- William Arthur Ward
