Make a resolution this January to scrapbook the things you want to accomplish as a family this year. To get your family thinking about the goals they’d like to set and the things they’d like to accomplish, enlist their help with the journaling on your next layout.
When thinking about involving the whole family in your journaling, consider
- Asking each member of the family to write in a specific spot on your layout or giving them each his or her own journaling spot, like Joannie McBride did on her layout, A Better Us in 2011.
- Having a family meeting to discuss your goals. Appoint a note taker, and use the notes later for the journaling on your scrapbook page.
- Creating individual pockets on your layout for each family member to house his or her own goals check list. This way, the goals are recorded, but also kept private.
- Creating a special embellishment to house journaling, as Cindy Tobey did with the math book on her layout, Math Geek. Cindy added her own journaling at the bottom of the layout and had her daughter write inside the book. What fun embellishment can you add to your next scrapbook page to house your family’s journaling?
