    I am one of those scrappers that loves creating my pages with elements and papers, great shadows etc. Journaling is THE last thing on my mind when I am creating a page...that is sad to me, because I really am trying to capture the moments of the photos and memories.
    One thing I do know, is that a journaling prompt really helps get the creative words rolling in my head (which is why I am usually so hesitant to journal- I can't find the 'right' words).

    This first VP Challenge for January and for the new year is to JOURNAL!!
    There MUST be at least 5 lines of real journaling- not just a couple of words, but something like you would write in a journal or diary kind of journaling.

    Here are some journaling prompts for you, if you need some help! I really cannot wait to see your pages!

    *What are you most looking forward to in 2018
    *Describe your day/week/month
    *Where have you traveled?
    *What inspires you to scrap
    *Favorite part of your day/night
    *Something you learned in 2017
    *Guilty pleasure
    *Watching (movie, tv series, etc)
    *Scrap an accomplishment- no matter how big or small
    *Where would you like to travel to?
    *Something that happened that changed you
    *Something you want to try
    *Words that make you think and why
    *Reading- favorite or looking forward to
    *Music- what moves you or gets you moving
    *Useless knowledge- something quirky you know

    Here is one from me, without photos:

    Here is another:

    Also, here are the usual requirements for the PDW Challenges and collecting those awesome wrappers!!:
    1. To receive points you must use at least 1 item from a Plain Digital Wrapper Designer- You can use retired PDW products, freebies, and store collabs, BUT the designers have to be still active (except in the case of collabs).
    2. Be a new layout created for this challenge.
    3. Be only entered in 1 challenge category.
    4. Upload your layout to the Variety Pack Challenge Gallery and post the link and photo in this thread.
    5. Your page must be posted by the last day of the month in order to receive points.
    You will receive one Wrapper for completing the challenge and a Bonus Wrapper for using ALL PDW products if you keep track in the It's a Wrap Thread!!
    Those add up quickly and at 20 points will get you a $5 gift certificate to the PDW store!

    1.jpg Wow! A PERFECT example. Great challenge...I, too, find it difficult to journal and I need to do more.

    My page- about my 2 special people enjoying some quality time while Tracey is still in reasonable health. My wish for 2018 is that Tracey continues to defy her cancer prognosis and can enjoy special times like this with the important people in her life.

    Journaling and stories are usually a big part of my pages. Sometimes more so than the photos when I capture something funny the kids have done or said, and for which there is no photo.
