GG,thank you for picking my question for this episode. I agonize so much over journaling,but you have provided some perspective and good ideas.
Beautiful page Shimelle! I am sure you were not a rude toddler...you were just being a normal toddler at that age! Such a cute page and subject to scrapbook about! I love the magic of Christmas, and it has stayed with me always!
I love how you scrapbook the imperfect photos and tell a great story with them. You inspire me to dig out old photos and get the stories in my books.
How great to come to 2Peas after all that cooking and get a Glitter Girl fix! Thanks for your points about journaling - I have to get better at picking out a paper that I can write on when choosing my supplies. Your l/o is beautiful - such wonderful colors. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Maria
Perfect timing! I am spending Christmas with my two daughters and their whole families. It has been 20 years since we have all been together. I know there will be lots of photos but it will be so very important to journal the emotions. I have become a much better recorder of our history since I started watching your videos. Thank You so much.

This week Glitter Girl does a lot of talking - all about writing on scrapbook pages, inspired by this discussion on the General Scrapbooking message board here at Two Peas. Her adventure takes her through a new layout from start to finish telling a Christmas story, with a variety of tips along the way.
If journaling is something you're really interested in improving, check out the Scrapbooking from the Soul workshop listed in the supplies below for a great resource on what to write, how to write it, and how to include it in your page designs.
There are also a few other Glitter Girl Adventures you might find helpful, such as Worldly Writing Worry.
Come along for the adventure, won't you?
This week Glitter Girl challenges you to upload your latest project - with journaling - and in the description box for your layout, tell us your tips for getting the story of your life into your albums, no matter your scrapbooking style. Don't forget to check the box for this challenge in step four of the uploading process.
