Tell us a story. A long story.

Hello, Liz Jutila (lizj) here with this week's journaling challenge. Often people cringe at the idea of telling a long story on a page. But, I think if you ask your loved ones which of your pages are the ones they linger over, it's the ones that tell the story behind the scene. It's the page that reminds them of what they were doing, and why. It's the page that tells them how you feel about them. It's the page that speaks to them.

There are a lot of ways to effectively tell a story. In my sample, I just sat down and thought about how I felt about our rescue dog, and how she must feel too. It just came pouring out. Stream of consciousness journaling is easiest if you don't stop to edit while you're writing. You can always go back and edit. Or, as in my sample, go back and break up long journaling by highlighting certain special words in a different color or type of font. Song lyrics, conversations, interviews, and he said/she said styles are also good ways to tell a long story. Lists or bullet points can help break up long journaling into more readable sections.

My challenge to you is to tell us a good, long story. I will leave it to you to define "long." I won't be doing a word count! Go ahead and pick a style that helps you convey the point of your page.  It doesn't have to be in your own words. But you must tell us the story. I promise I will read every word. And I bet your families will too. 

Be sure to click on the digital journaling challenge button when loading your lo's, and remember, you have a chance to win the much-coveted $5 gift certificate to the 2Peas store, just by entering the challenge.  I can't wait to read what you all have to tell us about your pages!

I'll make you a deal. If you use "some" digital elements on your lo, but some is hybrid, you're in! But, since it's a digital challenge, it seems only fair to the all-digi scrappers to have "some" digital elements. Fair? (You do realize that printed journaling cards would be a digital element, right? ;} ).
