Telling stories, exploring thoughts and preserving memories is the heart of scrapbooking. Sometimes a photo can simply be a complementary accessory to a beautiful layout. To focus on the writing, it is often helpful to have a prompt. Journaling prompts are a lot like challenges – they get your mental juices flowing and help stretch your creativity. There are many Web sites to help you along and these are some of the best!

A great template with built-in room for journaling is yet another way to work your writing magic. Meet Template Annika!
