One thing I want to tell you that I'm absolutely one of the most obsessive compulsive and most indecisive person you'll probably ever meet. I can't for the life of me make a decision or come to an agreement without major analysis!!!
As you can see, especially from journaling you'll read too... I have flipped over and over in my head the many ways I want to record and document your life! Everyday I change my mind or find a new thing I want to do. I stretch out how long I want to do certain things, how I want to put certain things together, and how I want to do it! After I analyze everything in my list... I'll highlight and bold my decision.
These are my choices I need to make:
(verb): The creative art of digitally creating an image, adding photos, memorabilia, journaling, and embellishments. The primary purpose of scrapbooking is to preserve memories for future generations, but a secondary purpose often is to exercise your creativity as you display your memories in a scrapbook.
(verb): The creative art of taking books with blank pages and adding photos, memorabilia, journaling, and embellishments. The primary purpose of scrapbooking is to preserve memories for future generations, but a secondary purpose often is to exercise your creativity as you display your memories in a scrapbook.

Pros- add many additional found items.

separate printing for journaling and photos.
Storytelling jounaling vs.regular journaling
this is one of the harder decisions for me to make and I think it will go largely based on how I scrapbook. Right now I do a mix of both. I do some storytelling on here, and I do both in my notebook. I do like to do lists and outlines... then I like to tell a story. Its my biggest problem! I think if I do the hardback book digitally I'll do it in story format, if I do the life album I'll do regular journaling.
black and white photos vs. colored photos
again I think these will match up according to how I decide to scrap, and white products I decide to use. Honestly I lean really heavy to black and white simple because I love the cohesiveness to them. If I tell a story in the book, most likely we are looking at b/w photos. If I do the life album, I'll do color!
timeframed vs. collective
again heavy on my decisions with the rest of the project!! collective would be nice with a bounded story book with a collection of photos that show you. Timeframed would be nice if I'm doing regular journaling with notes, prompts, calenders, and photos.
can I honestly say.... I WANT TO DO BOTH!!
lol I say I'll do the
Digital hardback collective book with black and white photos that flow in a story journaling format.
Daily Album Timeline book with colored photos that flow in a regular journaling format.
hey I told you I was sometimes indecisive... so much so that I often do both things
