Journaling and Layouts struggle!

I'm so frustrated with myself!
I pretty good at picking out what I want to include on my page, but it SO hard for me to commit to a layout :roll: keep changing my mind.. :roll:
and I have SUCH an tough time with journaling...Am I overthinking things?

Aw, I have a tough time too. Journaling makes it harder. I wish I had some advice.

journaling gets me all the time. Now I just describe the picture like I would to someone sitting beside me or like I am talking to the person in the picture.

Thanks goodness for digi scrapbooking... you can change your mind a zillion times and not waste any supplies etc...

That is a really good idea. I have such a hard time journaling too. Most of the time I don't even have any on my page. But I am definitely going to try this.

Journaling and layouts are definately a trivia.

Have you tried sketching out your lo's. So you can develop a picture of what you want and try it different ways. I'm trying to do the digiscrapping but I just started yesterday and right now i can just tell you i'm fustrated.

Journalling -- I also describe the picture or the moment (if I remember, what was going on). Then there are just some that don't need any explanations and I place a poem or a title.

But it is definately easy to get fustrated with scrapping but that's what is so great about it too, you can create that perfect piece of artwork.
