Journaling Solutions: July/August 2011

by Lori Fairbanks

It's time to scrapbook summertime as the world around us buzzes with unique sounds-birds chirp and tweet in the trees; ice plops into fizzy drinks while steaks sizzle on the grill; children zoom out the backdoor, letting the screen slam behind them with a clank. As you're scrapbooking your July and August memories, think of the sounds you heard. Let our journaling tips and quotes help get you started.
