Step into S-P-R-I-N-G Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to my blog! Today we are celebrating the beginning of a new season with the Step into Spring Blog Hop brought to you by the Design Team from Memorable Seasons! If you did not start your hop today on the Memorable Seasons blog, please jump back over there so you do not miss anything. Today we are looking at the word S-P-R-I-N-G and taking you through all the steps for creating a fabulous layout using an exclusive sketch created for this blog hop by Liz Chidester , which was the first step! You have already hopped through the letters S, P, R, I, N, and now you are here for the letter G.

Today, G stands for "Give that layout a title and some journaling!" Here's my layout up to this point.
Now, I am a stickler for having a title of some sort and some journaling on every layout I complete. The only ones that I do without titles are the ones that the photos speak for themselves so clearly that no title is needed. And if I don't at least tell the date and some basic information, then the journaling isn't complete. I usually wait until the end to do both my title and journaling. I like to think about what I'm going to say as I'm doing all the other steps. This gives me time to think about the photo and what was happening. Sometimes, the title comes so easily and other times I have to really ponder. Same with journaling. If you ever have trouble giving your layout a title and journaling, I advise you to leave a place for it so that you can come back and add it when you have had time to let your mind clear.

Now to see my layout with my title and journaling added, you will have to head over to Memorable Seasons to check out the Blog Hop post! There you will see a complete reveal of all of the Design Team's finished layouts!

Be sure to leave me a comment telling me what you think about titles and journaling. By doing so, you will be one step closer to a fabulous Memorable Seasons prize as well as getting your name entered in a RAK from me!

Thanks for joining in on our first ever Blog Hop at Memorable Seasons! We hope you have enjoyed your time doing this!
