I have found that the best and most interesting journaling on a layout are words from yourself. I also have an appreciation for using poems and quotes. Whether written by you or by someone else, these pieces of the layout are as important as the photos and accents.

Grab a notebook to keep all of your thoughts and ideas in. This will serve as an excellent reference guide for you to go back to. Jot down quotes and sayings as you hear them to be used later. Use poems written by yourself or family members to add a unique personal touch.

One thing many people over-look are the messages that are given within television shows and movies. Keep a note of your favorite lines as they too will become useful.
