Poems and quotes are a great way to get your feelings down on the page. Sometimes someone else can say it better than you...so let them. Anytime I am stumped for words, I look to these for help.
Here is an example of a page using a poem:
This is a page I made for a friend. I left a blank space for her to add her own words, but if she chose to add an embellishment to the white box instead, she would still have words to go with her page that match her feelings.
And here is a page I made using a quote as my journaling:
The quote reads "Enjoy the little things for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." This is a picture of my mom, grandma, and myself out to lunch. Not a big deal, but this is a picture I will cherish forever. I could not have put better words to this photo than the quote does :)
