Now, tally your answers.....

If you had mostly A's:
Your primary strength is Scrapbook Storyteller. You're most interested in sharing the story behind your photos and making sure your memories are chronicled and documented with words.
A challenge for you: Have fun with your journaling. Realize that not all stories need to be sad or serious to be heartwarming. Experiment with different ways of communicating information; use lists, dialogue, quotes from favorite books, hidden journaling and more.

If you had mostly B's:
Your primary strength is a Scrapbook Photographer. You've probably studied your camera manual, taken photography classes and studied photos for what works and what doesn't.

A challenge for you: Continue to develop your photography skills so your pictures tell as much of your scrapbook story as possible. Take photographs of every single person you know and see how many distinct personality traits you can capture.

**If you had mostly C's: (**this was me)
Your primary strength is a Scrapbook Stylist. You have an ability to pull together different elements and make them shine on a layout.

A challenge for you: Choose supplies you don't normally use and see what new combos you can create.

If you had mostly D's:
Your primary strength is Scrapbook Artist. You love playing with scrapbook styles, creating new looks, pushing the envelope and trying new techniques.

A challenge for you: Continue to push the envelope. Realize that you're scrapbooking for the joy of creating something unique. Come upwith a new technique you've never seen before.
Improve in other areas! Try a challenge from one of your weaker scrapbook styles.
Anyway, I hope you all had fun getting an idea of what your scrapbooking style is. I look forward to hearing your results.
Have a wonderfully blessed day! Be inspired...

Although I don't do much journaling on my LOs, I do keep separate journals. My challenge is to get the words on the page.
