The point of scrapbook journaling is to help preserve memories. But what if one of the photos happens to fall out of an album? Brief journaling directly onto the back of your photos ensures that even if a photo comes out of the album, it can still be identified. Make sure you include the basic, who, what and when. Never write on the back of your photos with a ball point pen. It can seep through to the front of the photo and will probably emboss it as well. Instead, choose a very soft acid free pencil or an acid free, fast drying, felt tip pen.
