Scrapbook YOU! Day 14 {The Teen Years}

Today we are scrapbooking your hopes and dreams from your youth.


  • What did you want to be when you grew up?
  • How did you envision your future?
  • What were your hopes, goals and dreams?
  • What did you dream your life would be like?
  • Where did you want to live?
  • What were your plans after school?
  • What are you proud of? What did you accomplish?
  • Who supported these dreams?
  • What characteristics did you admire and strive to achieve?


Any photos of yourself as a teen will work. If you have photos of yourself receiving an award or involved in an activity that is similar to the goal mentioned that would be perfect!


In the sample layout I scanned and printed a yearbook photo (the black and white photo in the middle).

A different approach!
This example layout takes a different direction. Instead of talking about what I wanted to be, it speaks about the qualities and characteristics I admire.

Symbolism: Consider using the symbolism related to dreams on your page. Clouds and stars are often used to symbolize dreams. You can also try balloons, ladders and keys.

Try a fun journaling technique on your page.

  • Highlight important words in your journaling.
  • Print journaling on strips.
  • Use descriptive words to make the journaling more colourful.

Add a motivational quote. Here’s a few to get you started:

  • Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway. -Earl Nightingale
  • Dreams don’t work unless you do.
  • If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.
  • Set your goals high, and don’t stop until you get there. – Bo Jackson
  • There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind. – C.S. Lewis
  • The most important thing about goals is… having one.
