Need to pour a footer

I am wanting to build a column and knee high wall and do real stack stone veneer over concrete blocks. What is the best way to pour a footer? I am in GA so there is no frost line. I guess I am planning on digging them out, but do I need to frame it out in the ground as to make sure the pour is level? I guess I am just going to use bags of quickcrete for the pour.

apron store has a book - get the rebar there, too,,, you may wish to reconsider bagg'd mix when you do the math - ea bag yields .67cf as i recall,,, a 10'x1'x6" fnd'll require 8bags.
