Yesterday I said I had one more layout to share. I felt like this layout was too important to lump in with all the others I had created over the course of the week. Not because of who is in the photos, or which designers I used, but because of the purpose for sharing the layout. The purpose for even creating the thing (a purpose that goes deeper than "because I was at a speed scrap").
Where's the Story? using "Watch Me Shine" by Litabells Designs:
I've noticed over the last few months that the number of layouts I've created with only photos, or very little journaling has increased, while the numbers of layouts that tell a story have decreased. Friday night, while searching for photos to use in a speed scrap, I decided it was time to tackle a subject I'd been mulling around for a while. So rather than choosing three photos, as the instructions stated, I chose three layouts. Two very recent ones (that I love) and one older one (that I also love). The difference in the older vs. newer is that the newer only contained photos and word art. And maybe a date/location tag. But no meaningful story. No why these photos are important. No method to my madness. So with this layout, I vowed to tell the story more often. Beginning with this layout, I will tell the story more often. Because that is why I scrap.
