Scrapping without photos
Scrapping without photos - not sure about this, what is the point? That's what I thought when I first came across the idea a few years ago, but the more I think about this I do think that scrapping without photos is ok - who says it's not? Since then I have been jotting things down stories I want to record, random thoughts etc. and then just typing them, adding a few embellishments and I'm good to go.
I think of all those stories that I have in my memory from when I was younger, holidays, relationships, details of when I went to school etc. and that I haven't got photos of but would like to share and so I pull out my computer and get typing and do you know what - I love them! I love the fact that the story is recorded for my children. Here is one story that I wanted to scrap which happened in April.
I used Bazzill cardstock, Scenic Route paper and the digital element from Ali Edwards.
Here is another one that I did last year - paper by Blonde Moments and again a element by Ali Edwards.
These kinds of layouts come together very quickly as I don't think about matching colour to the photo and what kind of embellishment would be suitable. I just add a little bit of paper and that's it.
Let me know what you think.
