Layouts without Pictures

Let's face it. We have phone camera, purse cameras, hd video cameras and dSLRs, but we still don't get photos of all the moments we want to remember. I can't count how many times I've said "I wish I had my camera with me" or "I wish I had a better camera with me". What I should have done was come home and created a layout to capture my memories even without a photo. But did I do that? No. :O(  So, I know there are already great times lost to my memory. And that makes me sad.

And that brings me to the point of this post. Scrapping without photos. I've seen more and more layouts without photos and I'm glad. Just because we don't have photos does not mean the moment wasn't important. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but that doesn't mean we can't use a few words to convey the importance of a person or event for us.

That is exactly what I did in my layout "Besties". This is about one of my best friends in elementary school. I don't believe I have any photos of her or of us. But I still want to create a layout about our friendship, because it was such an important friendship when I was in the 1st and 2nd grade.

Here's my layout about Tracy using That's Me from Kiki Halbert Designs.

I love this kit that I used to create my layout. It's feminine without having too many pastels. And that is right up my alley. And because Kiki is currently Designer of The Month at Scrapbook Elements, you can pick up That's Me for 30% off.
