Today I wanted to share a quick layout.
Thanks to many fabulous pages by Karen Grunburg, there’s been a big trend lately towards creating layouts with longer titles. While it usually takes me a long time to embrace a new trend, I have to admit that I’m really drawn to this idea.
I frequently scrapbook photos of my nephews that my brother or sister-in-law took. (Disclaimer – they have given me full permission to use their photos, scrapbook them and display them here.) Often, I don’t know when the photo was taken, where they were, what they were doing or what was happening. What I do know, is that my nephews are awesome and I’m going to scrapbook the photos even when I don’t have any details.
Enter the long title.
If the title has enough detail to express what I’m feeling about the photo, I don’t pressure myself to add any journaling. After all, I don’t know the details.
I know that my particular circumstances might not apply to everyone, but the best application I can think of where you could apply this idea is for heritage photos and older photos.
I have some awesome photos of my parents before they had kids. I could ask my Mom all the details, (not that she’ll remember them from 40 years ago…) but I think it would be more fun to add a fun long title about how in 5 years they will have two kids under three so they better party now! That’s on my list of layouts to get to…someday…
Have you created any pages with a long title?
Thanks for stopping by today!
