There's something special about scrapbooking, as opposed to simply placing photos in an album. We can tell a story, capture a moment, portray a personality, and remember those special things. We can even do it without photos.
One way I love to add personality and life to a scrapbooking layout is to include quotes. Not quotes from famous people, but quotes of the words spoken by the people I love. Mostly they are words spoken by my children, memories I don't want to forget.
My challenge to you today is to scrap a layout including words spoken by someone you know. If you are scrapbooking a memorial then including some of the things that person said to you can make your memorial pages so much more meaningful, not just for you but for those who meet that person through your layouts.
Here are some of my favourites from my children's scrapbooks.
|A fun conversation with my preschooler about why she thought the leaves turned colour. I used different colours and writing styles for mine and my daughter's words.|
|The words my son used to shout when we were doing photo shoots.|
|My daughter not co-operating with daddy's photo shoot. His words and her responce as he took the photo are written at the bottom of the page.|
|My husband quoted my daughter after trying to teach her to ride a bike. I just had to capture those words as they spoke out her dream of what she wants to be.|
|It's child's play and the photos were taken to go with the quote I wanted to scrap.|
