A picture is not always

worth a thousand words. And while a picture can convey some sense of what is transpiring, it cannot convey the thoughts, emotions or desires that are also manifest at the time the photo is made.

It is important, whether you scrap digitally or with paper, to make sure you put those thoughts down. As you age you are going to want to remember what happened and why. You also want to be able to leave something for future generations to know about you, your family and your life.

And as in the layout below, it is not always necessary to have a picture as part of the page. Sometimes it is more effective to devote the space to writing. Now as you progress in your scrapping remember to write it down.
