Ive just got off the blower to one of my scrappy freinds (waves to Jo). And we were talking about the fact that she is cheesed off with the huge old debate about the rights and wrongs of scrapbooking.
I don't think I ever saw the law manual about how you should scrap but I'm getting a little bit perplexed at the fact that some people scream that YOU HAVE TO scrap with more than one photo.
I scrap both single and multi (in the past I just scrapped with one photo because really, that's all I had) but Im really rooting for the one photo layout girl of today! I mean, what if you went somewhere and took only one photo or you only have one photo of your momma at an event from years gone by? When I was younger, my mum would only take one shot here and one shot there because it was so expensive to develop photos in the early 80's. So come the scrapping of the event - are you not allowed to scrap that page just in case it upsets the scrap police? Just because we live in the digital age of taking as many photos as we can - because we can, doesn't mean all of them in a run are good enough to scrap.
There was this one time I scrapped a really small photo on a 12x12 page and a few people commented that the photo was too small - and yes it was. But the rest of the page had journalling and pretty artwork to weigh out the balance and besides - that page was going in my album not theirs.
I think what Im trying to say it that you can scrap how you jolly well please provided there is balance to the page or if you are artistic you pad the page with lovely embellies and paper or add multi photos if you have them or just journalling if that's what you do. And if that doesn't float your boat... do what the blummin heck you like.
**alights soap box to go and itch my freckle**
On a lighter note I have a multi photo layout as layout of the week on DO website if you care to take a 5 second break from the monotony of your day.
**EDITED: lol just read some of the comments about my page at the above link and not in relation to this original post and whoa........ don't hold back, anyone - please!**
