I've just got into scrapbooking and have found a mass of pages have pretty words on them, embellished 'girl' or 'friends' and other pretty wordart. This can be fantastic, but it makes me wonder if people aren't saying what they really mean because they can't find a matching purple 'commitment' element etc.
Although I think some pages work with no specific description, I feel sad sometimes when I see an interesting photo in a layout that obviously has an interesting story behind it, but is simply labeled 'boy'. I'm not saying a 2-page report is essential, but I know little scribbled notes next to photos in ye olde photo albums of yore are just so special, is this not the same (if not 10 times more elaborate lol)?
Are people afraid of making their own wordart or saying what they think? Have I got the idea of Scrapbooking completely wrong? What's your thoughts?
