Scrapbooking Non-Perfect Photos

When scrapbooking events where you may have photos that are not quite perfect, go ahead and give yourself permission to scrap those photos as well. It's okay to include photos that may be a bit dark or even blurry if they will help tell your story. It's also a great way to show personality traits, like in Christa Paustenbaugh's page below. A picture really is worth a thousand words! There may be details within your photos that you want to make sure gets recorded, like grandpa's car sitting in the driveway, or the address on your front porch. If you don't want the less than perfect pictures to distract from the other photos on your layout, consider printing them out in wallet sizes, or cropping them a bit. You can even house those non-perfect photos in a pocket on your layout. That way, you still have your memories recorded-even if the photos aren't perfect!
