Digital scrapbooking is AWESOME because with a few changes to the previous design, I can change the perspective of the layout. I can switch out the journaling so it features Louise's viewpoint. And viola! New page design, very little effort.

|Original Photograph of VFW Pin, before cropped out using PhotoShop Elements|
Do you notice that VFW pin? That is not some random element in a scrapbook designer's collection. That was a piece of my grandmother's memorabilia collection. Now do you see why photographing memorabilia is so important? You can use these items in your family history projects.

For the "With Love Louise" bracelet, it didn't need to be cropped out of the white background. The white 'stage' gave the image balance with the other photos on the page. With the VFW pin, the background was distracting. I cropped the image out of the background and now it is an all important accent.
A little bit of journaling, to compliment Louise's handwritten note from the back of the photo of her in boots, and this page is done.
