Want To Join Me For A Load of Fun?

Have you heard about LOAD?

That's right, a month long challenge to create a layout a day complete with inspiration from Ali Edwards, Celeste Smith, Noell Hyman, and me! I feel a bit unworthy being in the presence of such great talent!

The focus for the October Load is the importance of story in scrapbooking. I loved sharing my perspective of story through photography with Lain. If you've not met Lain yet, you'll love her spirit and ideas. There will be lots of fun, inspiration, and a few give aways!

If you are working on a Photo of the Day project, this is a great way to get caught up before the holidays!

I've got a LOAD entry to give away too! Leave a comment here with a quick comment with your answer to my question and tomorrow I'll announce a winner! Comments close at 10PM Eastern/7PM Pacific tonight!

My question -

Which comes first, the story or the photograph?

Good luck!

My layouts start with a photograph. Its really hard for me when I have a story to tell and no photo. Those end up on the back burner or never done at all!

My layout starts with a photograph, then turns in a fantastic page.

For me it is all about the story. The purpose of photography, for me is to capture the stories of our lives. I love posed portraits but the photos that really make my heart sing are the ones that tell the story of our day to day lives.

That really depends. But I'll go with the photograph since that's what usually gets me in storytelling mood while scrapbooking :)

about 50/50 for me. Sometimes I start with the photograph and other times I start with the story. I love both ways!

mine is both, sometimes it's the photo and sometimes it's the story!
Thanks for a chance to win!!

Mine is about the story, Katrina. If I have the photo, the story follows . . . if I have the story, I can find a photo that is usually appropriate.

Photo first, layout second! Looking forward to what you have in mind!

The photo comes first half the time and the story comes first the other half. both are so critical.

It sometimes depends. Sometimes, a whole story can be made just out of a fun, random photograph. Other time, which is the usual, the story is evolving as the shot is taken. Just love that about photography.

Most time the photo. I think the photo bring about the story
