The prompt for Lain Ehmann's Layout a Day (LOAD213 - Scrap Happier) challenge for Day 1 was to try and convey your message without using words. No words for a title, no journaling. This was not an easy prompt for me, because the story behind the photo is sooooooo important to my scrapbooking. But, I think I accomplished the goal, with this double-page layout. It's a collection of photos of me and my husband from 2012. I kind of cheated and added numbers in the corner of each photo, and behind each collage is a key that lists the date, location, city, and state of each photo.
Some observations about the process and products:
Most of the heart punches were in my punched shapes (stars & hearts) drawer. Gotta like that!

The left half of the page is primarily the first half of the year. The right page is primarily the second half of the year. I had braces on in the first half of the year, therefore I'm smiling with my mouth closed in the pictures on the left and smiling with my mouth open on the right side of the page.
I had 24 photos of Kevin and I together in 2012, but I'd like to get more than that taken in 2013. It would be fun to do a page like this every year.
