I was excited to start my page, but I found myself struggling a little. Most of my layouts are what I could call "everyday scrapping" - a cross between a photo album and diary. As I started to gather my ideas, I found myself thinking that my everyday photos weren't special or profound enough to carry a whole page without pretty papers and elements as decoration.
This actually surprised me because I often scrap with very few embellishments. If you look at my most recent pages, I think you will see that I've ventured into the "five items or less" phase again. So I was surprised that I would feel that my photos weren't enough to make a page presentable. But regular old everyday photos are all I have, so I didn't have much choice in the matter. In the end, I used some park photos. And I love how my page turned out:

So, do you always use kits? Would you like to take up the challenge to scrap without a kit? Our challenge over at DST is in place until Thursday Feb 3. Oh, and check out Stef's blog, StefStyle- she's the digi scrapper I know who doesn't use kits, and her pages are amazing!
And here a two more layouts I made this past week, with kits, of course:
