I really like Lady of the Thorns' idea at least about focusing on some non-people photos as the focus of the layout. I don't have now and then photos of houses or towns but a slew of head stones, old cabins and even land deeds that I need to scrap and add to my family genealogy album.
I want to scrap these paper records because I have the originals very carefully stashed away in my hard copy files to protect them. This would be a way to share those records without damaging the originals.
Nice idea Lady!
