January 14, 2009. We have many beautiful pictures that we took on this visit to the Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge, located in the Bitterroot Valley, near Stevensville, Montana. http://www.friendsofleemetcalf.com/index.html
Nothing can enhance God's masterpiece! To crop, embellish, or otherwise place anything else near this, would only take away from its perfect beauty! I know I'm a minimalist scrapper, meaning that I like my pictures and journaling to tell the story without alot of knick-knack; but how could *any* scrapper disagree with me on this one?!? I'll probably frame this; but to "scrap" it - I'll simply enlarge the photo (5X7; I usually do 4x6 or smaller, when cropped), give it a page of its own on neutral cardstock (tan or gray), and write up a small, subtle description in the lower-right corner. If I really want to make my writing even less visible, I'll write directly on the photo with my photo marker (lower-right, where it's darker than the rest of the photo). This will make a nice intro for the rest of the nature photos, which I'll approach in the same fashion.
