Might be a big story.
Might be a small story.
Might be an account of an event.
Might be just a thought that is important to no one but me.
But a story is a must.
I am a fan of the show, Top Chef. I always really enjoy the episodes that allow the chef contestants to show who they are as a chef without a bunch of crazy twists or requirements. Just let them cook! I like it when they say "this is me on a plate."
In that line of thinking, this layout is "me on a page"! It's clean, it tells a story, it has a title and a photo and is mostly cardstock.
Start with the story!
