    Default the backs of your layouts..

    I saw this question over at twopeas and thought it was interesting. What do the backs of your layouts look like? I sometimes have ribbon around the back to tape it, the brads and eyelets are sticking through back there. If there is no journaling on the front than I try hard to write it on the back instead. I really want the story behind the pictures told, even if it isn't on the layout itself. Sometimes there is just extra journaling back there if I had more to tell but it all wouldn't work on the front. I love to write notes back there to Jamie ( and to Allie soon too, but I don't think I have done it yet for any of hers). I think it will be fun for them to pull the pages out one day and find some extra info back there. Once or twice I have actually put extra pictures back there because I couldn't fit them in the layout and didn't want to not include them.

    I always print and mount my digital pages to a piece of cardstock so I can put them in the books too, so the journaling and info is on the back of those as well.

    Some of them are all pretty and clean back there but not often. lol

    Oh, lord! The backs of my layouts are hideous!!! I usually cut the center of my papers out (whatever would be covered behind pictures and mats and whatnot) because I hate wasting it! So the backs of my layouts usually look somewhat like a picture frame, with cardstock around the edges and the back of my pp in the center, or vice versa. Then I sometimes will also have ribbon, eyelets, etc. like you mentioned.

    That is very cool how you have hidden journaling for you kids back there!

    Just like big white and plain I guess. Never thought about it, let alone write back there. Funny!!! Great question though, and cool that you do that.

    Mostly plain. If I have embellishments then those are sticking through.
    I never thought to write on the backs and journaling I do is on the front.

    mine are pretty blank unless brads or eyelets stick through. that saving paper thing sounds like a good idea, i might have to try that!

    I also write on the backs of some of mine or I will slip in anything to do with that page like a school program or something. Although some of mine look crazy with the middle cut out if I am running low on that paper
