With Photos or Without?

 Someone told me that they prefer to look at artwork without the photos attached.  The photos are too distracting when browsing.  What do you think?  When you look at the layouts on my blog and on other blogs, do you prefer to see the artwork without the photos or with them?  I am undecided about this.   My blog was created to show off all the great things that Close To My Heart sells and things you can make with that stuff.  It wasn't created so I can show you my life and family.  Ok, so that doesn't sound right but you know what I mean.  My family is important to me but not necessarily to you.  So what do you prefer when you are looking at others blogs?  With photos on the layouts or without?  Let me know.  You can send me a private message or you can comment below.  I would like to hear your opinion. 
There is a lot going on with this layout. I loved making the banner for my title. To do that I took a 1 ¼ inch square and cut it from corner to corner. Then I sponged some of them with baby pink ink and the other ones with cotton candy ink. Then with Archival Black ink. I also used some of the black Epoxy Stickers and layers them with some stamped images. I also did some stamping right on the layout in a few places.

All supplies are from Close To MY Heart unless otherwise noted:
Sweetheart Papers X7134B
Colors are Black, Cotton Candy, Tulip and Baby Pink
Sweetheart Level 2 Assortment Epoxy Stickers Z1386
Sweetheart Stamp Set B1370

  1. I love to look at them either way, but I think I actually prefer to see them complete with the photos. It's really going to be a matter of preference for the individual. ;)

  2. Great layout!

    In answer to your question, I prefer with pictures. It helps me to see the layout better, because then nothing seems to be missing. :)
