Use Poetry on Your Layouts

I realize it is now May and National Poetry Month has ended, but I have one more post on poetry and scrapbooking.
Obviously, we tell stories in scrapbooks, but does anyone ever write their stories in poetry form?

I challenge you to write your journaling in the form of poetry on your next layout.

Here’s my example:

My poem reads:

Sweet potato
Sweet potato
Sweet potato pie
Please be careful that you
Don’t get any in your eye

Yes, a silly song for my daughter when she was first starting solid foods.

Do you ever include poetry on your layouts? Join the conversation on Twitter or Facebook.

    Love it! Used to make up all sorts of silly rhymes for my children, but never used them on los.

    Thanks! I actually made the layout and added the silly rhyme later. I used the rhyme when feeding my daughter but it didn’t dawn on me to include it on the layout until later.
