Faceless photos

As a soccer mom, I can't even begin to tell you how many pictures I've taken of Sarah in action that have been deleted because I can't see her. How dumb am I to have deleted these? 
We don't need to see the faces in the photos to capture the event. 
Especially such a thing as sports. 
Sports photos are supposed to have action and movement. 
After all, isn't that what they do in sports?
At first, when I stumbled upon this challenge over at Club CK, I was at a loss and didn't think I had any pictures that would fit the challenge of doing a layout with "faceless photos." 
Then I found the soccer pics! 
So here is the layout I did of Sarah at one of her first soccer practices. She just started playing last year and really enjoys it. She has a game tonight, as a matter of fact, so the timing to work on this was just right.
There are some faces in the smaller photo, but my focal point here was Sarah, so I made it count.
I used a variety of supplies that I've had in my stash to put this layout together.
Thanks for looking, and the next time you go to delete a photo because you didn't get the person's face...think before you delete! 

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

  1. I have LOTS of faceless photos. Sometimes they can tell a neat story, even though you can't see their face. Great page, love the giant soccer ball!
