Now & Then

During a bored Saturday that we were snowed in I decided we should rearrange the furniture in our living room.   The house we bought here at the lake came with a lot of the furniture including everything in the living room.   So since last fall we had been living just how it was when we moved in.   When we moved the couch around underneath it was the picture at the bottom right of my layout.

The couple we bought our full time lake home from had moved into this house for summers when it was just a small two bedroom home.  Over the course of two years they totally redid the house and added the 2nd story and extended the house to add 3 bedrooms, new living room, three bathrooms and laundry room and added some decks.   We live here full time and absolutely love the house.  I have one of the bedrooms on the old part of the house that looks out to the lake as my scrap room, I couldn't be happier.  

I wanted to make this layout showing the old home and the way it looks now.   When I saw the first color challenge of the month at  "LASTING MEMORIES"  is to use Blues so that is what I did for this layout.

Here is the link to  "LASTING MEMORIES"   and the details for the challenge......
