Then & Now


I don't scrap many pictures of just myself but I wanted to enter the challenge #54 at
"SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF" which was to use a present picture and a childhood picture of yourself.    But first I wanted to wait and find the right sketch to use with it.   Today the newest challenge came out at  "SKETCH N SCRAP"  Sketch #155 was perfect for the pictures I had already picked out.

I wanted to use yellow patterned paper to go with the short set I had on in my Then picture, it was by far my favorite summer outfit for many years.  I wore that till it was all but thread bare.   But then I also wanted to incorporate some blue to go with the blue water from my now picture.  So I tore the edges of the yellow, hopefully to look like little waves on the lake and then backed it with blue patterned paper.   I added the bright blue scalloped card stock and some bling and a yellow flower for the touch of yellow again.    Plus this sketch had me using washi tape that I rarely used.

It was so fun to put these two challenges together and to look back at an old picture of me and document about it.

Here are the links and challenge info.
