Then and Now


The inspiration for this layout came from some other work, that I saw (but can't remember where?) this summer, featuring old photographs. The little square picture is 50 years old - can you believe that??!! My brother was just a few months old there and he turned 50 in June. I really wanted to create a page based on the theme of then and now so in August I managed to get another picture taken with the 2 of us and I was set. The papers are out of the August kit from S! and the title is handcut. There is a tag (with Maya Road ribbon on it) under the big picture explaining the significance of the page and some things I admire about my brother, Del. I machine stitched around each flower for added texture. I am so happy that I created this!!

  3. I love your layout, Crystal! I scrapped 2 photos - an old photo of my sisters and I, back when I was a few weeks old, and a photo from my wedding day, with us in the same order!! I thought it was pretty coincidental!
