Scrapbook Layout Description - 12x12 layout
While taking photos of my grand daughter, I was amazed at how many photos I ended up taking that were the same situation or posse that I took of her mother 20 years ago! It wasn't on purpose, just cute things she did and when I got to scrapping them, a memory hit and I looked back in my stock of photos and there it was...the same situation, 20 years ago, with another little girl, that could be a twin to my grand daughter! It made for a perfect scrapbook layout. Mother and daughter doing the same thing 20 years apart. Who says times change?!
"We Love Icing" - The top 2 photos are of my grand daughter "sneaking" a taste of the icing on a birthday cake. The lower photo is my daughter (her mother) "sneaking" a taste of the icing on a birthday cake 20 years earlier! Mother is a bit older than daughter in these photos, but the "sneaking" was obviously inherited!
"Helping Papa": The top 3 photos in this layout are of my grand daughter helping her Papa wash his truck. The lower photo is her mother - 20 years ago at the same age, helping her Daddy wash his truck. Although some things never change, (you know men and their trucks!), these 2 little girls are definately related! Notice the little sillouette of my grand daughter looking over the one photo at the top!
Scrapbook Techniques Used
These layouts are quick, easy and inexpensive. This helps for getting layouts done and staying current!
In the "Helping Papa" scrapbook page, I cut a sillouette of my grand daughter and proped it up on top of the one photo like she is looking over the photo to the layout. It was just a litte extra thing I added. I had just learned about sillouetting, and just had to use it! I also used a corner rounder on the photos, no mattes and just wrote names and dates below the photos. The only extra feature was die cut letters - I bought them for 5¢ each and used them for the title. But what I did that you can't see in the picture is, once I had the letters adhered to the page, I took a scrapbook marker and did a "dash" line around each letter - just to help them stand out a bit better.
