LOAD212 - Day 5 - like mother, like daughter

The prompt for Lain Ehmann's Layout a Day challenge for Day 5 was: The more things stay the same.

I really struggled with this assignment. I thought about it all day, and could not come up with something to "fit" the prompt. I had decided that I was just going to do my annual Christmas card page. But, after the Superbowl party, as the day and my eyes were coming to a close, I didn't have the time nor energy to do justice to the Christmas card page. So, I forced myself to sit down and whip something out. Then it hit me, a page about how Jordyn and I are similar and different.

Some observations about the process and the products used:

  1. Do I LOVE the design of this page? Not my best work. Hey, it's DONE, not PERFECT.

  2. Besides the metal accents (from Stampin' Up) and the white cardstock, everything else was a scrap. This IS scrapbooking after all.

  3. As soon as I uploaded the page to the LOAD212 flickr group, a great page idea for this prompt came to me. Where was that idea hiding 20 hours earlier?

  4. I had planned on this page taking me 30 minutes. But, it tookabout 75 minutes. Afterwards, I fell into bed without even cleaning up my scrap table first!

Love that you made a page of just "the girls" and that you documented your similarities and differences. Also love that you used scraps and your own handwriting!!
