Then and Now

Did you catch the new Simple Sketches sketch this past Saturday?  I was luckily enough to see it weeks ago and put it to use quickly, but the weekend was such a blur I'm only getting to post it now.  First take a look at the Sketch:

I flipped it so it would work better for me, and here is what I came up with:

Insert squealing from delight!  I've never scrapped a then and now page, but had to for these photos.  Our youngest loves, loves her baby.  I took the now photo one night as I loved how she was holding her with her very own blanket...then I remembered I had a photo from back in the day too!

I printed these photos with some distortion added to them.  My husband questions this, "why do you have a good camera and then make them look terrible?"  Well...I like it.  From the photos, I knew I wanted to use Pool Party, Real Red, and Pretty in this combo!

I originally had taken out my  '&' mask to do some spritzing, but thought it may not stand out.  Instead, I traced it and then brayered my Embossing Folder and ran it through my Big Shot.  From there, I found some patterns of paper I liked, added some flags, and did some random "spritzing" using the Gorgeous Grunge set.  I added some little pearls among the speckling.

This is one of my favorites!!  Thanks for peeking, and be sure to check out what the designers have created.  I'll be back Saturday as I'm up with another fun sketch and a layout of the other daughter!
