House Hunting

This week's challenge in the Library of Memories Community is to create a layout "that combines pictures and words in a way that no one else could." I pulled two photos from my 2009 Storage Binder - these photos were taken three months apart and could be considered totally unrelated. However, I knew I wanted to use them to tell the story of the months my parents spent hunting for a new home.

When I sat down to work on this layout, I remembered another story that went along with this theme.

I used a Shimelle sketch from 2011 as inspiration for this layout and am thrilled to have these stories documented.

Have you combined photos from different times to document a story lately?

  4. Awesome layout, Melissa! I use photos from different time periods so much that I don't even think it's not the norm anymore. That is the beauty of aging your photos - the awesome connections you can make later. :) Have a great weekend!

  5. Great idea and a wonderful layout! I've been going through my Category Drawers, trying to make connections and combine photos I would not ordinarily have thought of putting together. This may be a good summer project.
