Then & Now

Every once in awhile i get all pumped up about getting published in magazines & search out for calls. And then other times i could care less about having my work in magazines. When i found a call at Creating Keepsakes about pages with the subject matter Then & Now, I created this page to submit... and that was 2 months ago, so i am thinking they don't want it. I love the look of this page & had such a hard time not posting it once it was done.

Looking at where you were at & where you are now is soothing for the soul. (At least it was for me, when i created this page.) I thought this (being the start to a new year) is a good time to be reflective about life & time passing by. How is your life different from a few years ago? How has your appearance changed? What about the home you live in? Of course there is always your kids.

Check out this posting Gone Are and Here Are—the layout by Cathy Zielske back in November. I used the template she talks about in that posting & you can get it by following this link: Cathy Zielske's Layered Template No. 11. Happy New Year!

Well they are just plain crazy. I think this LO embodies really import concepts of design. The repetition of ideas that are the same but not. I glad you got to post it though. I never buy mags anymore so I wouldn't have gotten to see it.
