Then & Now

December 30, 2008 Sarah Coggins

I actually finished one of the circle journals early! Melanie’s theme is “Then & Now.” I found a fun photo of myself in the early 80’s posing with Scooby Doo at Carowinds and paired it with a photo of Trent & me with Mike and Sully at Walt Disney World last month. On each side I listed similarities and differences between myself as a child and as an adult. I stamped the words “then” and “now” using Making Memories foam stamps and a teal Sharpie marker.

Supplies: Miscellaneous black cardstock; Uniball Signo white pen; Bazzill edged cardstock; Making Memories foam stamps; Sharpie marker. Inspired by Dec 24th of dw2008.
