S is for Sisters & also for Selfie

This is quite a long title for this double-page layout but I wanted it to show my 3 Granddaughters (younger in the first page) and how they look now (10 years later).  The title also reflects how social media has had an effect on our language (the word 'Selfie' didn't even exist 10 years ago).

The first page - showing a very young family snap.
 
The second page - showing the girls how they look now!
 
Both pages were created using this month's Mad Scrappers Kit, which consists of Bazzill Vintage Lace patterned papers, co-ordinating cardstock and a Sheer Shimmer Spritzer in gold.
 
I decided to use circles for these layouts because the embroidery hoops patterned paper reminded me of flair buttons and also I wanted a layout that would flow from one page to another and circles does this brilliantly.  This layout could also be used for a single page.  It was lovely to do something different from the usual layering effect that my layouts have been lately and these papers lend themselves to be cut into circles very well.
 
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today.  It is Good Friday (in the UK) so enjoy the day off work (if it applies).  Have a lovely day.

  1. Hi Ann, great LO's. How nice to reflect on the then and now. People use a lot of strange words and LETTERS and seem to think everyone understands. It's foreign to me. Have a great Easter. Hope you have a chance to relax and enjoy the sunshine
