Past & Present

Past & Present

This week, I've been participating in Simple Scrapper's Refresh, a week long members retreat. I haven't been able to complete every activity. But I made Day 1's a priority. And I love the result!

I used Felicity Jane's Sophie kit along with Shimmerz Paints. The design is based off of a Simple Scrapper sketch (No. 345). 

I love that Facebook has a "On this Day" feature. It allows you to see what photos and status updates you made on that particular day over the years. It's similar to TimeHop but for Facebook only. Lucky for me, my "On this Day" photo for February 2 was one of me from 2006.

I remember that day. I was still in college and for whatever reason was out at Lake Travis for the day with my then boyfriend. It was February but bright, sunny and warm. Much like our weather in 2017. I used my digital camera to take this photo. It had some setting that turned the photo these colors. It was all done in camera bc I was years away from learning Photoshop. I thought it was so cool!

Initially, I wasn't so sure how to write my journaling. But then I realized that in both photos I was on the edge of a big change. In 2006, I was a year from graduating and moving to London. Now in 2017, I'm about to purchase my first home. I liked that commonality between the photos.

It was so refreshing to make this page. So much fun to figure out a story and to play with supplies on hand. I need more of that in 2017!

Cheers & Besos,
