Then & Now... Yesterday & Today Week 7

This week I made another digi layout... I have decided since I started the class with digital layouts, I will finish it this way and eventually I plan to create a coffee table album... At least that's what they call it from where I plan to order it. What this means is the album will be 12 x 12 and it will look much like a picture book, the pages will not be printed separately like they would in a scrapbook album. I like the idea so I'm going with it! I hope to have this completed before Christmas and I will have to go back and re-create at least one double page spread. I might have to add a few extra layouts as the book requires 20 pages... it shouldn't be too difficult!

This page is about my career...

Template is Ali Edwards, Flower paper - Crystal Wilkerson, Graph paper - from designer digitals Haiti Kit.



Have a great weekend!

  2. Great layout - the quadrant grid is a design I return to again and again.

    What an interesting career path - I'm always interested in the variety of work that exists within one profession such as nursing

  3. I really enjoyed reading about your then and now experiences of nursing, maybe I will do something similar as it would be interesting to record those differences.
    PS Did my mad mail art and pressie ever reach you?

  13. So interesting to read and lovely to look at - and to know a little bit more about your dedication and care for others. This is a great then/now page and a coffee table book sounds wonderful. I am still toying with the idea of doing one myself ...
