I recently wrote about how things have changed during the years that I've been raising these youngin' of mine; how the stuff that's now just memory has been replaced by the stuff that makes up our new everyday.
As soon as I did the blog post, I knew I wanted to save it in a layout, so I designed a new template for Designer Digitals to do just that.
Scrapbooking offers such a great opportunity to compare and contrast, almost like a good old-fashioned English assignment. Show how things change and evolve over time. Or how they don't.
What can you compare and contrast?
One thing to consider when approaching a layout like this is to create a parallel structure in your journaling—a tit for tat, if you will.
Write one thing that is gone: kids who are afraid to fall asleep on their own upstairs.
Then, pair it with one thing that is here that directly corresponds: kids who can stay up later than their parents.
Taking this parallel approach to journaling can help propel the process of sharing your story.
You can find this template on sale now at Designer Digitals.
