Challenge 151

This week's color combination at Color Combos Galore was Orange, Yellow, White and Teal and in addition, we were challenged to use something transparent on our page. I scrapped pictures from Natalie's wedding and used clear letters on the word "Sweet". I also used pieces of a transparency above the large picture and on the lower right corner of the bottom picture on the left side of the page.

Besties

This week's challenge at Color Combos Galore was to use the colors Sky Blue, Liberty Blue, Sand and Firecracker Red. We were also supposed to use a combination of gingham, checkered or floral patterns in our layout. This was what I came up with. It's a Glamor Shots picture of Kristin and Kendra that was taken before Kendra moved away. Fun challenge! I'm really enjoying using up some of my old papers that have been hanging around forever.

History Repeating Itself

This page was done as a "Backporch Memories" challenge to use pictures and comparisons of two people at the same age/stage in life. I used pictures of my college graduation in 1979 and compared them with Kristin's college graduation this Spring. It was a fun challenge, but I couldn't seem to think of a way to do anything "different" with the page - I guess I'm still struggling through my creative slump.



It was really hard to get a good scan of this one - especially the journaling since it was on a transparency.

Journaling:
I’ve celebrated two BIG college graduations;
First, my own; and just as exciting - Kristin’s!

Similarities:
Both of us went to MCC (now Rochester College)
Both of us lived on Third Floor of Alma Gatewood
My Roommate: Renetta (Patton) Proffitt;
Kristin’s roommate: Jamie Proffit (Renetta’s daughter).
One of my best friends was Beth (Dunn) Rajter;
One of Kristin’s best friends is Jamie Rajter (Beth’s daughter).

Differences:
When I went to MCC it was only a two-year school so I transferred to Oklahoma Christian in my Junior Year.
I lived in Michigan but went to school in Oklahoma; Kristin lived in Oklahoma but went to school in Michigan.
Kristin was very involved in Student Government, her club, newspaper, yearbook, etc. I didn’t get involved - preferring to hang out with my friends.
Kristin was a much better student than me - graduating Summa Cum Laude!
