Yesterday + Today

Please pardon the photo. I know it's awful. I have a tough time photographing double page layouts. This is from the second assignment in Ali Edwards' Yesterday + Today class. This assignment was to write about six memories and pair them with photos from our childhood. I have a few childhood photos already scanned and haven't had a chance to scan in more yet. I mostly just described what was going on in the picture or memories of things I recognized in the background. Sometimes a photo triggered another memory and I wrote about that too. So I didn't entirely follow the assignment, which was supposed to be words first.

The templates for this class come in both Word format and in jpgs so they can be used in Photoshop Elements. I have been using PSE for nearly five years for my photos, but I have not figured out how to make the digital elements that Ali supplies work for me. I hope I figure it out soon. That's really part of what I wanted to learn from this class.

Regardless, I'm writing and scrapbooking stories that I have not done until now. That is a victory in itself.

A fine victory! I'm still wishing I'd taken the class. It looks so inspiring.
