Scrapping Our Differences & Similarities

You, Me, Us, Them, Wife, Husband, Sister, Brother…

Our lives are full of roles we play.

For week 24, our challenge is to compare and contrast the people in our lives.

For me, I chose my son and daughter and compared their family resemblance, their bonds with their parents, and the way they interacted with the world as babies.

"Daughter & Son"

There are so many possibilities with a challenge like this one. You could make a list of the differences or the similarities between two family members, or you could focus on a couple and write a few sentences like I did. I have another page in the works and it is a comparison of my baby photos to my son’s baby photos. I can’t wait to see the end result. Your layout doesn’t have to be heavy on the journaling. You can let the photos show the differences.

You could make a He Said/She Said page and describe the differences in the way you and your partner see the same situations. Or instead of you and your partner, the page could be about your siblings; yourself at your current age and who you were at a different stage of your life; your mom and dad; the way you present yourself to the world and the way you are on the inside.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
