A Note from Vivian
I used the design of my daughter’s t-shirt as a jumping-off point for the design of this layout, using it as my major visual element and as a piece of my journaling as well.
Everyone always says that Sadie is the perfect mini me. This pair of photos confirms it – the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! At left, me (and Dad), circa 1974. At right, Sadie, 2008.
November Fun Fact
I had to interpret the Young Me/Now Me theme loosely, as my mother—who lives across the country from me—keeps a tight hold on photos from my youth. The photo of me on this layout is one of a few I’ve managed to sneak away and scan over the years. Mom, if you’re reading this, please share more photos!
