    Welcome to MOC Day 10! We’re almost one third of the way through - Woohoo!

    One of my favorite ways to tell a story is to show through photos + words how things have changed and/or stayed the same over time.

    For this challenge you need to have at least two photos (however you can have more - as many as you want to tell your story!) The two photos, or two groups of photos, need to be separated in time by at least six months. You should be able to identify how these photos are connected in some way - the ways in which they are the same and/or the ways in which they are different.

    For example:
    -A home you’ve lived in when you first moved in, and the same home several years later
    -A child at age 3, and the same child at age 13
    -A snapshot of you as a child playing with a favorite toy, and your own child now playing with their favorite toy

    The most important thing is that you should make visibly clear on your layout how your photos (or two groups of photos) are connected. Please include some journaling somewhere on your page describing the connection.

    Here is my sample layout:

    If you are interested in more examples, here are some other layouts I’ve made showing connections from two points in time:
    Connection: waiting at the doctor for answers
    Connection: Mom life at different ages & stages
    Connection: the same costume, worn 30 years apart

    Your challenge layout must include:
    -Two or more photos, taken at least six months apart. You should have only two points in time depicted on your layout.
    -Journaling that describes the connection between the two photos (or two groups of photos). The journaling can be long or short, but must be more than just a name and date. Journal a bit to let us know about how the photos from the different points in time connect.


    Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places:
    1. Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site).
    2. Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean.
    3. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish.
    Your page must contain Lilypad product (pages with photos and font only do not count). Product from other stores will not be allowed for MOC; your pages must contain 100% Lilypad product (current or retired product from designers or guest designers presently selling at The Lilypad).

    This spot is reserved for questions & clarification

    Q: what about a layout that includes spring and winter photos about the same field? just wondering what I could include in my journaling because is pretty obvious that pictures were took at different times.
    A: yes, that would work! Just make sure the photos were taken at least six months apart. Your journaling can be simple, even just one sentence stating that the photos are of a favorite place in different seasons.

    Q: Any chance you would accept more than two time points?
    A: For this challenge it needs to be only two points in time

    Thank you for the fun challenge! We were just talking about her sitting on our laps to her sewing on her own. Can't believe I found pictures almost exactly 10 years apart. Just a few days off. Our first pictures of her sitting on our laps are at 8 months old! But 10 years apart seemed to fit better.

    Any chance you would accept more than two time points? I have a series of three photos which sequentially show the passing down of snowsuits from me to my brother. The first shows me wearing snow suit A, the next has my brother wearing snow suit B and my brother wearing snow suit A, the last shows him wearing snow suit B while I'm in C. I love this series, I think it really does get at a connection.

    Thank you so much my dear for the challenge, I went with a complete different theme, and my pictures are many years apart. The first photo was take on 2016, the second on 2023.

    Thanks for the challenge. I have a gap of about 50 years between the photos, telling the story of a life-long love for cats.

    For this challenge it needs to be only two points in time - I love your idea though and I'm sure you could make it work for another challenge this month.
