Today Nerd Nest Creative Team member Emily is here to share her take on March’s Nerd Nest Challenge Compare / Contrast.

This month’s challenge was fun. There are so many things that I could have chosen to compare and contrast so it was a bit hard to choose. I decided to make a layout comparing the similarities and differences between my two sons.

I decided to make a venn diagram to compare my boys’ and their favorite things. To make a venn diagram, I used a Simple Stories circle photo crop and made two overlapping circles. I used some alpha stickers to spell out my boys’ names and then added some enamel shapes as bullet points. I wrote down their favorite things and then in the middle (where the two circles overlap), I wrote down the things that they both love and have in common. Below are the lists as well as a closer look at the layout.

Michael’s Favorite Things

  • Favorite animal: Hippo

*You may notice that I did add a few things in their lists that are their favorite things, but is related to their personality.*
