This is how I am usually greeted on Monday morning when I pick Ada up from Abby at the school. I just might think she doesn't care for me, but that pout usually turns into a smile pretty quickly!
I feel like I am patterned paper challenged when it comes to using a pattern my background. I guess I'm just too used to using a solid color (and usually that solid color is a neutral color) background. I feel like my layouts are so busy when I use a patterned paper! But, I am trying to add a little variety to my pages.
I loved the Vintage Bliss collection from Simple Stories when it first came out, but at the time I didn't have much use for a girly collection, so I just picked up a couple of pieces of it. Now that Ada is here, I am kicking myself for not getting more! I did pick up the 6x6 paper pad of it a couple of weeks ago at Hobby Lobby when they were 50 percent off and I just may have to go back and see if I can get another one! I used a sketch from Scrapbook Generations - Sketches For Scrapbooking, One Page sketches - Vol. 1, and was able to use a variety of the papers from the pad.
I'm sure this is not the only layout I'll have of Ada's pouty face - it's just too darn cute to not share!
