My Monday Morning Greeting

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!


  1. Awwww! How cute is that face! Even pouting Ada is so adorable and how lovely to have the time with your granddaughter!

  2. Oh my goodness; she is simply too precious with that adorable pout. I love when babies first begin trying out different expressions. Some can be a total riot. I have one of my son when he was about that age in his car seat and he was giving me this look that was so comical. I titled it "What are you looking at?" He's 7 now and still gives me looks like that from time to time. :)
