The Memory Nest - Make It Monday #77

Hello, hello! Happy Monday to you! The weather around here is getting colder and it's really starting to feel like Christmas is just around the corner. There "may" even be the mention of snow flurries in the forecast. I'm not holding my breath, but I'm ready to see some snow!

Today is Make It Monday over at The Memory Nest, and Leslie has created a great sketch for us to work with!

While looking through Ada's layouts, I noticed that I don't have many - if any - of just her and her Daddy. I've had this photo that Abby took out on my desk for quite a while and decided now is a good time to get it scrapped!

The papers that I used for this layout were all scraps from the box that holds my supplies for her first year album, but I know the grey background and the pink paper is from American Crafts, and the yellow is a piece of paper that I have seriously had in my stash since the early 2000's! I didn't need much journaling for this layout, so I let the filler card do that work for me. If I am not mistaken it is from a Simple Stories collection...I think...I could be wrong! I know the "Cutest Baby Ever" embellishment was cut out of one of the Simple Stories cut apart cards and matted with the same pink paper to match the layout better. The title is made from rub-ons that I found in Target's dollar spot back in the fall. I wasn't sure how they would work with just being a dollar, but they work like a dream!

Be sure to stop by The Memory Nest to see the beautiful layouts from the rest of the design team. I hope you find some time to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great day!


  1. Super cute layout! What an adorable photo!

  2. I love it! So simple yet cute, and totally my style, LOL! :0) Lately I've been using a lot of "Dollar Spot" and/or hoarded items myself!
