Can I join you ladies?

I don't think I have posted on here before, but I've been lurking a little bit lately. I'm hoping that if I have someone to share my new LOs with, it will motivate me to get more done! I am a SAHM with two kids, whom most of my pages are about. Can't wait to learn from all of you!

Here is a page I did tonight. I'm not particularly thrilled with it, but my goal was really just to get a page done so that I would be back into the swing of it...I hadn't done a page since probably December or maybe January. I didn't have any patterned paper in the colors I had in mind, so I made do with plain cardstock. And I did a little doodling around the title, but I wish I had done it outside the letters rather than around the inside of them, because you can't see it that well. All in all, I am pretty happy with it, though.

The journaling says:

Ahhh...there's nothing quite like a photo shoot with a two year old! You're not exactly cooperative; each time I ask you to "say cheese" or "smile," the faces you make get stranger and stranger. Although the pictures aren't what I had in mind, I love them anyway. I set out to try to get you to smile, but you ended up making me smile. I love you, silly monkey!

Great LO. I think if you used patterned paper it would have taken away from the many faces. You little guy is adorable!

Glad to have you aboard! I love the page, and way to jump back in! Personally, I LIKE the doodling inside the letters, I think it looks nice that way and I can see it fine from here. Smile

Welcome!! I love your page sooooo much that I put it in my scrap lift folder. I have an 18 month old so I have a ton of pics like that. Now I know what to do with them.
