Mornings at Mimi's

This is one of those layouts that the photos laid on the table for 2 days, and there were several different patterned papers laying under them before I made the decision to go with these. These photos are from when my granddaughter spent the night with us a few months ago. She's such a sweetie when she wakes up -- well, all the time -- but this layout just tells a little of the story of the time we spent with her. Ignore the fact that my hair hasn't been brushed, and I have no makeup on in these pictures. Yep, there ya go, looking even closer to see those pictures of me! LOL. I used my Doodlebug Designs Paper Frills on this LO -- that's the blue strip under the photos at the top and the little yellow strips between the photos at the top on the left page. I used a punch on one of my granddaughter's pictures and then cut an oval from my Cricut to put behind it in the title. That picture of her asleep was great, but she was covered with a dark red and blue checked quilt, and it would have clashed with the other photos and papers, so I used it this way. The arrows and designs next to my journaling are cut from chipboard in my Cuttlebug. The sun is from the Mickey & Friends Cricut cartridge. The flowers are a punch. As always, thanks for looking!

The pop dots really add so much to the layout. I like the way you post photos so we can see this dimension. It's sometimes hard to see when the photo is straight on.

I came looking for the baby card, but it's not here yet.
