Scary and Cute



I made this page on Halloween and it seemed appropriate.  My husband looks downright scary!

When he visits his family, he doesn't shave until it is time to come back home.  He knows I hate it when he is unshaven and he won't get a welcome home kiss if he doesn't do something about that :-) Apparently, hair combing is also an optional activity.

Unfortunately this is the only photo of him holding his new baby grandson last December.  At first I thought it was just because they had been at the hospital all night but then I realized this was a few days after the birth.  Little Emmett looks adorable and he is sleeping so he can't see that Grampa needs a little grooming.  Babies can't focus that well at that stage anyway, can they?

The photo presented a real challenge.  All the colors are dark and just don't work for a newborn baby page.  I tried baby blue and that really didn't work.  So I went with Shimelle's suggestions from last week's Glitter Girl to use a more blocked layout in brighter colors for a masculine feel.  The colors are still suitable for a baby and the photo really doesn't stand out as much in person.  These papers are some old Stampin' Up! for the background and newer My Mind's Eye and Cosmo Cricket from Artfuldelight's October kit.

In other news, friends and family keep calling to see if we are alright and if we are snowbound.  Apparently there are reports around the country that we had a ton of snow.  We didn't have a flake here in the foothills.  We were very fortunate the storm passed around us with just a few gusts of wind and a sprinkle of rain.  I think the higher elevation mountains in NC got some snow. We were very lucky. It is heartbreaking to see the devastation up the east coast.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. The colors seem like a perfect combination, Lisa. I especially like the stitching, too. Looks like "grampa" was happy to greet little Emmett. :-)
