Just a quick post this morning--have to get going and get ready for work.  This was one of those stray photos that didn't belong to any particular event, there was only one like this, so a one-pager about the Jacob-expressions was born. 

Journaling is about one morning when Boppa was a bit grumpy and Jacob leaned around his shoulder, raised one eyebrow and asked, "How's your day?"  Cracked Boppa up...end of grumpieness. 

I finally broke into my pack of Echo Park's Times and Seasons for this one.  Since the photo is black and white, I could have used any color combo really, but wanted to keep to kind of a monochromatic, black and white (off-white kind of) and added just spots of color in the layers under the photo. 

Large alphas are Thickers and the tiny alphas are from Making Memories.  Ruled tape is from 7 Gypsies, diagonal striped washi is from Bella Blvd., and the green dot is a generic one from who knows where.   Spattered some paint---and added a few brads, both plain black and gray ones amongst the paint spatters and a few sculptured bronz-ish square ones (old Making Memories set).  The couple of chipboard stars are from a Bella Blvd. chipboard sheet, and the ticket stubs and banners were cut from a sheet of the Times and Seasons paper.

And that's it--I'm off !
