I purchased this for an album for our great grandson. There are more pink and lilac pages than I will want to use and the patterned pages are mostly stripes and dots. It would be helpful to show more individual pages from a collection than just the cover.
Despite a previous reviewer, the image that SB shows is, yes, the cover of the paper pad. But, the cover shows exactly how many different types of sheets there are. There are 12 different designs/colors and 3 sheets of each (single-sided). The patterns are only stripes and dots and 1 design with the cute little stars that is gender neutral. Though it's only stripes and dots, the sizes of the stripes and dots vary on each color of paper. Though it's part of the "Animal Tales" line, since there are no animals, it can really go with anything without being overwhelming!
I purchased this pad to use for party favors for a baby girl shower (will be using pink, green and yellow). I will use the blues for my sons' baby pages, and the purple and orange pieces, I'm sure to find another use for it. I actually really like this pad of paper and found it to be exactly what I was looking for - pastels and simple and subtle patterns.
