To start out the week, Get It Scrapped is featuring ideas for using grid or ledger papers on your pages. I am always drawn to these office-style papers; they make great neutral backgrounds and have built-in lines for journaling.
I used some grid paper from Pink Paislee for this page of my DH and DGD. The paper makes a nice neutral background, but it's much more interesting than a solid white or cream would have been. And since the photos are fairly dark, the light background helps brighten them up a bit.
