layouts from this weekend.....

Gracie's Comfy Couch
Gracie got this little couch for Christmas last year and it's by far the neatest thing ever! She loves it and everyone has fun sitting in it with Gracie. It's pretty comfortable, too! We found it at Wal-Mart and I'm pretty sure that she'll get a lot of use out of it for several years to come. I'm actually kind of so-so on this layout. Maybe because I was working on it at 3 a.m. and not thinking straight. lol This morning, I took it apart and put it on the light blue card stock. It was on a coordinating floral paper and it was just too much for my eyes to handle. It does look a lot better, but I'm not loving it. I think it's the paper.....I do love the paper, but I think it's the colors that are getting to me. Oh well! I'm being silly and too picky! It's cute and most importantly, it's DONE! lol
Gracie, Our Santa Baby
I love these felt poinsettia's that I found on clearance at Archiver's!
Oh, Oh, Ohh!
This one will take a bit of explaining. lol Gracie loves music and every morning we would watch music videos on TV. She absolutely LOVED the Beyonce song "Single Ladies". And, they used to show the video A LOT, so she would dance around the living room and sing, "Oh, Oh, Oh!" a long with Beyonce. You could also watch it on-line and as soon as I showed her that we could do that, she wanted to watch it all of the time! She even sang it in the car! lol The video is black & white, so that's why I chose to do black & white for this layout. Silly, but fun! lol

Me & You
I had printed out this photo of me and my husband on New Years Eve awhile ago and the other night when I was scrapping and ran across this paper in my stash, I knew that it was perfect for this picture! The arrow ended up being pretty grundge and I wasn't meaning it to. lol I had painted it marron first and didn't like it, so I tried to then paint it light pink and it just wasn't turning out like I wanted it to. So, I tried to wipe off the pink paint and it only came off half of the arrow. So, I decided to put glue all over it and cover the whole thing in light pink glitter. You can still see the marron paint through it and I think it turned out pretty neat. A happy accident, that's for sure! The "Me & You" part that I highlighted in the circle were not colored in originally. I used a blender pen and my Stampin' Up markers to color it in, so that it stood out more.

So that's it for my productive, scrappy weekend! I hope you enjoyed looking at these, because I really had a good time scrapping them. Now, I REALLY need to sit and start putting my layouts into albums! I am embarassed to admit that I have a VERY, VERY tall stack of layouts that are not in albums.......all of this work and they are stacked up in my closet. Oh, how sad is that???? Does anyone else seem to have this problem? I really need to just start using those 40% off coupons and picking up an album every other week or so......it's a shame that we can't enjoy them because they are hidden away.

I hope you all have a blessed and beautiful Autumn day!
