Weekly Layout

As I reported on Monday, the historic flooding has definitely changed the history books in Colorado.  It is truly a great pleasure to live in such a beautiful state with huge Rocky Mountains, smaller foothills, and a rolling landscape, but living with such beauty brings big risks.  People choose to live in the quaint, beautiful mountain towns...and every 500 years or so come record-breaking floods.  Or fires.  We've definitely had our share.  Is something wrong with the planet?

Again...we are FINE!  We had no water damage at our house, but others are not so lucky.  Entire towns have been condemned.  Some aren't expected to "re-open" for six months.  Others have no way in and no way out...and no flood insurance!  It is expected that 200 miles of roadways need to be rebuilt and over 30 bridges repaired and/or fixed...all before our first snow storms of the season arrive in about 4-6 weeks.   Our beautiful Colorado landscape has forever been changed.

On a more happier, fun note, I wanted to post this week's layout.
Yes, we have our very own toddler.  She is such a lively dog.  So playful and fun loving.  I wanted the LO to be just that.  Gracie brings so much laughter and happiness to our house.  I can't imagine our lives without her.

It is based on this sketch from Scrapbook Generation.
Some closer-up detail:
I hope you can see the textures on this layout!  From the textured orange cardstock to the rough feel of the "two" paper to the layered #2 candle!  Doesn't it look so much like the real one?  As is getting pretty normal for me, the title and the #2 candle were cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I layered on some bling to mimic the dots.
The Scrapbook Expo is in town today and tomorrow.  That's where you'll find me...
