Welcome back to Day Three of the Unofficial Kelly Goree Week on my blog. In May, I was lucky enough to take Kelly's Three for Three class at Scrapbook Expo which featured Basic Grey's Sugar Rush collection. Unlike last year's class, this one featured all single-page layouts. Here's the layout from Kelly's gallery which has a few minor changes from the class sample:
I loved this design as is but when I got home, I realized that I wanted to use it for a layout about Melissa performing in the school play when she was in 4th grade school and I would need to use more than one photo to tell the story. To make the original into a two page layout, I extended the light green block of patterned paper across the spread so that my pictures would have a block to rest on. After that I pretty much mirrored the first page. Here's my layout:
LOL! Here's a close-up of the flowers:
Once I completed the second page, I did have concerns about the amount of green paper that was showing above my pictures. It just looked so empty. To fill it up, I went through my stash of rub-ons and found the quote, "You put a song in my heart." It seemed to fit perfectly with the theme of this layout. The rub-on sheet also had the cute birds and flowers so using my Basic Grey Rub-On Roller, I created a little scene and finished it off by embellishing a few of the flowers with green pearls.
