My oldest son (pictured here) is one of the world's pickiest eaters. A few days ago, while attempting to get him to try something new, I referred to "Green Eggs and Ham" (by Dr. Seuss)... and suddenly, the idea for a layout popped into my head. After I completed it, I decided to make a 2nd page, which will be the right side of a 2-page spread when I print, starring my youngest son (not pictured here), who will eat anything. Anything at all.
This particular layout mainly uses "Hopscotch" (a few items are recolored slightly, such as the yellow flowers)... along with a few items from "Believe" (kraft background paper), "Barefoot" (kraft hanging tags, desaturated a bit; yellow ric rac, which was recolored), and "Autumn Medley" (staple).
Special thanks to SP and her "Princess" layout
... my first layout began with a template that I rotated 90 degrees. When I decided to make it a 2-pager, I wanted to add something linear to each side to anchor the set -- so I searched through the gallery for ideas, and found her layout w/ the vertical paper strips. Perfect! Ironically, before even finding hers I had already used the same dotted background along w/ a kraft background on top of it (great minds!)... so this ended up feeling like a scraplift! LOL
