It doesn’t matter whether music is playing or not, Kate dances through her day. We went to the zoo and she danced below me on the wooden slats of the pavillion for watching the elephants. We walked to McDonald’s and she danced along the sidewalk. We went to the museum and she danced with a princess. It makes me smile seeing her shoes on backwards and knowing nothing deters her dancing.

To create a double page spread with these photos I captured last week at the zoo, I dragged the layers of another page,  Oh the Places She’ll Go, to a new 24×12 inch document.

I then placed the layers of file 7 from Simple FotoBlendz Template Album No. 2. I replaced the fotoblendz template file with file 5 from MultiLayered FotoBlendz No. 8. To that I clipped artsy paper 4 from ArtPlay Palette Meadow. I also reduced the size of the paper and clipped that to a stain from the template.

After turning back on the frames, I clipped additional copies of artsy paper 4 to two frames. To the top frame, I clipped most of the layers of transfer 2 from Artsy Transfers Meadow.

I actually extracted each of the photos of my granddaughter dancing and added a custom drop shadow to each before placing them on my page. I gave each extraction the same photo treatment that I gave to the photo on the right. Finishing the extractions first helped me decide which template to use. These photos were all taken from above where she was dancing. Basically I used the frames and masks to ground the extractions and provide color for my page.

On the right side, I added two frames from Simple FotoBlendz Album No. 1. To each frame mask, I clipped layers from file 5 of Artsy Transfers Meadow arranging them to provide a background for the extraction. I also stamped a brush from ArtsyStains No. 6. To that I clipped additional layers from Artsy Transfers Meadow to extend the scene.

To finish my page, I added another copy of a flower from MultiMedia Flowers No. 4, rotated it and reduced it’s size. Above, I place png file 2 from MultiMedia Suns No. 1. I wrote my journaling and added a subtitle to tie the two pages together.
