After a crazy busy week, I was finally able to sneak a little time to scrap this weekend. I decided to pull out another recipe from the Elsie box, since she makes it so easy and I didn't have much time.
I used the "Love Me Some Freddie" card from the Music section. Elsie's inspiration for this layout was Freddie Mercury from Queen. Her designer tip: Create a layout about a favorite music icon.
As always, her layout was fun and colorful. So, I was inspired by the idea and using great bold colors - which seemed fitting with a music themed piece. In addition to Elsie's recipe, I drew inspiration from this greeting card that I found at a boutique in Savannah a few months ago. The colors are so vibrant and I love the white floral embellishment creeping in off of the edge of the card.
For my version of the layout, I chose not to focus on a music icon, but rather an "Idol." During this past season of American Idol, I was a huge Brooke White fan. I cheered her on each week and voted whenever I could (especially when she had a rough night). My pal Neil from the office teased me often about this - and asked if I was planning to "scrapbook her." At the time the answer was no, why would I do that? But, this challenge provided the perfect opportunity that I couldn't resist. This ones for you, Neil.
