Strawberry Fields Forever

What the WHAT??? I did a 2 page layout.  I seriously cannot remember the last time I did one of these.  There's something about them that makes me all cray-cray so I just stay away from them.  That is until I am asked to do one.

My go-to technique for 2 pagers is to use a grid so can you guess what I defaulted to?

One thing I do love about 2 pagers is that you can include tons and tons of photos.  I think the most I squeezed in one time was 12, maybe 14. I can't quite recall but it was a lot.  I selected 5 photos for today's project.

I also like to use two different but somewhat similar backgrounds for each side of the page.  I'm all for things looking uniform but not exact so this suits my needs.

I love to use song titles or lyrics on my layouts and this favorite from The Beatles hit the spot. The song was the first track recorded during the sessions for the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), and was intended for inclusion on the album. Instead, with the group under record-company pressure to release a single, it was issued in February 1967 as a double A-side with "Penny Lane". The combination reached number two in the United Kingdom, breaking the band's four-year run of chart-topping singles there, while "Strawberry Fields Forever" peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 in America.
