Converting a One-pager into a Two-page Layout

I came up with the idea for this layout in the middle of the night, and I couldn't get it out of my head! There are a lot of different techniques, so it took me a few days to finish, but it is one of my all time faves. I took it to my local scrapbook store, to show one of the owners to convince her to start carrying Dusty Attic chipboard, and to also see if she would like me to do a different layout using cardboard, if she liked it. When I brought it in, she went nuts! She didn't want me to do a different layout, she wanted me to convert this into a two-page layout to do as a class now! That is a lot harder than you think, because I two-pagers really aren't my style, and this one was already done!

So, I had to start over! And, this is the result:
The stitching is done by hand, and takes just way too long. The cardboard was done with white paint and Glimmer Mist. I used a tutorial by Jan to make the border around the circle: And, I had to change the title, because another teacher had just used "Free Spirit"! The fairies were covered with black glitter, then the wings were sprinkled with Diamond Dust.
