This was such a fun layout and the best part was the mistakes that I made forced me to be more creative and the layout came out better than what I was planning. I made this layout for the Out of Your Box challenge that Pam hosts every couple weeks. The quote for the 3rd challenge is "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain." Now everytime I see the new quote I think 'Oh this will be easy, this is such a great quote! I'm sure I have some pics that will go perfect with this.' So then I start looking through my photos. And I'm looking.... and looking... and still looking.... then I find that I don't seem to have any 'perfect' photos to go with the quote. Well I can be creative right? I mean I scrapbook and all, I have to be creative! So here I am trying to think of how to use the quote in a way that will fit pictures that I do have. And I'm thinking... and thinking... and wracking my brain for ideas that just don't seem to come lol. Well to make a long story short these photos of Caitie bundled up suddenly popped in my mind as I was moving on to do something new. Caitlyn LOVES storms. I mean she will wake up in the middle of the night, sit up in bed and start gleefully yelling about how it's raining or snowing. She gets so excited, lol. I know that the quote is more inspirational but I suddenly thought it would be perfect to take it literally. And it's funny that I ended up using these pics too because they were in my 'probably never going to scrap' folder full of photos that I truthfully think will not be able to be scrapped. I had pulled them out just two days ago wondering why they were in there since they are so cute. The reason I came up with is that they are small photos from my MIL. She always gets the 3.5x5 prints which drives me nuts, lol. But for these it ended up working out just fine ^_~
