I made this page for the sketch challenge 17 at ScrapFriends. I picked this photo of my daughter because I loved the colors from her skirt and umbrella. At first I had my page oriented the same as the sketch, but then I realized that the ribbon kind of looked like rain, so I rotated my page. Then I ended up cutting up my vellum layer into a cloud since the ribbon looked like it needed a cloud to come out of. I also then added some cloud stamps to help fill up the sky. It's funny how a page can turn out very differently then what was planned.
The ribbon colors were originally supposed to be a big version of my daughter's skirt before I decided that they should be rain.
