Scrapbooking, Umbrella

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.
