What comes first: Pictures or Layout?

Last week, I was asked to create something for an upcoming blog feature. I was so excited and new exactly what collection I wanted to use. Then it came down to the pictures. What pictures did I have already printed that would go along with this collection? What would fit?

I know many of you are scratching your heads thinking I am absolutely insane for making layouts with no pictures in mind but my head seems to wrap around this at times. Sometimes I want to just play with paper and then I have to make the pictures fit into the mold. This allows me the freedom to be as artistic as I want and truly manipulate the materials to get the most use out of them. I also work this way when I pre-make layouts to sell and it works well. I don’t know what size their pictures will be and so I go with the artistic creation and keep working.

I can’t wait to link you to the actual blog post this layout will be featured on and I hope you enjoy the sneak peek! :) The materials used can all be purchased at Live.Teach.Create with CTMH. Don’t forget that I am also having a Mystery Hostess Gathering right now. Anyone who purchases from it will have a chance to gain all the hostess credit! So far there is only one person so your chances are HIGH!
