Based Around a Quote

It's not something I usually do. Generally, the photos dictate the story. This time though, I had a quote  mind and I just wanted to use it on a layout. I found a not so great photo of my son who happened to have an awesome expression on his face. I converted it to a pop art style photo grid. Then I based the supply choices for the layout around the quote and the photo. I have to say that I am very pleased with the results.
