Getting from idea to page

Yesterday at around this time, a layout kind of "sprung" to mind.....meaning, I knew in my head what I envisioned it looking like complete, and exactly what I was going to use.
I immediately knew that I wanted tone on tone letters coming out of a Maya Road envelope, and filling out a page. I also knew that I wanted to highlight the initials of my kids by using red.
So, I got started by just putting the envelope on the page, die cutting some letters and scattering them. The plan changed....I decided to then use the negative of the letters, partly because I liked the way it looked and partly, I was a little lazy to keep die cutting.
Everything just went from there. I remembered that little pink card card being in an October Afternoon pack of goodies, and pulled out a few boxes of embellishments.
I have to say, that this layout looks NOTHING like the way I envisioned....BUT, I LIKE IT.

Wishing you all a little inspiration and alot of Sunshine.
