I'm misunderstanding something fundamentally

I chose to post this to the html forum, however I'm unsure if my problem sits in the css or the html at this point.

I'm working on my portfolio and I'm having issues getting my thumbnails to display properly after I add the text to each one.

For example, this is how I want it to look. http://chiandet.com/index2.html

When I add my text descriptions, this happens. http://chiandet.com

There's something silly that has me stuck in this corner and I think I've trouble shooted this as far as I can go lol. Can someone lend some fresh eye balls to this?

Looking at this quickly, the problem seems to be stemming from placing a grid_12 on the parent element of the thumbnails which isn't allowing the children to align properly. Instead of giving work the class of grid_12, give each thumbnail a grid_4, or whatever you want them to occupy.
