And now for something completely different...

Good morning, all!
No kid on this layout. Actually, no people at all!  Here's the last of the three layouts I made this week for Scrappy Chic:

I think this is the first vista I've scrapped :) It's somewhere over Lake Michigan, at the midpoint of a hike I did with my family last summer.

The background is some lovely woodgrain-textured cs from Core-dinations; one of the Cosmo Cricket collections, I think. But wait! There's more texture:

The title is on die-cut cork (one of the new Tim Holtz dies -- see, it doesn't have to be grungy!). I also used a couple FabRips from Studio Calico and some corrugated CS from Creative Imaginations for the border strips.

It's really a very clean layout -- I thought maybe that open space on the right needed something, but I didn't want to cover the empty it remains.   What do you think -- is it missing something?

Have a lovely 4th tomorrow, or for you Canadians, have lovely memories of the 1st tomorrow!   I'm going to make my wish list for the big sale at Scrappy Chic on Monday -- 2 separate hours of 40%-off shopping! Who could beat that?

Oooooh...that woodgrain texture is dreamy! I like the openness of the layout; I don't think it's missing anything. Love all the cork you used for the label & photo corners! And look how that ribbon has all the blues & greens from the picture-fabulous!

Looks like it was a fun hike, too!

Angela, I am so loving the cork!! That is something I must get. What a gorgeous view of the lake! I don't think anything is missing from your layout. My eyes are drawn to the wood swirls!

Love this! Its so different for you but it works. The cork is to die for as well!!! Might have to try that in my new cuttle bug!!
