Nature Layout

Hello!  I am posting a layout for a picture that I took this summer on the Cossatot River, near Horatio, AR.  My family and I lease some property with a cabin.  The cabin is minimal, but the fun is overflowing at the river.  Everyday I get some amazing pictures of everyday creatures.  This layout is for a picture I snapped of a frog that was soaking in a side pool of the river.  You could see the top part of his body above the water, hanging on to a small branch, and you could also see his feet, I guess that is the correct biological term, below the clear water.  It was a great picture.  I have not printed the picture yet, so I just left the matting empty.  I cut the matting from a cut I created with my Gypsy and the leaves from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.  The matting was cut from a pearlescent paper. I stamped a journaling area.  I also stamped and embossed some plants on this layout (the bottom picture) and placed some burlap on the page to add some dimension and texture to the page.  I did not  make a title, because I think that I will just title the album I put all my nature layouts in.  
I am submitting this into the My Creative Time Embossing Challenge.  I hope you enjoyed the layout and thanks for stopping by and taking a look at this layout.
