A 'Silent' Layout

I saw a new challenge blog today, Red Carpet Studio. Their challenge themes will come from movies, kinda neat! The first challenge is to make a 'silent  movie' layout. So, a layout with no title, no words, and no journaling. 
I spent a semester abroad in Spring 2011. I have 4 scrapbooks in progress from my trip, and lately I've put them on the back burner to spend my crafting time learning new techniques and making cards because they're smaller and sometimes easier to work with. Well, since this is a layout challenge I brought out my trip stuff. I haven't started on my trip to Paris so I thought that would be fun to work with! I took this picture on my phone. Every night when the lights on the Eiffel Tower come on the flash for a few minutes. The shutter speed on my phone was slower than that of my camera so I was able to get a picture with more of the lights showing! 

The base paper is Bo Bunny and the patterned accent paper is DCVW. The emboss folder is Musical Flourish and the ink is Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Last week I won a Making Memories Distress Kit from Exploring Cricut, it came in yesterday! :) Between that and all the Distress inks I bought the other day, that's about all I've been doing!! On every element I used the edge scrapper in the kit, way too much fun!!
