Kraft plus August challenge

Wow, the challenge at Kraft plus for August is really interesting. Here it is:
Now I knew I wanted to scrap a photo about trees, I mean when do  you actually get to do that any other time, lol. I had another photo that I thought about using, but then decided on these ones of the Supertree Grove in Singapore. They are these "trees", made from steel posts, and there are loads of them. Some of them are covered in vines and have gardens at the base of them. There is also a "tree top walk" from tree to tree. It is a really cool place and one I recommend if you go to Singapore. 
So now about my layout. I had an idea in my head to create a tree from toothpicks. Do you know how hard that is? It just didn't work out as I had it in my head, so after much fiddling, gave that up as a bad joke, lol. I had a chipboard tree that I used, and wrapped some vine around it, to replicate the vines on the steel trees. I also had a die cut, of a scribble image, which I kind of manipulated, to look a little like the trees, if you use your imagination it works, lol. This I placed behind the tree with vine. 
I used some mixed media on my background - texture paste and leaf stencil, stamping and finished the layout with a Charms Creations arrow and terrific tabCharms Creations is one of this months sponsors for the challenge, and of course I am on the DT.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for the comments you may leave.
