I can see you

Hi everyone, I thought it was time I did a page for my Lake District scrapbook. We visited a waterfall called Aira Force and took loads of photos so you'll be seeing a few more soon but this is one of my favourites. I'm only just really getting into scrapbooking as I'm mainly a card maker...
 The 12x12 is from the Vintage Scrapbook Pad by Grace Taylor and looks like woodgrain. I've doodled a border round using a fineliner. When I got my Big Shot donkey's years ago (it's the original green one!) I acquired a branch die. I've had it so long I have no idea where it came from or why, it hadn't even been opened, but I thought it would be great to extend the tree branch. The little squirrel was made using my Cricut and the Cindy Loo cartridge. The sign post was made using the Winnie the Pooh cartridge and the look here sign (with added googly eyes) was from the Cricut Sampler cartridge. The letters were made using the Cuttin' Up cartridge. I've inked various bits with Tea Dye distress ink, including the leaves on the flowers, which were made with a Spellbinder die. I cut the flowers out a while ago using a friend's Tim Holtz die. I added some writing to the tree using a white gel pen. Here's some more piccies...

 I would like to enter this in the following:-
