Instead of using ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Photo Masks - Grungy Edge for a 4x6-inch photo, I stretched it disproportionately to make a border for the 12x12-inch page. I generally don't stretch things out of proportion or make them this much larger than they started, but with this level of grunge, the item is very forgiving and it worked well. I used ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Artful Photo Masks as a mat behind the shaped photo. I colored it brown using the Paint Bucket Tool, then used a couple of Styles (Blended and Textures) to make it similar to the cut stone visible at the exit of the tunnel on the photo.

Journaling: The first time Jeff and I drove the Iron Mountain Road in 2002 we didn't know about the spectacular view of Mt. Rushmore through the tunnel. What a sweet surprise! In 2009 we were ready to park and take a quick photo. Christopher was impressed with the view; Michael was taking a nap in his seat and missed the whole drive. William faced backward and didn't have much of a view.

What a great photo. If I ever go here, I will be prepared. Really nice layout, I like the way you used the state outline to frame the photo.
