New York City Layout

My husband and I spent a few days in New York City last summer. When I got home, I had enough photos that I couldn't fit them all on one layout the way I wanted, so I used a sketch from "Magic" and used the waterfall template. 
As a whole, the city was overwhelming to me - SO busy all the time (mind you, we stayed right at Times Square)! The layout has a grungy look to it and that is intentional - as is the "A-MAZE-ING" title. 
I wanted to get across the point that the city really is a big maze. 
Did you notice the maze paper in the background?? 
Funky, huh? 
The tread tracks on the title were created using a prescription pill bottle lid and black ink.  
As always, click on the photos for a closer look.
