Frosted Design Direction Challenge-"Growing Up Big"

My layout today is one I created for the Frosted Designs Challenge :
What Direction?  
 Your project needs to have something indicating direction.  You can go literal and use arrows or get wordy and use directional words:  East, West, Up, Down, Over, Under, Left, Right....you get the idea.  You can even get a little creative and use a compass or weather vane....  You can interpret this any way you want, but be sure to explain it in your blog post if it's not really obvious!

I chose these pictures of my grandson Micah who just turned 2 before Christmas and is  "growing up big".  He and his sister Kenzie love to climb and be up high.  They are both little monkeys and very daring.  
I found the arrow paper in my stash and used green and orange Bazzil to mat.  
The "Growing Up Big", climb and play are files from Silhouette America and I did print and cut for them and then cut the mats in Bazzil. The title is pop dotted.  The buttons were added and I punched out a Chevron pattern from a matching paper and highlighted it with green.  I used the remaining punched 
out pieces to highlight the pictures.  
I really like the way this turned out as all the arrows and chevrons show movement, direction and being on the go and that definitely is a description of Micah.  
Thanks for looking and I hope you will leave a comment.
Happy craftin!
