Copper Harbor is Michigan's northernmost harbor. A beautiful location, but absolutely no cell phone service, thus the title! My Slice got a workout creating the custom embellishments.

Variation #1 - I matted some of the photos.

Variation #2 - I changed the embellishments.


Variation #3 - I added hand stitching to the top and bottom of the layout.

Variation #1 - I changed the stars to butterflies.
