Scrapology's April Challenge

The challenge over at Scrapology this month is 'B is for bunting' and to use this sketch:
I am really enjoying the challenges on the Scrapology blog, so having a bit of free time this weekend I grabbed a Sarah's Card kit and got to work with another photo from Prague (I think I have nearly done enough of those now!).
I was really pleased with the finished layout. I made the bunting using a postcard we bought in Prague. It had little pictures on it which I cut out and then layed upon some butcher's twine. Not traditional bunting, but I like the effect of it.

The flowers were made with the Tim Holtz rosette die, which I bought at Ally Pally last weekend. This was the first time I have used it on a layout and I liked the effect. I have included some Russian dolls as everywhere we went we saw them in the shops. In fact I bought a lovely little keyring with one on for myself and for my friends. I am trying to put either a Russian Doll or a little wooden charm of Prague on each layout.
These little buildings were on small pegs, which I cut off the back and then glued onto the layout. Hugh spotted them for me in one of the souvenir shops - he is really good at looking for things for scrapbooking for me :)
