Great Grandma Scrapbook Layout

I’m trying to do more scrapbook layouts so today I’m playing along with the Let’s Scrap challenge.  I had a minor issue with this layout because I put one piece of Designer Series Paper on upside down, so it’s not exactly like the sketch.  I used my Stamparatus and applied the ink with sponge daubers and stamped twice to get a clean & bold image for the pennant stamp.

Here is what it was supposed to look like but then things would be upside down.  🙂
