A scrapbook page

I've been working on this page for so long now I hardly remember where I started from.  Not because it's such a complicated page, but because I have had other demands on my time.  I've worked on it for 10 minutes a day, grabbing supplies one day, choosing the lettering the next and so on.
It started out for Shimelle's Scrapbook Starting Points, but as usual I've thought about various days at the Pretty Paper Party whilst I've been making it.
There's a new page of Studio Calico paper as the base and I have paired it with some Creative Imaginations paper that I have been hoarding for simply ages.  I really wanted the reverse of the Studio Calico sheet for the journalling, but didn't have another copy, so I cut away the piece from behind the photo so that I could flip it over and use it.

There are a few scrap of other patterned papers on there, but other that that I just used the 2 sheets.  The other supplies are:
Suitcase sticker from Amy Tangerine
Date Stickers from My Little Shoebox
Red heart, arrow and label stickers from Echo Park
Title stickers from Sassafras
For the final bit of embellishment I wanted to add some painted dots and circles to echo the ones printed on the brown paper.  I used a pen lid and the end of a paint brush dipped into white and red acrylic paint.  I had to stop myself from getting carried away and dotting them everywhere and looking at it now I keep thinking there might be too many!
