Polegate Carnival - Scrapology January Challenge

This month the scraplift challenge over on Scrapology is T for texture and there is a great sketch for a double page layout to use -

I found some old photographs from June 1991 when my St John Ambulance Brigade unit entered the local carnival.

The papers are Doodlebug and the title was cut on the Sizzix using Santa's Workshop 12" die.  The journalling block was cut using Spellbinder Nestabilities.  The butterflies were a download from Swirlydoos forum which I printed onto SU Whisper White and then covered with rock crystal distress Stickles after I had handcut them.  The swirls are a MFT die cut on the BigKick.  The stamp used round the edge of the cardstock is from Hot Off the Press.
