These are 2 new blogs I've discovered.
I used the sketch for stuck on us sketches but also incorporated a paper bag and string thereby qualifying for scrap for help as well.
The maroon paper bag was found in a motel bathroom(I'll let you work out its original purpose),but it struck me as a good size for layouts.I border punched the open edge.
The range of papers are by Kaisercraft and named Tudor.
I've used baker's twine from Purple Pumpkin(ie string).
The flower embellishments were cut from parts of the paper you can't see and in the case of the larger one mounted on maroon paper to stand out.
The lettering is American Crafts Do-it-yourself thickers which are sticky on both sides,hence made it easy to cover with the paper.
Our room in Milan had a view of the square near the castle and in these photo's Erica was contemplating a walk ,then went off to explore.
