After sleeping on it, I decided to drop the actual bunting from the layout but stick with the bright papers and look for a photo which would work with them. I finally chose this one of my children, niece and nephews engrossed in their Nintendo DSs as I felt the colours echoed the game graphics even though we can't see them. The strangely named grey Suet Pudding paper reminded me of a concrete racetrack which suited the game they were playing and provided a neutral background for all that colour. I anchored the strips of paper with brite brads (which I had also had for a while) and added my journalling to one of the strips at the bottom.
