Vintage scrapbook layout

This past weekend I was on a scrapbooking retreat and I managed to complete several pages - I will be sharing with you however some were for individual challenges and so I am posting them first.
This layout was for a challenge over at ARTastic Challenge Blog and their challenge criteria was Vintage style.
At little about the photo.  It is a photo of my grandfather, who we called Pop.  It shows him in his garden beside some climbing roses.  It is how I remember him - he always had his pipe, his braces and mostly wore his slippers.  He came from County Derry, Ireland in 1900 and he never lost his Irish accent on certain words. 
This layout started completely different, I had plans to use a photo of the seaside, but when I found this photo I knew that I had to use it.  It seems strange using pink on a masculine page, don't you think, however the pink climbing roses dictated the colour scheme.  I made the tags, the large pink flower and the flag pennant that I added to the layout.
Here is the inspiration photo from the ARTastic challenge blog:
November inspiration is by Hilda Rix Nicholas called The Summer House.The painting by Hilda Rix Nicholas is called The Summer House.
I was first inspired to use the teal colours but in the end I went with a more vintage style layout.  The hand crocheted lace is from my stash.
Thank you for looking, Margaret :)

I Love it when pages 'take on a life of their own'....I always think they work better when we let them Have their way! I really, REALLY love those tags across the page like that. Looks brill - & the lace works well for that 'vintage touch'! Lovely take on our ARTASTIC challenge again:):)
