Layout for Explore your Hometown Challenge

I struggled with this layout. I couldn't decide what color papers to use, I wasn't sure what alpha to use and wasn't sure about adding any elements. I think the main problem was trying to find stuff that went with the red in the photo.

All elements, papers and template are by Scotty Girl Designs and are from Stitched Grids Vol 3 Templates, Dreams Come True Kit, This Year Kit and Day by Day Kit.
