Chop that Paper challenge

One of the challenges at Shimelle.com was to create a page using only patterned paper as your embellishments.   You know those gorgeous papers we hoard.....well we had to chop some up for this challenge.   I had some Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends paper from last month's kit at Back Porch Memories, so I cut various pieces from some of those sheets for this page.   The photo is of my mom and her dog, sometime around 1953-1954.   I love finding old photos, scanning and repairing them in Photoshop.  Don't you just love the saddle shoes and bicycle in these photos?
