I want to ride my {sister's} bicycle

It's some time since I made a layout with more than one photograph, but I was inspired to have a go at this week's CSI challenge. It's also quite a while since I had time to take part in a CSI challenge. I find these challenges excellent for making me use up my existing stash and for mixing papers from different collections. It is more of a challenge when I'm away from home and have limited papers etc. with me, but more time to take part.

Here is the case file (71) we were challenged to solve as a scrapbook page.

Colour Scheme - All colours used:
Summer Sun - Yellow Bo Bunny Barefoot & Bliss papers, buttons.
Cheery Cherry - Baby clothes in photo, paper from Magnolia, buttons, Basic Grey letter stickers, nail head stickers, twine.
White Whistle - Bazzill Glazed Cardstock, white Bazzill.
Blue Birds of Happiness - Bo Bunny papers as above, papers from October Afternoon Farm Girl collection, Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist - Bell Bottom Jeans, buttons.
Concrete - Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist - Black Magic, Basic Grey letter stickers, Basic Grey papers from Scarlet Letter collection.

Evidence -
*Circles - photos and Sizzix doily and doily border dies
*Birds (on Glazed Bazzill)
*Ink splatters - Glimmer Mists
*Fiber/Twine - American Crafts Premium Ribbon
*Doodling/pen work - Doodling around letters, tag and shapes

Testimony - Song title - The one and only Queen – “I want to ride my bicycle” with a twist to suit the photos.

Journalling - The tag pulls out and contains the story of the bike and my my brother (in the photos)  eventually inheriting it from me and my sister. I remember going to buy the bicycle with my father and choosing it at the bike shop in Penge High Street. The photos were taken in 1969 and were colour slides which have been converted.

This challenge runs until Sunday 19th May.
Thanks for looking.
