How did I do that ..Alicia Creative use of pattern paper

I love to make good use of double-sided patterned paper. On this page, this beautiful floral paper has a yellow gingham backside and I had a difficult time deciding which I liked better, so I decided to mix and match them. I used my Cricut and cut out a large scalloped circle. I then slice a section of the scalloped circle off and used the larger section beside my 2 photos:

To create movement throughout the page (and to use that beautiful yellow gingham), I then took the smaller section of my scalloped circle and turned it over. I then cut the circled-parts of the scallops out and used them on the other side of my photos. It was a "creative" way of using that entire scalloped circle but I was able to show off both sides of the paper.
