Only Scraps Allowed: 4 different patterns

Monday 22 October 2012

Afternoon all - I know I'm very late posting today! That's because I've been at the hospital this morning (see below!) and when I went to schedule the post last night my photos had corrupted so I couldn't do it until now...

This week's Only Scraps Allowed Challenge is to use 4 or more patterns on your layout. I had a great photo of my baby group babies all lying on a multicoloured mat which was ideal for this challenge so I raided my scraps basket to see what patterns would work together:

And here's my layout:

I was a bit worried about using so many patterns on one layout, and these were all quite bold patterns too, perhaps I should have picked out some more subtle ones but there were certain scraps I just wanted to get used up so thought I'd go for it and see!

If you'd like to join in the challenge this week then create a layout using your paper scraps (one whole sheet allowed for the background and add any embellishments you like) and incorporate 4 different patterns into it! Then link your layouts below.

Oh yes and the reason I've been at hospital all morning:
 I'm expecting! 14 weeks tomorrow and due on 23rd April 2013 all being well.

Happy Scrapping!


  1. Congratulations!!! Well done on the UKS mystery kit, I love it. I hope to complete it very soon!!

    Beautiful LO and all those papers look great together.

    PS: Great layout - I'm inspired to try to use some of my scraps now.
