Patterns Galore!

This is a picture of me with my niece and nephew.  We spent the afternoon playing and decided to take a picture to send my mother who lives out of state.  That's why my niece was waving...we were all saying hi to Gram (that's what they call her).

As I mentioned, I am trying to work through my stash and the first thing that always comes to mind is patterned paper.  So on this layout, I decided to mix and match several colors and patterns starting with the hot pink brick paper from Webster's Pages. I selected the floral paper since it has dark pink in it too which brought in shades of yellow, pink and green.  Now it was easy to pick out other papers for layers and embellishing. 

Since the patterns are so bold, I kept the embellishments simple and made clusters of with circles and flags cut from patterned paper and added the buttons and enamel dots.
