Patterns are everywhere!

Another goofy title for this week's post I'm afraid. I had a little revelation while lying in bed the other morning half asleep. I'm in love with pattern. I'm thinking I have to do a scrapbook page all about it. It started when I was really little, and loved examining the bathroom tiles in our house for pictures in the abstract patterns. It was reinforced by the crazy wall papers my mom had back in the 70's, and the beautiful quilts made by my grandmother. The designs, the quilting, and the patterns of the fabrics themselves. I remember vividly the pattern on the entryway floor of my paternal grandmother's house, and the flower pattern on her tea mug.

It's no wonder I now have such a hard time refraining from buying beautiful patterned fabric, and have an insane collection of patterned papers. Perhaps I should have continued my courses in textiles and fiber arts, and completely lost myself in a world of pattern...

Or maybe I'll just keep scrapbooking!

Here's this week's challenge page for Practical Scrappers. We had to work with patterned paper this week. I grabbed a few sheets that were still on my desk from a not so recent shopping trip, and this is what I got:
 I'm not really a fan of die-cut titles, but I love the way the stamped images ( bunny and carrots) turned out on patterned paper. What I'm even happier about is having scrapped some photos of this Easter THIS YEAR! lol!
