A patchwork page

One of Shimelle's prompts was inspired by stitching......patchwork to be exact......some of the inspiration pages looked gorgeous......but a bit complicated to me.....so I've gone for something simple.....but I think it's still quite effective.......to document the visit of my brother and niece earlier this year.
I found lots of scraps of blue and orange seaside related papers and patchworked squares round the edge of the page.....it was a great way of using up small scraps......I'll definately use this technique again.

I really like how you adapted that idea. I looked at the prompt, giggled a bit to myself and promptly deleted it because its sooo not me. LOL!
