Scrapbook Remix 2-a bit more pattern

Scrapbook Remix is a Shimelle online class designed to inspire us in using patterns together
Shimelle suggested we try using just 2 colours of patterned paper......this was a perfect prompt for me.....I have lots of photos from the Chelsea Flower Show.....most will eventually soon be made into a mini book......but as a visit there had been such a long held ambition I wanted a page for my 2012 album [keeping an annual album was inspired by Shimelle's Cover to Cover class].....and two colours were easy to choose for these photos.
So out came the green and orange patterned papers.......along with an assortment of flowers [something else I have too many of!!]
And this time I did manage to use more than one patterned paper!!!! 
The layout kept quite close to Shimelle's page layout.....I really like the L shape of the patterned papers......and I didn't even need to cut the strips......they were leftovers from other pages.
I'm linking this page to Jennifer's Scrapbooking Soiree.......why not take a look at some of the other pages linked up over there.

I really like this layout. The flowers are a great addition since it was a flower show! You also used a variety of papers even though it was a 2-color layout. I think you carried out this assignment very well.

Love the two colour idea, but I'm also taken with the flowers - they look so pretty that I'm going to go looking for some I have tucked away now :)
