P is for Patchwork

Welcome to the February Scrapology Challenge.

This month we are scraplifting this layout designed and created by SJ for the Cardinal Colours Retreat last autumn. We enjoyed creating this class layout and thought you would too, so this month our technique is to use your patterned (or plain) papers to create a patchwork background.
 S-J says:
"I am SJ, a mother of one and an illustrator. I am the creator of "Little Musings" Clear and digital stamps. I live in Bexhill by the sea (UK) with my husband and my dinosaur loving son. I can mostly be found with a pencil, camera or scrapping stuff in hand. I spend my days with my little boy and a brain full of nonsense, which I put down on paper whenever I can! My blog can be found here: http://www.scrappyfairy.blogspot/."

Here is our sketch:
