Repeat Repeat at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are all well and those not I wish well soon.
I have been enjoying the lovely sunshine we have been having here in the UK for the past few days - and even got through a huge pile of ironing out in the garden :o)
What will I do when the winter comes - I just can't seem to get motivated to iron indoors!!!

The BIG news from the Simpson household is that Jack has a 'girlfriend' - well not an official 'girlfriend' as he hasn't officially asked her yet - he's still plucking up the courage I think but they have met up a few times now - mostly with other friends - today though they are walking home from school together and going to Starbucks. It's amazing the effect that girls have on teenage boys - I think he has bathed/showered more in the last week than he did the whole of the summer holidays ;o)

So today sees the start of a new challenge over at


and this week the theme is a fabulous one


Basically we would like you to use a repeat design of something e.g flower, die, gems, text etc

Here's what I came up with and my repeat items are flowers and pearls:
