:FIVE FAVE: by PATTERN...Plaid...

A design that consists of crossing bands or stripes of color, almost always at right angles.

Plaid is such a historic and classic pattern that it's only natural that it would show up in scrapbooking.

Here's a few of my plaid favorites available now...

Authentique Paper - Margie Romney-Aslett - Splendid Collection - Richness
I was so sad when I heard that The Girls Paperie was no more, but with the release of Romney-Aslett new Authentique collections, I am sad no more. This cream, green and brown has such a masculine vibe to it...perfect for the rugged men in your lives.

BasicGrey - Oxford Collection - Preppy Plaid
BasicGrey likes plaid so much that they included a couple different designs in their Oxford collection. Again, this color palette may be better suited to boys, but this one has a softer feel

Doodlebug Design - Nifty Notions Collection - Sew Plaid
The color combination in this pattern screams Easter to me.

Fancy Pants Designs - Beach Bum Collection - Hammock
LOVE this distressed blue/yellow combination!

Prima - Madeline Collection - Parfait
While this one might initially throw you off because of the pattern incorporated into the design, it still certainly meets the definition of plaid given at the beginning of the post. Not only is it a winner for this little twist, but the  teal/green/brown color combination is stunning as well.

Of the five featured above, which is your favorite plaid? Or, is there another lovely plaid pattern available now that you adore? Please share a link.
