Pavers with Flagstone?

I have looked all over the web but cannot find a picture. I am thinking pavers installed with random groupings or patches of flagstone would look good on a project I am proposing. Has anyone every done or seen this? Your thoughts?

I see that often, in fact just today, at an estimate, the lady had a driveway with huge slabs of limestone carefully placed, leading to the front door. Very cool if you can pull it off. Go for it, don't be afraid!! lol

Elton John was able to blend the piano into almost every one of his songs.

You are the composer.

You can blend anything together, as long as you have taste and creativity.

Design work and song writing are the same thing.

In song writing one needs to know WHEN and how to blend the different instruments together to create a beautiful harmony.

Same with designs. You gotta know how to blend pavers and flagstone so they can be in harmony with one another.
