Scrapbook Sunday

Hi everyone, and welcome to Scrapbook Sunday. This week's first layout is with a photo I took last summer (pre-diet, I should add) when myself and my mother-in-law used to go to Costa once a week for a coffee and a cake, or in my case, hot chocolate I don't like coffee.

The papers are a mix of old Sassafras Lass, a Hambly overlay and American Crafts Teen and Love ranges. I'm really happy with these photos, I took them on my phone and they came out rather well I think. The hearts and the cupcake were cut out of the American Crafts papers. The layout was all made from scraps.

The second layout is for my Book Of Me, I spent an afternoon last year with a bunch of t-shirts, scarves and hair accessories taking self-portraits to scrapbook. Not having kids, I have to admit to scrapbooking about myself rather a lot.

Most of the papers are BasicGrey Urban Prairie range, but the ones behind are old Papermania, it's pretty rare for me to mix manufacturers because I'm not very confident at it but I think these wrok well.
