Scrapbook Sunday

Hi everyone and welcome to another Scrapbook Sunday!

This first layout uses a photo left over from my holiday mini-book (which I still need to finish) of Ilfracombe, Devon last year. I've used Bazzill cardstock with BasicGrey papers, an American Crafts badge and Numbers. I finished off with a cross-stitch I stitched myself a while ago, it was a freebie in a cross stitching magazine that i've been holding onto for just such a purpose.
Usually, with my holiday photos I like to use an 8x8 post bound album with about 20 page protectors in it, and then I do a summary page to go in my 12 x 12 travel album (one layout per holiday).

This layout was inspired by Mandi's layout here. 

My husband Paul has been obsessed with Dunkin' Donuts for years and when we went on our honeymoon to New York City in 2009 he was very happy to find one down the street from our hotel. I think if he'd had his way he'd have had a box full every day we were there. Donuts aren't really my thing, I certainly wasn't as enthusiastic as he was about them but as you can see in the layout above, it didn't stop me having a few ; )
I took the brown, pink and mint colour scheme from the donuts themselves, but I must admit that i'm not that crazy about these colours together. However I have had these Papermania papers in my collection for years and these photo's were the perfect excuse to use them.
