It's Another Scrapbook Challenge!



Happy Thursday  Wow, where did the week go?  Sorry for the crickets around the blog this week.  We've had some company in from out-of-state, and sometimes you just have to set your routine aside and party and play a little instead!

So now that we're at Thursday already, it's time for another Scrapbook Challenge at Mark's Finest Papers!!

This week's challenge is a recipe challenge. Here's the recipe...

Main Ingredients – use all 3
Stamps
Cardstock
Patterned Paper

Optional Add ins – Use at least 2
Photos
Ribbon
Brads
Buttons
Gems
Stickers
Stickles

Directions: Create a layout using your selected ingredients. Add a title and/or journaling.





Here's my offering this week and here's my recipe:

Cardstock - from my stash
Patterned Paper - Kay & Co

Optional Add ins: 
Photos - my babies!
Ribbon - from my stash
Gems - from my stash
Stickles - silver

My kid's big sister is here visiting from Texas this week, and although she's not a papercrafter, she came into the craftroom with me while I was working on this project and we had a blast together.  Her crafting theory: everything is WAY better with more bling!  So she played around with Stickles, outlining the flower on the page with it, and then had to bling up the centers of the other flowers too!  Now I have a sparkly page!


I also went off-recipe a little to add some additional glitz by using Elizabeth Craft's Glitter Ritz glitter on some coordinating cardstock and then stamping the cute little peacock on it with Memento ink.  I love the Glitter Ritz glitter because it actually accepts different kinds of inks and markers, so you can make some spectacular stuff!  You can see some other examples of it here, here and here


Please join is this week at the Mark's Finest Papers ning site for the challenge!  The challenge is to make a scrapbook layout and use stamps somewhere in it.  They don''t have to be MFP stamps, but if you use them, you'll get double chances at the prize!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
