Mark's Finest Paper Scrapbook Challenge

Please click HERE for my blogaversary giveaway!



Happy Thursday!  Welcome to the Mark's Finest Paper Scrapbook Challenge #14.  This week, we're doing a 1-2-3 challenge.  That means everything on your layout needs to be in increments of 1, 2, or 3.  Don't worry...you can mix or match.  For instance, on the page that's on the right side of my double layout, I used 1 picture, 3 borders, 3 embellishments, and 1 frame.  On the opposite page, I used 2 borders, 3 concert tickets, 1 embellishment, and 3 photos.


Here's the lovely stamp that's up for grabs this month!



So...a little more about my layout.  Last September we went to see a Dave Matthews Band concert at a GORGEOUS place in Central Washington called the Gorge.  Since Dave Matthews lives in the Seattle area, he always saves his best concerts for last every year, and performs on Labor Day weekend for three days in a row at the Gorge.  It's affectionately known as Labor DAVE weekend!


On my layout, I wanted to feature some photos from the day we were there, plus our concert tickets and parking pass. The pics are of my sweet hubby and daughter, and daughter's boyfriend   He and his mom are DMB FANATICS!  They go to all three shows every year, and stay and camp out for the long weekend!



I used a few different cuts from my Silhouette files for the notebook edge borders, the "tickets" and the music notes frame.  I used Quick Quotes papers and a few of their die cuts (the Miss Morgan collection) and solid color cardstock from my collection.


I used MFP stamps from the All Postal stamp set (the "wish you were here" sentiment) and the Be a Showoff stamp set (the "shake your tail feathers" sentiment and the feather image.)

I decided to start with plain cardstock for the base of my pages and then took the peacock feather stamp and ink in a coordinating color, and stamped the page over and over to create a patterned paper background.  I really like the way it turned out, and I'm sure I'll be doing this a lot more in the future!



Don't forget to come link your scrapbook pages up with us for a chance to win that gorgeous flower image stamp.  You must use a stamp somewhere on your layout to qualify, but it doesn't have to be an MFP stamp (although if you choose to use them, you'll get double entries towards the prize!)  You have until next Wednesday at 8 pm EST to link up.  See you there!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Amy, I have Ticket envy. I just love them and these colors are great. The whole double page looks great and is co-ordinated and your frame is awesome.
