This Week's Scrapbook Challenge...Anything Goes!

Please click HERE for my giveaway!


Hello to you and happy Thursday!  Today is the beginning of a new Scrapbook Challenge at the Mark's Finest Paper ning site!  This week is a popular challenge...Anything Goes!!  Yep, you can do any kind of scrapbook page you would like.  The only restriction is that there must be a stamp used somewhere on the layout.  It doesn't even have to be an MFP stamp, but you get double entries if it is.


So...what are you earning entries for?  Why, this adorable flower stamp!  I wish I could win it!!

On my layout this week, I wanted to do a special page for one of my favorite photographs ever.  The pic I used is a silhouette of my daughter staring up at a sculpture.  When she was going to college, her and her friends used to love to walk all over the gorgeous campus looking for photo ops, and they really found one this time.  I love the way the sunset looks in the background.  I decided to mimic the colors of the sky in the photo with horizontal strips of cardstock.

I added a few vertical strips of paper for some visual interest.  On the light orange piece, I used a leaf stamp from MFP's new stamp set called Marsh Silhouettes.  I used VersaMark ink to give the cardstock a watermarked look.  It's very subtle, but adds a lot of visual interest.


I also used a sentiment from the same set down in the very bottom corner of the page.  I plan to use the white strip right above it for journaling.



Right beside the photo, I used the PEACE sentiment from another new MFP set, Marsh Birds.  I thought the word went perfectly with the gorgeous picture!


Don't forget to join us the week over at Mark's Finest Paper.  You have until next Wednesday May 22nd at 8 pm EST to link up!


Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Hi, wonderful lay-outs. I've been nosing around again hoping to post something on the MFP website but I haven't been using stamps lately. I didn't realize that the stampig needed to be on all entries when I became a member...ooops. I came over as your daughter's lay-out with the framed flower is so pretty. Have a great week, Lisa
