Happy Thursday! Welcome to another edition of Mark's Finest Paper Scrapbook Challenge. I'm so glad you could come hang out for a while! This week, the challenge is Birthdays! Create a layout about someone's birthday or about anything that is associated with a birthday. You must use a stamp on your page to enter, and it doesn't have to be a Mark's Finest Paper stamp, but you get double entries if you do use one of theirs!
Here's the cute stamp you could win! This is the last week for this stamp so make sure to enter if it's one you would love to have. I wish I had it!
So...first off, I want to apoligize for the sorry state of my photos this week! The online photo editing program I always use wasn't working for some reason, and since I always seem to wait til the "11th hour," I couldn't find another one that I was familiar with in time to get this posted. So, you'll be seeing some really raw photos with icky colors. I wish you could see the true colors of these pages though...they're so brilliant and bright!
When I started looking for birthday photos to scrap this week, I quickly realized that we rarely take birthday photos since my kids are grown. So...I went back...WAY back to each of my children's first birthdays!
My daughter's page is first although she's the youngest. She'll be 27 in a couple of weeks. Where in the world does the time go??? My son's page is below...he's 31 now, and just had his first son (which I'm sure my regular readers are painfully aware of since I didn't shut up about it for a really long time! Haha!)
For both of the pages, I used the totally adorable Mark's Finest Paper's Zoo Friends Stamp set. Love this set! I think it's perfect for pretty much anything kid or birthday related, and it has a cuteness factor that's WAY up there!
I also used some K & Co. stickers and some new paper that I got from a garage sale last weekend. It's "mystery paper" because it seemed older and has no UPC or packaging or identifying marks on it!
I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge! You have until next Wednesday at 8 pm EST to link up.
