Mark's Finest Paper Scrapbook Challenge


Happy Thursday!  Welcome to another edition of Mark's Finest Paper's Scrapbook Challenge.  This week is an easy one...ANYTHING GOES!!


Here's the adorable stamp you could win this week...

Remember, this challenge is strictly scrapbook layouts, no cards please, and you have to use stamps on your layouts. They don't have to be Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamps but if you do use them you will be entered twice for a chance to win. 


This week turned out to be quite a big challenge for me.  The "anything goes" theme is usually pretty easy, but I had a Christmas themed paper collection I won a while back and have been waiting to use.  I pulled out some Christmas photos and put them up against the paper, and they looked terrible.  The paper has a very vintage feel to it, and very muted colors.  I'm a "bright color" girl and apparently, even my photos reflect that.  I couldn't find ANY current Christmas photos that would work.

So...I dug back...WAY back to 1986 and found some photos of my daughter's first Christmas (she's about to turn 27 next month!) and some of the muted tones of the old photos worked with the vintage papers.  Voila!  


I used an awesome new stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers called You Are An Angel.  It's just been released and I couldn't wait to play with it!


I love the detail in the picture stamps...the musical instruments are SO intricate!!


We would love to have you join us for the ANYTHING GOES challenge this week.  You have until next Wednesday at 8 pm EST to link up your scrapbook layout.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
