Racing Scrapbook Layout



Happy Thursday!  And you know what that means...only one more day til the weekend!  Woot!  It's time for another Scrapbook Challenge over at Mark's Finest Paper's MFP Speedy TV.  This week is a color challenge - create a monochromatic layout using a color family of your choice plus black and white.


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. Below, is a photo of the adorable stamp you could win this week.

I love the old pickup truck.  We used to have one like it years ago that was bright yellow!


In honor of Father's Day coming up on Sunday, I decided to do a layout using photos from last Father's Day.  Our daughter and her boyfriend took sweet hubby out to a go cart racing track for his day!  He's a car guy and a huge racing fan, so needless to say, he had a blast!  

Since the layout was about racing, I decided to give the background a checkered flag feeling.  I found a file in the Silhouette Store called "checkerboard template/background," and I made it large enough to almost cover a 12 x 12 inch page.  I cut it out in black and placed it over a white piece of cardstock.  Then I cut out a car in red, matted everything else in red, and the page went together by itself!  


I used two sentiments from the MFP - I Need A Vacation stamp set that just came out this week.  This is the same set I previewed last week.  I really love it and see myself using it LOTS, so get ready!!  Ha ha!

Remember, you have until next Wednesday at 8 pm EST to link up your layout.  See you there!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

This page is really so sweet. I must try to find some checker flag paper. My son raced locally. I would love to do a page with his car. Great layout and colors.
