Anything Goes Scrapbook Challenge!


Happy Thursday!  Only one more day til the weekend!  Woohoo!  I always look so forward to the weekends so I can hang out with my adorably sweet hubby!  Even if we don't do anything particular, it's still so special.  I'm SO sappy when it comes to him!  Ha ha.

To hold us over until the weekend gets here, it's time for another Scrapbook Challenge over at MFP Speedy TV.  This week is one of my favorite challenges...Anything Goes!  And as an extra treat, all the DT members will be using new release stamps this week!


Remember this challenge is strictly scrapbook layouts, no cards please.  You have to use stamps on your pages. 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.  And here's the super-cute stamp you could possibly win this week!



Here's my offering for this week.  Back in 2007 My daughter and I went on a trip to the east coast to check out a university she was considering doing her graduate work at.  Well, we just HAD to go hang out in New York City for a few days!  And of course, HAD to experience the subway!  It was definitely interesting, and just one of those things that we can say we've done!


I used photos of my sweet daughter and our good friend Sarah.  They're such posers!  Ha ha!


I used some paper from a DCWV Autumn stack that I've had in my stash for a while  They had several different coordinating patterns so I decided to mix and match.  I also went a little nuts with the embellishments, so the layout is busy, but I love the way it turned out.  I dug into my stash of Smash*book goodies to find some stickers and journaling cards to kind of set things off.


Now...as I've already mentioned, you must use a stamp to enter the challenge, and I've used a new one from Mark's Finest Papers.  Can you see it?  Look closer!


I used the awesome new set called Pocket Watches.  I actually had some Mango Mai Tai Quick Quotes Chalking ink that matched my background paper beautifully.  I used the HUGE image from the Pocket Watches set and just stamped it over and over on the paper to make my own custom-made background!  I LOVE the way it came out!  I've included a pic of what the stamp set looks like, so you can hopefully see the image a little better on the paper.  I wish you could see it in person...it's gorgeous!


I hope you'll consider joining us this week!  You have until next Wednesday evening at 8 pm EST to link up. See you there!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
