MFP Scrapbook Challenge #3

It's time for a new scrapbook challenge over at MFP SpeedyTV.   This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. Your challenge is to create a layout based on the following sketch by Pagemaps.

Your layout doesn't have to be an exact copy of the sketch.  Feel free to rotate it, add or delete elements, just use the sketch as a guide to spark your imagination.  Remember this challenge is strictly scrapbook layouts, no cards please, and you have to use stamps on your layouts.  You can use any stamps you'd like, but if you use Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamps you will be entered twice for a chance to win this fabulous stamp set...

For my layout I used photos from my grandmother's album.  Once again,  I don't know who these women are, but I love looking at them and imagining what their life must have been like in the 1930's and 40's. I stamped the  flower and hummingbird image in black and  decided not to color it in. Since my patterned paper is black and teal I thought the black image stamped on the teal cardstock coordinated nicely.  I may go back and add some Stickles for a little sparkle.

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge!  Be sure to link your page to MFP SpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge #3 and mention SpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge and Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co in your blog post.  Please do not submit any back linked layouts.  You have until 9:00 pm on Wednesday February 27th to submit your layouts.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Blessings!
