MFP Scrapbook Challenge #19

It's time for a new scrapbook challenge on Mark's Finest Papers SpeedyTV.  We have a great challenge this week so I hope you'll play along.
This week's challenge is a color challenge with a twist.  Your challenge is to create a monochromatic layout using a color family of your choice.  The twist is that you must also use black and white.  Your layout can be about anything you want, just be sure to use stamps somewhere on your page.

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 receive an additional entry for a chance to win our weekly stamp prize for June ... 

My grandmother had several pictures of some Boy Scouts in her album that were taken in the late 50's. The faces are a little faded, but I think one of the boys is my mother's youngest brother who was very active in the scouts.  My grandmother was a Den Mother and she really enjoyed working with the boys.

I used a sentiment stamp from the MFP In Tents stamp set.  I think the stamp sums up some of the Boy Scouts' favorite activities and I love the variety of fonts used on the wording.

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge! To be eligible to win the June stamp be sure to link your page to MFP SpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge #19 and mention the MFPSpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge in your blog post. Please do not submit any back linked layouts. You have until 9:00 pm on Wednesday June 19th to submit your layouts.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings to you!
