MFP Scrapbook Challenge #18

It's time for a new scrapbook challenge over at MFP SpeedyTV !! This week's challenge is a ribbon challenge.   Short and simple...use some type of ribbon, trim, twine, lace etc. on your layout.  Your layout can be about anything you want, just be sure to use ribbon and stamps 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 ...

This week I'm using another heritage photo on my layout.   This one didn't come from my grandmother's album.  My Dad e-mailed me this photo of my Mom last week.  It was taken in Canada,  probably around 1955-58, in the early years of their marriage.  I guess my Mom was in her "tourist" attire because she has on sensible (but still fashionable) shoes.

I used some green lace trim from Webster's Pages for my challenge element.  The patterned paper is also Webster's Pages.  The sentiment stamps are a sneak peak from one of the Mark's Finest papers June release sets..."Need a Vacation".

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge! To be eligible to win the June image stamp be sure to link your page to MFP SpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge #18 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 12th to submit your layouts.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings to you!
