MFP Scrapbook Challenge # 22

Happy 4th of July!!  It's time for a new scrapbook challenge over at  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.  In honor of the 4th of July your challenge is to create a layout using a combination of red, white and blue and one additional color of your choice.  

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 July ... 

I found this photo of a little boy in a sailor outfit in my grandmother's album.  I don't know who he is but he was obviously someone important to her, since she had his photo neatly pasted in her book. I stretched the color challenge a bit with my patterned paper, but I just had to use it.  So my one additional color to the red, white and blue is "shades of light brown" (smile). I used stamps  from the MFP  Be Proud and USA Heroes stamp sets. 

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge! To be eligible to win the July stamp be sure to link your page to MFP SpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge #22  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 July 10th to submit your layouts.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings to you!


  1. Aww, so cute, too bad you don't know who he is. Adorable layout.

  2. Love that photo -= and the way you have mounted it makes a fa bulous page Gemiel.

  3. What a great layout! How blessed you are to have your grandmothers album.

  4. What a great design....Adorable photo!

  5. This is fantastic! What a great photo!

  6. Wonderful patriotic page, Gemiel! I suspect this was taken during the WWII years. A lot of us wore sailor suits or in my case sailor dress. This would make this little boy in his late 70s today. Maybe you can figure out where he fits in your Grandmother's family. Thanks for your lovely comments on my WAW post.
