Christmas 1961

It's time for the weekly Mark's Finest Papers SpeedyTV  scrapbook challenge!  This week's challenge is Christmas in October.  Your challenge is to create a Christmas themed layout.  It can be about anything Christmassy,  and you must use a stamp(s) somewhere on your layout.

You can use any type of stamps you wish, but if you use Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamps, you will be entered twice for a chance to win our weekly stamp image. From now until the end of the year, there will be a different stamp  awarded each week.  So be sure to enter every week to have a chance of adding several of these wonderful images to your stamp collection.  We start our weekly challenge every Thursday so be sure to stop by.

Check out the Scrapbook Challenge post on MFPSpeedyTV to view this week's stamp prize.

For today's layout I used a photo of me and my Dad on Christmas Day, 1961.  The photo isn't in the traditional shape of photos back then because I scanned it from a slide and printed it out in 4x6.  I used stamps from the MFP Holiday Tag and Presents stamp sets.

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge! To be eligible to win be sure to link your page to MFPSpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge #37  and mention the MFPSpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge in your blog post. You have until 9:00 pm on Wednesday October 23rd to submit your layouts.

I am  also sharing this layout at Word Art Wednesday Challenge #102 - Anything Goes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings to you!
