It's time for the weekly Mark's Finest Papers SpeedyTV scrapbook challenge! This week we're doing another one of our favorite "Anything Goes" challenges.  You can create whatever type of layout you want, the only requirement is that you must use stamp(s) on your page.  

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 am happy to say that we finally reached our destination on our 2012 summer vacation family road trip...California!  I have been working this vacation album for over a year. One album has turned into two and I still have tons of photos that I want to scrap.  On my layout, I used stamps from the new MFP Calendar stamp set, part of the November release.  This is a great set for scrapbookers as we always need to put a date somewhere on our page.

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 #41  and mention the MFPSpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge in your blog post. You have until 9:00 pm on Wednesday November 20th to submit your layouts.

I am also sharing this at Word Art Wednesday Challenge # 106 - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings to you!
