Irena Johnson

It's time for the weekly Mark's Finest Papers SpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge!  This week's challenge is all about stamped sentiments.  Your challenge is to create a layout about anything you want and use at least one stamped sentiment 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.  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.

The photos on my layout are of my maternal grandfather's sister, Irena Johnson.   When I first saw these photos,  I realized that I don't know anything about my grandfather's family.  I do know that my mom was researching her genealogy in the years before she passed. I will have to look through her papers and see what I can learn about my grandfather.

I used 2 sentiment stamps from the MFP In My Den  stamp set on the tag on my layout.

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 #40  and mention the MFPSpeedyTV Scrapbook Challenge in your blog post. You have until 9:00 pm on Wednesday November 13th to submit your layouts.

I am also sharing this at Word Art Wednesday Challenge # 105 - Anything Goes
