Mark's Finest Papers Color Challenge 3

Merry Christmas!  I just got back after spending several wonderful days celebrating Christmas with my family at my brother's home.  It is such a blessing to be able to spend holidays with family.  I didn't take tons of photos like I used to as the kids are all teenagers now and there are no toys to play with, but I do have some photos that I will share with you on layouts sometime soon.

But for now it's time for a new MFP SpeedyTV Color Challenge.  This challenge  is open to all types of papercrafts, including scrapbook pages. Each week we have a color or colors that you have to incorporate in your project. and you must use stamp(s) on the project.  This week's challenge colors are Purple and Gold.

For my layout I used a photo of our good friends at their 50th wedding anniversary celebration.  They renewed their vows and the colors were purple and gold so this photo was perfect for today's challenge.  I framed the page and gave it to them for Christmas.  I used the "Blessings" stamp from the MFP Lots of Words set.

The guidelines for the color challenge are simple:
1. Use the challenge colors as your main colors.  You can use any shades or hues of the challenge colors.
2. You can add any neutral colors (browns, grays, white, cream, kraft etc.) that you wish.
3. You can use an accent color in addition to the challenge colors, but it must be an accent only and not one of the main colors.
4. You must use stamps on your project.

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 prize.   We start our weekly challenge every Thursday, and there's a new stamp prize each week so be sure to stop back by.

This week, one blessed winner will receive our Small Magnolia stamp...

I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge.  To be eligible to win, be sure to link your project to MFP SpeedyTV Color Challenge 3 and mention the MFPSpeedyTV Color Challenge  in your blog post. If you use MFP stamps on your project please note that in your post as well. You have until 9:00 pm on Wednesday January 1st to link up your project.

  5. Gemiel,
    As you know you have been the one constant page maker in my life and that has encouraged me. The layout with the floral bouquet at their feet shows that in serving one another we can do it. Thank you for sharing this beautiful creation with us at Word Art Wednesday. I want to extend Multiplied Blessings including Peace, Prosperity and Health to your whole household in 2014.
