Mark's Finest Papers Color Challenge 5

It's time for this week's 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 Pink and Black or Brown.

My Dad is a follower of my blog and he often tells me that he really enjoys seeing what I'm doing with my mother's family heritage photos.  I know that he has heritage photos from his family, but I haven't been able to get him to part with them.  Last time he came to visit he surprized me with 2 photos and asked if I could use them for my blog.  I was so happy to get them and I'm featuring one on my layout today. The photo is of his mother and  her friends who formed  a club to make dolls to give to needy children.  They met once a month on a Thursday night to hand sew the dolls.  My grandmother is front and center in the group, 4th from the left.  My stamped image is from the MFP Huge Blooms 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 Autumn Glory Fox 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 5 and mention the MFP SpeedyTV 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 15th to link up your project.

I am also sharing this at Word Art Wednesday: Challenge 114 - Anything Goes.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Blessings to you!


  1. Oh Gemiel what a wonderful photo, and what an amazing group of women! Love how you have scrapped this.

  2. Gemiel, what a beautiful page. I always love how you match the photo up so well with the elements you use or the theme. That is so wonderful of your Dad to trust you with those photos. Photo's can so easily be copied too these days. He could do that and still keep his. I was so blessed to inherit all of my Grandfathers photos and he had my Grandmother's also. (She had passed before him.) I love the colors for this week and will have to try to enter. Sending a hug.

  3. Gemiel,
    What a testimony, we need many more Thursday night clubs. Your page is peaceful and the harmony of your layout colors, stamps and is sweet. It is delightful to see your wonderful art posted in this week’s creative challenge at Word Art Wednesday.
