It's time for our second challenge for September. Our theme for this month is - Wonders of the World - and this week we are visiting England/UK.

 England and the UK are filled with history and traditions. The love and loyalty to their Royal Family are based on Faith and Culture. So this week's challenge is:

 LM #514 - Create a layout with a throwback family theme. Something the symbolizes history to you and your family.

Maybe it's the King / Queen in your life or the Prince / Princess that makes you smile every day. Or maybe there is a special family Matriarch that has passed that you would like to remember and pay tribute to you.

LM #513 - Wonders of the World

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Lasting Memories! We are so excited that you are here today because it is the start of a brand new theme and a brand new set of challenges for September.

For the month of September, DT member Toni will be providing our theme and challenges. Our theme for September is - Wonders of the World - and here is what Toni has to say about it:

"This month we would like to celebrate the wonders of the world and celebrate different cultures. Unfortunately, there is no traveling anywhere in the world at the moment, so let's take a crafting journey around the globe instead."

Here is our first fun challenge:


LM #513 To begin our challenges this month we will have an easy one. We want to see layering of words. Title + Sub Title + Journaling. Plus we would like to see the word TRAVEL within the Title or Sub Title.  (journaling can be hidden if you'd like, just let us know where it is) 

Here are the beautiful creations from the design team for your inspiration:

LM #512 - Special Events - Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa

Hello, hello! Good Sunday morning to you all! I hope you are having a good weekend. Today we are sharing our last challenge of the month. Before we get to that I want to say a big thank you to our guest designer this month, Jessica! I have loved seeing her beautiful layouts each and every week. Thank you, Jessica!

And we have some exciting news - we have two new design team members joining us! You may recognize Maureen and Tracey as they were our guest designers in July. Tracey will be joining in on today's challenge and Maureen will be joining us in September. We are thrilled to have them both joining us here at Lasting Memories!

Now, on to today's challenge. Our theme for August has been - Scrapping Special Events - and this week we will be working on this special event:

LM #512 - Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa

Here is a look at the wonderful design team creations, starting with our guest designer:

August GDT - Jessica
Here is my take on LM #512: I chose Christmas and delivery of Christmas cheer to my office. Every year we make yummies to share with my co-workers. Maddie was so excited to dress up in her Elf Jammies for the delivery. She ended up getting candy from about half of the people we delivered to. For this layout, I used paper from Paper Pizazz, die-cuts from My Mind's Eye, tag from Scrap Your Trip, chipboard Scrapmatts painted with gold paint from Folk Art, 3D stickers from Jolee's Boutique, letters from Cocoa Daisy and BasicGrey, stamps and ink from CTMH, and twine from The Twinery. I've really enjoyed being a Guest Designer this month and look forward to seeing all your creations!

LM #511 - Special Events - Back To School, Halloween, Thanksgiving

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Lasting Memories! We are so happy that you have stopped by today. Today we are ready to share our third challenge of the month with you!

As a reminder our theme for August is - Scrapping Special Events - and this week our challenge is:

 LM #511 -Back to School, Halloween, Thanksgiving

Create a layout about one of these fall-time events.

Here is a look at the design team creations, starting with our guest designer, Jessica:

 I chose Back to School, the first day of dear daughter’s 3's class. She was so excited to go to school every day and loved playing with all her friends. It was a Mother's Day out program, but was perfect to give her the socialization she craved. For this layout, I used paper from ScrapbookCustoms.com, die-cuts from Paper Wizard, tags from Paperie, flag clips from Studio Calico, 3D stickers from K&Company, letters from cocoadaisy, thickers from American Crafts, an arrow sticker from Mrs. Grossman's, a journaling block, stamps and ink from CTMH, and misc. ribbon from my stash. I used my typewriter from WeRMemoryKeepers to give it that "school" look. I hope you play along with us this week!


 And the beautiful creations from the rest of the design team:

LM #510 - Special Events - Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, 4th of July, Canada Day

Hello, everyone! Good Sunday morning to you all! I hope that you are having a good weekend.

It's time for the second challenge of the month. As a reminder, this month our theme is -  Scrapping Special Events - and this week's challenge is:

 LM #510 - Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, 4th of July or Canada Day

Create a layout about Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, 4th of July, or for our Canadian friends - Canada Day - the choice is all yours.

Here is a look at what the design team has created, starting with our guest designer:

I chose Mother's Day, one of my favorite holidays of the year. Not only do I have the most amazing mother, but I became a mother 8 years ago and it has been the most amazing journey of my life. My daughter has taught me things I never could have imagined and added such love and laughter to my life! For this layout, I used paper from ScrapbookCustoms.com, die-cuts from Paper Wizard, bling from Want2Scrap and Recollections, a journaling block from BasicGray, mini word stickers from MyMindsEye, and misc. frame and sentiment stickers from my stash. I included the card from my hubby in the pocket on the right. It's super easy to play along!


And here are the beautiful creations from the rest of the design team:
