I stamped quite a bit! The green paper on the left is stamped to create a leafy background, plus the title and all the trees are stamped, and I even used some masking.

Before we get to the design team inspiration we want to wish DT Deanna a very "Happy Birthday"!

LM #419- Techniques - Paper Tearing

Hello, everyone! Welcome back - we are so happy that you stopped by today! We hope that you are enjoying your weekend.

It's time for a new theme and a new set of challenges here at Lasting Memories. Before we get to all of that we would like to welcome our November Guest Designer, Cheryl!


Hi everyone! My name is Cheryl Even and I’m very excited to be a guest designer for Lasting Memories this month.  A Southern California native, I have been married to my college sweetheart Greg for 26 years and am a SAHM to four wonderful kids, Adrian, Elliot, Brianna, and Oliver Angel. I’ve been scrapbooking ever since I went to my first scrapbooking party and decided to try it for a month to see if I liked it. 20 years later, I think you could say I stuck with it and loved it! Although my life is really busy with raising four children, leading a women’s Bible study, and singing on the worship team at church, I usually find time every week to sneak away to my craft room to scrapbook, and then I post my completed work on my blog,https://evenmorescrapping.blogspot.com/.

Welcome, Cheryl! We are so excited to have you as our guest designer this month!

Now, on to the challenge. DT Deanna is our hostess this month and she has created some super fun challenges to work with. Our theme for November is - Techniques - that special little thing that puts the finishing touch on your layout. This week's challenge is:

#419 - Techniques - Paper Tearing -  I love adding a bit of texture to my work by using torn paper. This week our challenge is rather simple and easy to use - "2 or More Torn Papers". 
{You may, of course, add anything else.}

Here is a look at the fabulous layouts from the design team, starting with our November Guest Designer, Cheryl:
