LM #405 - All About Me - YOU Are My Favorite

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope that you are having a good weekend!

We are back today with our last challenge of the month. Before we get to the challenge we want to say a big thank you to our Guest Designer for July - Marina. I know I have enjoyed seeing Marina's beautiful layouts each week this month!

Our theme for July has been - All About Me - and our last challenge for the month is:

LM #405 - YOU are my favorite

Create a layout documenting one - or many - of your favorite things and journal your WHY. You can do a layout listing your favorites in multiple categories - book, movie, food, location, drink, tv show, etc; or, you can focus on one favorite that deserves it's own entire layout. Maybe the world needs to know why scrapbooking is your favorite hobby!? Tell us about you, friend.

Here is a look at what the design team has created, starting with our Guest Designer - Marina

LM #404 - All About Me - Throwback to Your Glory Days

Hello, hello! Good Sunday morning/afternoon/evening to you! I hope you are having a good weekend.

We are back today with our third challenge of the month. Our theme for July has been - All About Me - and this week our challenge is:

LM #404 - Throwback to Your Glory Days

Create a layout documenting a photo and/or story from the past. You may have a story that doesn't have an accompanying photo - no problem! Find a stock photo online of something to do with the memory, or set up a staged photo to represent the story. You can dig out the archives and scrap those baby pics of yourself, too! Document an old memory you've been meaning to record.

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

July GDT - Marina


Denise
I took a picture from the past. On this a was ca. 2 years old and we lived in Luxemburg. I watered the flowers on our balcony.

Deanna
I found this Christmas family photo from long ago. I'm the little one in the rocking chair. I remember each Christmas I would get a new little baby doll.

I also choose to do a photo from my childhood. I believe that this was Christmas and I would be 
2 years old


Natalie
I came across this Prom photo of my husband and me, and if those weren't the glory days, I don't know what were! Our 10 year wedding anniversary is coming up this fall, so I figure that was a perfect time to scrap about how we attended our Senior Prom together & the rest became our history.



Lauren
I have been meaning to scrapbook this for a while, since I bought this phone die cut with this photo in mind.  This photo was taken on Christmas morning when I was 14 months old.  I received the Fisher Price Phone from Santa.



We can't wait to see what you create! Be sure to link up your layouts by Saturday, July 28th, for your chance to be our guest designer and a chance at this month's prize!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!

LM #403 - All About Me - Document Your JOB

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

We are back with our second challenge of the month. Our theme for July is - All About Me - and this week our challenge is:

LM #403 - Document your JOB

Often we don't document the everyday parts of our lives, but our jobs are surely a huge portion of our being. Create a layout about your current job, a past job, your everyday tasks/chores that may not pay but are certainly a job, or even about a dream job you may never have had or yet have. Tell your career stories!

Here is a look at what the design team has created, starting with our Guest Designer, Marina:

LM #402 - All About Me - Love Your Selfie

Hello and Happy July 1st! Can you believe we are already halfway through 2018?!

Not only do we have a new theme and a new set of challenges for you today, but we have a new Guest Designer to introduce. Please help me welcome Marina as our guest designer for July!


I’m Marina. I love scrapbooking, card-making and entering challenges. I work in a college in London. I live with my partner and 11 year old son and I have a grown-up daughter and grandsons ages 13 and 7. My blog is  https://myperfectlifeuk.blogspot.com/. I’m delighted to be guest designer at Lasting Memories this month.

Now, on to the new theme and challenge. Our theme for July is "All About Me" and our first challenge is:

#402 - Love Your Selfie

Some of you may be comfortable taking selfies, others may not be, but do it anyway! We want to see your beautiful face on a layout. Please scrapbook a photo of yourself and tell a story about YOU. Journal about your hopes and dreams, a funny memory, anything that pops to mind that you believe a future scrapbook reader would LOVE to know about the caring person who created your scrapbook.

Here is a look at what the design team has created - starting with our Guest Designer:

A layout about getting my first perm a few months ago



I don't like taking Selfies. But during our last trip to England, I took some of me and my daughters. 😊

Deanna
I'm not a big 'selfie' taker. DH always takes them of us.
Had to take this one recently. LOL

I'm not a fan of taking selfies, either, but I figure if I want to be in my scrapbooks, then I'd better take a few now and then!

I love seeing all of these beautiful faces this week! Why don't you join us? We would love to see what you create!

Be sure to link up your layouts by Saturday, July 28th for a chance to be a guest designer and for a chance at this month's prize. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!
