Hello, hello! Welcome back to Lasting Memories! We hope that you are having a good weekend!

I can't believe that we are already in November! The new month means a new theme and a new set of challenges. This month's theme is a favorite around here - we will be focusing on using patterned paper and our first challenge is:

LM #471 -  Polka Dots - Use a polka dot patterned paper on your layout

That's it! We want to see polka dot patterned paper on your layout. Here's a look at the beautiful creations from the design team - starting with our guest designers:

November GDT - Deanne

November GDT - Rona
I used Vicki Boutin wildflowers and honey and kaleidoscope. I used watercolor to color the molding paste and applied it through a dots stencil then watered down the mixture to add lots of splatters. I also painted some old Heidi Swapp elements with the mixture in each color which dried a shade lighter. 



And our talented Design Team:

Deanna

Connie

Introducing Our November Guest Designers


Hello, everyone! It is the start of a new month and we are all set to bring you a new theme and a new set of challenges starting tomorrow. Today we want to introduce to our November Guest Designers. We have a talented group of scrappers joining us this month.  Please help us welcome Deanne, Rona, Barbara, and Jill:

November GDT - Deanne

My name is Deanne Clarke-Saunders. My hubby and I live in Paradise,
Newfoundland Canada. I was an elementary teacher for 23 years but retired

early. I am now an Early Childhood Educator (couldn’t stay away from the

kiddies!!). I have always enjoyed playing with paper, scissors, glue, and
ESPECIALLY crayons and pencil crayons, ever since I’ve been a small child. I
just couldn’t stop playing, so I continued by scrapbooking and card-making!
I love it!!! My hubby calls me a paper hoarder. He just MAY be right, but I’d
never tell him that!!! A man doesn’t need to know he’s right!!! haha!  

November GDT - Rona


 Hi, I am Rona and I have been scrapbooking for about 23 years and crafting probably for as long as I can remember. I am currently scrapbooking my two grandsons, who I keep during the day. In September I completed 19 layouts, which is definitely a record for me and even submitted one for publication! I love being inspired by challenges and am honored to be a guest designer here at Lasting Memories. 

November GDT - Barbara


I’m Barbara Greenberg from Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, and I am Scrap-A-Holic for the past 11 years. I call this hobby/habit the best non-paying job ever.
I get up in the morning get my cup of coffee and come into my office/scrap room
and I’m ready to go for the full day. I first go through all my e-mail from all
my online scrappy friends I’ve made over the years and in different groups &
then I go to my blog
www.barbgreenberg.blogspot.com and check out my challenge blogs page I created and see what new sketches or challenge
inspiration might be posted for the day. I hope you might check out
my blog and become a new follower.

Between my husband and I we have 4 kids and 8 grandkids and they
keep me busy with so many fun pictures of them to scrap. I also love
to travel, whether somewhere fun to see 2 hours away or across country,
road trips are the best so I love travel layouts. Then there are the holidays, I love scrapping those too. Well like I said, I’m a scrap-a-holic,
I love scrapping everything.

I love challenges and that is why I am here today. I was asked to be
a Guest Designer in November at “Lasting Memories.

November GDT - Jill

I live in Somerset, Pennsylvania with my husband, our 20 year old daughter and 11 year old son. I am a high school teacher and use scrapbooking as my creative outlet. I have been crafting since I was a child, but in 2003 I fell in love with scrapbooking and it has become my favorite hobby. Of course my family photos are always my inspiration for my layouts. In 2010 I started a blog and love participating in all the fun challenges! Thank you Lasting Memories for having me as Guest Designer. It is a big honor for me!

We will be back tomorrow for our first challenge for November!
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!

LM #470 - Mixed Bag - Anything Goes with a Fall or Halloween Theme

Good Sunday morning! It's the last weekend of October - can you believe it?! This month has gone by pretty fast. Next week we will be bringing you a new theme and a new set of challenges!

Before we get to our last challenge of the month I wanted to let you all know that starting in November we will be posting regularly to our Facebook page. We will be posting links to our weekly blog challenges, we will be featuring some of the beautiful entries from you - our talented readers - and any announcements, like design team calls, etc. that we have. So be sure to like our page to keep up with what's going on at Lasting Memories. Here's the link -  https://www.facebook.com/Lastingmemoriescb/

Now, we want to say a big thank you to our October Guest Designers, Lori K and Rainny! They have both shared such beautiful inspiration with us all month long! Thank you, Lori and Rainny for being our guest designers in October!

Here's the final challenge of October...our theme for this month has been "Mixed Bag" meaning our challenges have been a little bit of everything! Our last challenge of the month is:

LM #470 - Anything Goes with a Fall or Halloween theme.

We know that not everyone celebrates Halloween and our friends in the Southern Hemisphere are more in spring mode than fall, so feel free to create a fall or Halloween themed layout OR use colors associated with fall or Halloween on a layout of anything, so think red, yellow, orange, brown, green for fall, and purple, yellow, orange, lime green, etc.

Here's a look at the design team creations - starting with our guest designers:
