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:
