LM #477 - Wacky Holidays - Roots Day

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! Welcome back to Lasting Memories - we are so happy you are here today. We hope you are all ready for the holidays!

Today is our last challenge of the month - and year! We always take the last week off to give the design team a little time off for the holidays. We will be back on December 29th to kick off the new year with a new challenge.

We also want to say a big thank you to our guest designer, Melissa. We have so enjoyed having her join us for this month's challenges.

Now, on to the last challenge of the month. The theme for December is December - Daily Holidays, Special & Wacky Days - a fun spin for this holiday season and our last challenge is:

LM #477 - Roots Day is celebrated on Dec 23 - Your challenge is to scrap an older photo of you and your family 

Celebrate your genealogy, as today is Roots Day.  It's a great day to celebrate your heritage. Many of us are returning to our roots today, as we head home for Christmas. Returning to our roots is a warm, cozy and comfortable feeling, a sense of belonging. Celebrate this day, by learning more about your family tree, and exploring your roots.

Here's a look at the design team creations, starting with our guest designer:

December GDT - Melissa

And the design team:

Toni
Unfortunately, I am unable to find any photos of myself on Christmas day. As a Mum, I'm always taking photos of my own kids. But sadly, I wasn't even able to find any photos of myself as a child either. So for this challenge, I used a throwback photo from Christmas 2010.

Denise


Connie

Deanna
This is me with my daughters and sweet little granddaughter from 2004.

Lori K
This is my very first Christmas.



Now it's your turn. Link up your layouts by Saturday, December 28th at 6:00 PM EST for your chance to be our guest designer for an upcoming month and for a chance at this month's prize - a $15 gift certificate to an online store of choice.

LM #476 - Wacky Holidays - National Poinsettia Day

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! We do hope you are having a good weekend!

Before we get to today's challenge we have a new design team member to introduce. Lori Kobular is joining the Lasting Memories Design Team! Lori was our guest designer in October and we are happy to have her join us full time. Welcome to the team, Lori!


Now, for this week's challenge. The theme for December is - December - Daily Holidays, Special & Wacky Days - a fun spin for this holiday season - and this week's challenge:

LM #476 - Team B - National Poinsettia Day is celebrated on Dec 12 - Your challenge is to use poinsettias on your layout in some form.

These beautiful flowers are a well-recognized symbol of Christmas. Poinsettia Day was officially declared by an Act of Congress. It is in honor of  Joel Roberts Poinsett, who died on December 12, 1851. Poinsett was the first Ambassador to Mexico. Poinsett brought this colorful plant back to his plantation in the U.S.  He grew the plants in his Greenville, S.C plantation and gave them out as gifts to friends.

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

 LM #475 - Team A - Mitten Tree Day is celebrated on Dec 6- Your challenge is to either scrapbook a Christmas Tree or about Mittens 

 Mitten Tree Day was likely created by a grade school teacher. It's the perfect grade school craft project or story hour. And, the timing of this holiday in early December is perfect.
