Our "Scrappy" Friends!

Welcome!

Hello fellow scrapbookers!!! Welcome to "Lasting Memories" which is all about LAYOUTS!! Yes, JUST layouts! There are no cards allowed here. We have weekly themed challenges, but you have the whole month to get in on the fun! Our challenges begin each Sunday at 8am EST and all 4 challenges will end on the date listed on the sidebar at 6pm EST. At month's end, we will choose a GDT to join us for a month!

Specialized Hosting Sites

A lot of crafters use specialized hosting sites that not all of us have access to. We just wanted to let you know that if we don't comment, it's because we don't have access - but we see your work here at LM and appreciate your taking the time to link up and show off your style!!

LM #704 - My Favorite Things - Favorite Sketch

Good morning, and welcome to another month of challenges here at Lasting Memories. First up, we have an announcement: a new scrapbooker is joining our design team. Please welcome Lisa Carlson, who has been a guest designer for us a couple of times and has graciously consented to inspire us on a regular basis with her creativity. Welcome to the team, Lisa!

This is design team member Jill, and I thought it would be fun to focus on a few of our favorite things this month.

LM #704 - A Favorite Sketch - Maybe try a new favorite or the one you always look to for inspiration.

Here are the wonderful layouts from the design team:

Lisa


I love to create sketches, so picking just one is challenging, but here is one I have used multiple times.


 I used Cheryl Even's sketch. Loved it!

I picked a recent sketch I designed for Stick it Down. I love how simple this concept is, but with a little mixed media and layers of embellishments, the layout looks so much more complex!
