LM #611 - 3 Things - Week 2

 Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Lasting Memories - we are so happy that you have stopped by today! If you missed our May, June, and July winners post on Friday then you missed the announcement that starting with our September challenges we will no longer be offering up a prize each month. I've been providing the prizes out of my own pocket for quite some time and with the prices of everything going up, I can no longer do so. However, the chance to be our guest designer for an upcoming month will still be offered every month. Thank you all for understanding.

Now, on to this week's challenge. Our theme for August is - 3 Things - and each week you will be given a list of three items that you must use on your layout. How much or how little of each item that you use is up to you. You can also use other items that are not on the list but you must include the required 3 things. This week's challenge is:

LM #611 - Icon/Geometric patterned paper, circles, and stickers

For the icon paper - think rainbows, unicorns, ice cream cones, etc. on the paper. Circles can be anything circular - a circular die-cut piece,  chipboard piece, sticker, brads, enamel dots, etc. 

Here are the beautiful layouts from the design team:

Such beautiful and fun inspiration from the design team! Now it's your turn - link up your layouts to the linky below by Saturday, August 27th at 6 PM Eastern Time for a 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 your choice:

LM #607 - Opposites Attract - New and Old

Hello, hello! Welcome back to Lasting Memories. We are so happy that you have stopped by today! July is moving right along and it is time for a new challenge.

For July our theme is "Opposites Attract" and it's all about including opposites on your layout. This week DT member Tracey is challenging us to use something new and something old on our layouts.

LM #607 - Create a layout with new and old. It might be a newborn with an older relative or comparing an old look with a new one or using both old and new products. 

Here are the wonderful layouts from the design team, starting with our guest designers:

July GDT - Jill

For something old I used my creative memories cutting system (that I bought in 2008)-to cut and mat my photos. For something new, I included pictures of the newest member of our family-my grandson.

July GDT - Jessica

I used Heidi Swapp's new Sun Chaser collection with old embellishments.


July GDT - Jamie

I used paper from a new collection kit from Echo Park called Summertime and all of my embellishments are older from my stash.



For my new, it’s the first time my son presided over the court of honor as a senior patrol leader and the old is all of the uniforms hanging behind the boys.  The shirts are the scoutmaster and assistant scoutmasters from when they were boys.


And the wonderful layouts from the design team:

Deanna

I used then and now photos of sweet grandson Brady. 


Tracey

I used a photo of my son (new to reading) and his grandfather


Sandy

I used now and then photos of my grandsons in the pool!




So much beautiful inspiration to get you started! Now it is your turn - link up your layouts to the linky below by Saturday, July 30th at 6 PM Eastern Time for a 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:
