 Hello, hello! Welcome back to Lasting Memories! I hope you are having a good weekend! The first day of fall, here in the Northern Hemisphere, is Wednesday, September 22 - is it starting to feel like fall where you are - or is it still feeling like summer? Here in the middle of the US, we are still having some hot temperatures but by Wednesday we are supposed to be seeing highs in the 70s and lows in the low 50s. That will be feeling a little more like fall!

It's time for our 4th challenge of the month. As a reminder - our theme for September is 'Patterned Paper Play' and each week we give you a  pattern that you must use on your layout. How much of each pattern you use is up to you - use a little or use a lot! Here's this week's challenge:

Introducing September's Guest Designer!!

 Hello, hello! Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. 

Today we are excited to introduce our guest designer for September. Please help us welcome the talented Karen B! I love Karen's style and I know she will be sharing beautiful inspiration with us each week in September.

September GDT - Karen B


Thank you for inviting me to be a guest designer at Lasting Memories this month.
About me:  I'm married with an adult daughter, and I work full-time.  We live on 14 acres in a semi-rural area in Southeast Queensland, Australia - with eucalyptus trees, koalas, kangaroos, native birds, chickens, and a dog. When not "safe at home" I enjoy country drives, hiking and camping, and visiting local markets and cafes.  I've been scrapbooking for around 20 years, and I still love traditional layouts best of all.  Fun trivia piece - I was on the LM design team back in 2014!  I've dabbled in all kinds of techniques and styles, and I enjoy trying new things, but my go-to, happy-place style is simple and linear.  On most of my layouts you'll see simple colour combos, old stash (!) with personal touches such as machine stitching, doodling or fussy cutting.  I'd love you to pop in to my blog - beingkaren@blogspot.com 

Welcome, Karen! We are so happy that you are joining us in September!

Be sure to stop back in tomorrow for our new theme and a new set of challenges for September. We will be playing with our patterned paper this month and we hope you will join us!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
