LM #424 - Holiday Traditions - Old Time Photo

Hello, everyone! Happy December! Can you believe this year is almost over? Be on the lookout for winners post this week for October and November challenges.

A new month means a new theme and a new set of challenges, but before we get to that, we have a new Guest Designer to introduce. Please give a warm welcome to our December Guest Designer, Jill Rugg:


I live in Somerset, Pennsylvania with my husband, our 20 year old daughter and 11 year old son. I am a high school mathematics teacher and use scrapbooking as my creative outlet. I have been crafting since I was a child, but in 2003 I fell in love with scrapbooking and it has become my favorite hobby. Of course, my family photos are always my inspiration for my layouts. In 2010 I started a blog and love participating in all the fun challenges! Thank you Lasting Memories for having me as Guest Designer. It is a big honor for me!

You can see Jill's beautiful work on her blog - Just Jill.

Now, on to the challenge. For December, DT Lauren is our hostess and she has created some great challenges for us. Our theme is - Holiday Traditions - and our first challenge is:

LM #424 - Old Time Photo - create a layout with a photo from the holidays when you were a child.

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

Here we have 1990ish and 1994! I have been meaning to tell this story, and I am so happy this prompt made me finally do it!

Lauren
I used old K&Co Papers to document Christmas 1992.  I was 9 years old and REALLY into American girl dolls at that time!

Today we are bringing you our last challenge of the month and we want to say a big "Thank You" to our guest designer, Cheryl. It has been a pleasure working with Cheryl and seeing her beautiful layouts every week.

For November our theme has been - Techniques - and this week's challenge is:

LM #423 - Mixed Media - use 2 different types on your layout.
