LM #510 - Special Events - Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, 4th of July, Canada Day

Hello, everyone! Good Sunday morning to you all! I hope that you are having a good weekend.

It's time for the second challenge of the month. As a reminder, this month our theme is -  Scrapping Special Events - and this week's challenge is:

 LM #510 - Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, 4th of July or Canada Day

Create a layout about Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, 4th of July, or for our Canadian friends - Canada Day - the choice is all yours.

Here is a look at what the design team has created, starting with our guest designer:

I chose Mother's Day, one of my favorite holidays of the year. Not only do I have the most amazing mother, but I became a mother 8 years ago and it has been the most amazing journey of my life. My daughter has taught me things I never could have imagined and added such love and laughter to my life! For this layout, I used paper from ScrapbookCustoms.com, die-cuts from Paper Wizard, bling from Want2Scrap and Recollections, a journaling block from BasicGray, mini word stickers from MyMindsEye, and misc. frame and sentiment stickers from my stash. I included the card from my hubby in the pocket on the right. It's super easy to play along!


And here are the beautiful creations from the rest of the design team:

Toni

Introducing our August Guest Designer

Happy Saturday! Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to enter our July challenges. The deadline to enter is tonight at 6 PM EST.

Today we are pleased to introduce our August Guest Designer, Jessica Navarro:

August GDT - Jessica


Hi, my name is Jessica Navarro and I'm super excited to be a Guest Designer at Lasting Memories this month! I'm an SVP/Electrical Engineer at an amazing firm designing hospitals by day and a wife/mother by night. I've been married to a wonderful man for over 11 years that completely supports my craft obsession. He even encourages me to purchase crafty supplies - stay back, he's mine! I'm a mommy to a super intelligent and spunky 8 year old, who is officially the most photographed child in the world; seriously, it's a documented fact. I've been scrapbooking for over 25 years and I love using challenge sites, like Lasting Memories, to push my creative limits and to use more of my overflowing stash. Come check out more of my crafty layouts on my blog at scraplifterdesigns.blogspot.com.

We are so excited to have Jessica joining us for August! Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new theme and the start of a new set of challenges!

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