Our "Scrappy" Friends!


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! Only one entry per challenge, and no back-linking is allowed since we would love to know that we "challenged" you. We look forward to challenging you and helping you get your pages completed!

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!!

Challenge #44 - Scrapbook Pages That Recycle

Good morning friends!! Thank you for joining us last week!! This week we have some exciting news! We have a Guest DT joining us! Please help us welcome Brenda Rose ...

Here's what Brenda has to say about herself:
"Hello! I am so excited to be joining Lasting Memories as a guest design team member! My husband and I live in Minnesota in a northern suburb of the Twin Cities and will celebrate our 21st anniversary this summer. We have one grown son, so we are empty nesters now. I have been scrapping for about 21 years and have really watched the industry grow and change. I am a Close To My Heart consultant and very simply love it! Teaching scrapping to others is my passion, and I love that part of being a consultant. I have been blogging for almost three years, so I’d love to have you come and visit me at Rose Blossom Legacies. If I am not in my craft room, you’ll find me spending time with my family and pets. I am also an avid reader, and review books for a couple of sites. So my Kindle gets very good use! I look forward to working with this team and getting to know all of you through your artwork!"

Welcome Brenda! We look forward to working with you!! So now on to this weeks challenge!! We'd like to see you "recycle" on your LO's. What are we talking about you ask??? Recycle some ribbon, scrap pieces of paper .. what about those cards you have laying around? Recycle the inserts or the card fronts! Simple as that! Scrapbooks Etc has some great ideas and we can't wait to see yours! Here's some DT creations to get your mojo movin'!!!
