Just Beachy

Hello friends!! First, I want to take a moment and wish all my US friends a very safe and happy Thanksgiving!! Here in Ontario, we had Thanksgiving in October and it's a very important holiday for me. It's always nice to just stop and take a moment to reflect on what we're most thankful for and to realize just how blessed we are. 

I wanted to share a layout with you that I put together for another challenge that was to show something we're thankful for. I did this in My Memories Suite digital software (check out my OWN custom background!!) and  it's from a recent family trip to Florida for which I am so thankful we were able to go and just get back to what's important - family. This also works with our photo inspiration challenge this week as well. 

Just a reminder, we have an awesome challenge going on this week with a giveaway as well!! You have 2 chances to win .. hop over to our current challenge to get all the details and look forward to seeing what you create this week!!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful safe and happy Thanksgiving!!
Karen and The Lasting Memories Team

I just wanted to thank those of you who sent cards for Izzy. I'll get those in the mail this week. Thank you so very much. I know it will mean a lot to Evanna.

Another thank you to Michele for keeping the challenges running here and to my DT for all their dedication and hard work! You guys are awesome!!! I haven't had a chance to comment, but I did glance quickly each Sunday and you rocked all the challenges!!
