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!!

Last week we did our "Naked Layouts" challenge and boy, did we have some amazing entries and so much creativity and thought!! One of my DT members, Michele, came up with this cool idea that really inspired me AND inspired her as well as she emailed Denise and I with a GREAT idea!!

Starting today, we'll be adding a new MONTHLY challenge to run here at Lasting Memories! Don't worry!! Our weekly challenge will not be affected at all. In a nutshell, we'll be running TWO challenges here at LM .. one weekly and one monthly.
