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!!

LMCB #90 - Leaving Footprints Behind - DIGI DARLA Sponsoring!

Hello Everyone!!  Happy Happy weekend to you all!  
  Before we bring you the next awesome challenge, we need to tell you who our WINNER is of the $20.00 Gift Certificate from A2Z Scrapbooking!!

And the WINNER is...


Congratulations!! Please contact ELIZABETH to claim your prize!!

And of course we are not ending there!!  You all had so many wonderful and thoughtful layouts about your Mom or that Someone Special to share with us!  We love reading your stories!!  You all are making it harder and harder to choose the TOP 3 each week!!
With that said... here you go...in no particular order...

CONGRATULATIONS Ladies!  Grab your "TOP 3" badge and display proudly to all of your friends!  We hope you come back to join us again and again!!

Sooo... now on to this week's challenge!!

LMCB # 90 - Leaving Footprints Behind
This week we want to see some kind of  Footprints on your layouts!!  This could be people, animals, birds, Bigfoot (ha!... gosh I hope not).  Lots of possibilities here.

We are also being sponsored by DIGI DARLA'S!!  Woo Hoo!

The WINNER will receive their choice of ANY 5 DIGI Images!!
And a little about how DIGI DARLA'S came to be...
DigiDarla is the brain child of Kim Eskola and her daughter Emilea.
Emilea and I both enjoy creating and when the idea of creating digital stamps came up, it sounded like the most wonderful way to earn ever! There was only one problem! We are both shy and dislike the center of attention! As a way of "hiding behind the scenes" and avoiding having one spokeswoman, DigiDarla was born!
Working with Emilea on this project has been a wonderful blessing and has stretched both of us. Emilea is a busy teen with her passion for art and training our 2 horses, piano and violin lessons, and squeezing in high school classes somewhere in between! She is also the oldest daughter in a family of 11!

Here is a fun little sketch from PAGE MAPS  to help kickstart your creativity if you need... but not required for our challenge.


Can't wait to see what FOOTPRINTS you all come up with this week!!  
Our challenge ends Saturday, June 2nd at 9pm EST.
Now get going!!  :-)
