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!!

LM #148 - Country Charm

Hello and happy Sunday!! We'd like to take a moment and say welcome to some new faces we've seen here at LM! It's nice to see you and we're glad you found us!! We loved your "precious family" layouts last week. You inspire us as much as I hope we inspire you! This weeks challenge is:

Country Charm

We had some questions and ideas flying around our DT yahoo group about this one and came up with some great ideas! We're looking for "Country Colours" but this could even mean your country colours! Ex: Canada = red/white, USA = red/white/blue! Or just use a country colour palette! We're also looking for a charm on your LO as well. So, we need to see country colours AND a charm this week. Here's some inspiration from our DT member, Kimberly, to help get you going. See you tmw with our Monday Mojo!

Paintbrush Tutorial

First Download the program and it is free!
For windows it is called 'paint.net'
For Mac it is called 'paintbrush.com'
Open the program by choosing with Paintbrush or Paint
choose your blank digi (Yours won't be watermarked)
Start coloring!

You can print out several digi's, in any size you want from as large as your paper is, to tinie tiny! And change the color and direction.
Just each time you print it, choose 'SAVE To' and then it will ask you where to save it
Remember 'Save' and 'Save to' are different things.
I will have the 'Remove Background' at 'Digitally Sweet Challenges' later today.
Have FUN!!!
