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!!

Friday Featured Artist Is ...

Hi everyone!! We've decided to bring something back to LM that we used to do a year or so ago. We want to take a moment each week and recognize one of our readers for all that you do. So each Friday you will see a Friday Featured Artist post! If this happens to be you, don't forget to grab our "I was Featured" badge. To get our FFA started off, we asked Claire to choose someone that she would like to feature this week!

This week's featured artist is Carol of CM Designs.

My Photo

She is the owner of two blogs: CM Designs and Crafting for All Seasons Challenge Blog. Not only does she create wonderful layouts, but she knits amazing shawls and creates beautiful cards.  

Here's her LO for this weeks entry!

I love the faded background effect. Even though this is a digital layout, my creative right brain is figuring out a way to create this effect for traditional paper scrapbooking. There is something very captivating about this layout...

Another layout she shared with us was this beautiful digital from the Precious Family Moments Challenge.

Thank you Carol for sharing your layouts with us as Lasting Memories. We always look forward to seeing your work. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week as we
"Try Something New"!
