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 #270 - National Roof Over Your Head Day

Need your Votes!!
Hey... have you seen our new voting system yet?  We need your help deciding on all those fabulous layouts from November.  Just click on the HEART in the right corner of each layout you LOVE and your vote will be counted.
Here are the challenge links...
LM 266 - 5 things you are thankful for
LM 267 - who are you thankful for?
LM 268 - thankful inspirational photo
LM 269 - BINGO

A while back, we asked our DT what they would like to see in our challenges and we had a lot of neat ideas and suggestions. There are some people out there that do not celebrate Christmas, don't see snow etc so we wanted to make sure that our December challenges could include everyone so we did some digging and you will see that our challenges this month are a little out of the box, but we think you'll have fun with them AND we will also be adding a twist for those that want to add Christmas, snow etc.
Here's our first challenge of December!
LM #270
National Roof Over Your Head Day - Date When celebrated : Always December 3

Today is  National Roof Over Your Head Day. It is a day of appreciation for the things we have, starting with the roof over our heads. For most of us, a roof over our head signifies living in a house that protects us from the elements, keeping us warm, dry, and cozy. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as you and I. There are many homeless people right here in our country. Some people live in a cardboard box on the street...... literally. There are millions of people around the world who live in poverty or disaster areas, and do not have a home to keep them comfortable and safe. Spend a few minutes  being thankful that you are not homeless, and appreciating your roof and home today. Also make a contribution to a homeless shelter, so others can come in out of the rain.
Happy National Roof Over Your Head Day!

Scrap about your home or someone else's home or any home in general. .
Or switch: Scrap about your home during the Holidays. Seeing Christmas lights would work.

Please Give a Warm welcome to our December GDT...

Hi there! My name is Lizzy Hill & I live near Sydney, in Australia. I'm in my 50s & have a husband, a dog & 2 grown up sons. I also have 2 grand boys & a host of 'steps' that provide great scrapping material!
My fave paper crafts are LOs & cards, but I'll have a go at anything - because most of all I ADORE challenges of any kind! I've been blessed to be on some beaut Design Teams - 5 currently. I've been published both in Australia & overseas. I think my biggest thrill was having my LO on a scrap magazine cover. That was awesome! Scrappy style? Bold - I love white space, but always want to fill it. And I believe journaling is really important. I do love trying new ideas, too. I feel really honoured to be a Guest Designer this month ~ & hope you find some inspiration in what I've created. Thanks for having me!

And now for some MORE inspiration from our DESIGN TEAM...
And... yahoo... look at this fun Paper Prize Pack from LORI!!  
Just enter our challenges all month long for your chance to WIN!!

We are also looking for GDT's for 2016.  So enter, enter, enter!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!

LM #267 - Who Are You Thankful For?

Our challenge this week can be easy for some, tough for others. Some it will even bring a tear to your eye and a smile in your heart, or it could have you in a full out belly laugh (all by yourself!) as you recall that awesome thing you did with that special someone.

We are looking forward to "meeting" that special person in your life! Please take a moment and meet the special people or person in ours ..
