Okay... Here we are finally and thank you for being so patient!!
Let's get right to it...
Another silly National Holiday to recognize... See in red below what to scrap about for this challenge.
National Ding-a-Ling Day (A)
Date When Celebrated : Always December 12
Today is National Ding-a-Ling Day, a very special day to "Ring your Bell". Nope, we're not talking about the Salvation Army Bell Ringers, standing with their bells and kettles, outside of every store in the country. On National Ding-a-Ling Day, you should brace yourself for bizarre and crazy behavior, from all of the people you encounter today. Even normally conservative people have been known to go a little crazy on this day. Some people say this is a day for wackos, lunatics, and others who are off their rocker. We say, it is simply a day to cut loose, act a little weird. What do you do to celebrate this day? Be ever vigilant to the ding-a-lings that will come out of the woodwork. Ding-a-Lings will be everywhere: on the road, on the street, in stores, and even in your house! We suggest you get into the holiday spirit, and become a ding-a-ling yourself......But, please do so for just one day.
For the record: Ding-a-Lings and Ding Bats are not quite the same thing.

National Brownie Day
When : Always December 8
National Brownie Day celebrates chocolatey, chewy brownies.
Brownie lovers, love chocolate. Conversely, chocolate lovers, love brownies. Therefore, its only natural, that we have a special day to celebrate brownies. It's fun and easy to enjoy this special day. First, select your favorite brownie recipe, and bake a batch of brownies. You can add nuts, if you prefer. Topping the brownies with chocolate frosting is a good thing, too. Finally, eat them! You can have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a snack.
P.S. Don't forget the glass of milk!
Happy National Brownie Day.

Intorducing our 2nd December GDT -
Hi everyone. My name is Cheryl Even and I live near Los Angeles, CA. I’ve been married to my college sweetheart for almost 24 years, and I’m a SAHM to my two wonderful boys and to two sweet foster children. I love scrapbooking, and have been doing it since my first Creative Memories encounter in 1996. I’ve come a long way on my scrapping journey since then, but my favorite tools are still paper and stamps. I love the clean and simple look, and most of my layouts tend to be pretty linear. I’m the scrapbook sketch designer for Splitcoast Stampers, but I love to use other people’s sketches, too! I’m also a challenge junkie, and I try to incorporate at least one challenge (like the fun ones from Lasting Memories) into every layout I create. When not scrapbooking, I can be found doing homework with my kids, reading, playing the piano, or working on a Bible study. Thanks for inviting me to be a guest designer this month, Lasting Memories team. I’m really looking forward to the other challenges!
