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!!

Here is our NEW GDT for December...


Hi, I'm Jennifer Earley, wife to Joe and mom to Declan and Keira. I've been scrapbooking and card making for 12 years now...how did that happen? I work very, very part time as an elementary school lunch aide and a middle school office secretary. In between cleaning the house, updating paint in too many rooms and scrapping as much as I can, I thank God often for my wonderful life and all that He has given me.
Thanks to the girls at Lasting Memories for giving me the chance to be this month's guest designer!
Take a visit and say Hello on her blog...
