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 #285 - Famous Movie or Actor Quote

Hello everyone! Happy Sunday to you! Today is the first full day of spring here in the Northern Hemisphere, and here in the middle of the US where I'm at it's feeling more like winter again!

We are back with our fourth challenge of the month. Our theme this month has been "Welcome to the Oscars" and the theme for this week is:

"Famous Movie Or Actor(s) Quote"

Everybody has that one movie that they love to quote. Now is the time to make a layout using that quote!

Here is a look at what the design team created, starting with our Guest Design Team member.

Karrie - GDT
"Here's Looking at you Kid" - From Casablanca

Quote: "Trust me, it's paradise." - Richard/Lenardo diCaprio, The Beach (2000)
Glitter/Glam: silver ribbon, silver charm, and microbeads

Quote - Say Hello to My Little Friend(s) - Scarface

Quote: "You Talkin' To Me?" from Taxi Driver by Robert De Niro
Since this picture was taken I have added the ? to it in the same color Thickers.

Quote - I just like to smile - smiling's my favorite - from the movie Elf.

We can't wait to see what movie/actor quote that you choose to use for this challenge! You have until April 1st to join in any of our March challenges!

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

(Follow general Oscars theme)

We are happy to have Karrie "Rejoin" us this month.  yay!!
Our MARCH Guest Designer...


Hi I’m Karrie from Ontario, Canada, and am a full-time receptionist. My hubby and I enjoy travelling, motor-bikes, camping, boating, and I play beach and indoor volleyball. Started scrapping in 2001, and am now lucky enough to have a rather large space packed tight and freedom to create almost every weekend! Our combined kids and grandkids and my pretty kitty Mini are my favourite subjects.
My blog is http://sweetscrapsbykarrie.blogspot.ca I am looking forward to hanging out here at Lasting Memories for the month of March!

And Karrie's Layout for LM 283...

Karrie used the inspiration from the GOLD from the Oscar itself for her layout.  

And our fabulous DT...

I went with the Movie theme....we went to see the new Star Wars Movie on New Year's Eve.

I have some gold foil hearts - for the gold statue, a red glitter heart and some bling hearts - for the glam, I used black and white - for the tuxedos, and I made a little "seal" with their initial - for the seal on the envelope of course!

Gold for the statue and Red for the red carpet at the Oscars

Inspired by the GOLD of the Oscar.  :)

Well these are sure fun!  Hope you think so too!  Can't wait to see what you have to create!!  

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