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!

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!!

Let's see what our awesome DT has done with this challenge ...
 July GDT
The colors of candy land made me think of a painter's palette and this is what I came up with.

I was inspired by the bright, fun colours and the closest I had to candy was freezies!!!

I also went with all the colors on the game board
I went with the candy theme and some of the colors found on the game board.
I went with the colors and something along the blocks with a photo then a block

Fantastic layouts :) Now it's your turn to be inspired by CandyLand

First a little about Lauren...

Hi, I'm Lauren and I'm from Philadelphia, PA. I've been married to my husband Mike for 8 years and we have two furbabies. I work at a yearbook publishing company, so I am always looking at yearbook layouts for scrapbooking ideas. I started scrapbooking 14 years ago and I am absolutely obsessed. My other hobbies include photography, reading, gardening, and cooking/baking. I love to travel, and that provides so many scrapportunities for layouts. You can find my blog at http://lem-photography.blogspot.com/.

Here is "Snippet" of Lauren's layout and the rest of the DT
... Hop along all the way through to see the rest!!

Here is the order of the blog hop in case you get lost along the way:

And we can't have a whole month of challenges without a PRIZE??

So check this out!
Thank you DT Sandy for offering this wonderful prize gift!!

**  A few things to remember... 
The above prize is for the whole month of challenges (new challenge starts each Sunday)  
Hop along to each DT member for a chance to win their prize.  They may have their own rules... so follow accordingly.
