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 312 - Direction of Focus is "All Around" or add circles to your layout.

Well Good morning!!  
Welcome to the 4th and final challenge for September!  
We do have a prize for this one... along with Top 3 and GDT choice.
So play, play play!!!
With that said... we do realize we haven't posted the August winners yet.  (Busy I guess :) )
So... stay tuned and you will see ALL the WINNERS (both August and September) next Saturday the 1st... right before the next set of challenges.  Everyone will get to share in the limelight for the entire month of October on our sidebar.  
Okay... now on to our challenge! 
In sticking with the theme of DIRECTION... show us over the past year or so... how you "WENT ALL AROUND."  Basically this means Anything Goes that has to do with Direction.  

LM 312 - All Around - anything goes showing direction or simply add circles to your layout.

Thank you RITA for joining us as our Guest Designer this month!!

LM 310 - Show the direction of "FORWARD" or use Arrows on your layout.

Things are running a bit behind here at Lasting Memories today... so thank you for your patience!  
It's time for our next September challenge!!
In keeping with the monthly theme of DIRECTIONS... today's direction to highlight is FORWARD.

LM #310 = Anything to do with "FORWARD" motion... or use ARROWS on your layout.

 Planes, Trains and Automobiles Inspired... anything that moves. Boats, Bikes, etc...  Even your own feet, a ball etc.  Just show forward motion.  And if that is too much to think about... just put an arrow on your layout somewhere.  :)  

Okay... and we have another bit of news to share... please welcome LAUREN to our Design Team!  Lauren has found her scrappin' bug once again... and what better way to showcase that than to join our team!  Thank you Lauren!  So fun to see you again.


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. I was a member of the Lasting Memories DT in 2011, so I am thrilled to be re-joining the team!  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/.

I created a layout about Union Station in Los Angeles.

Now let's see what our GDT and DT have to show you!  You will see forward motion, or arrows or both!
Love it!

Either way, the seasons are changing fast this year. Thank you so much for joining us all of August, winners will be announced soon. 

Our theme for September is "Direction" meaning which direction did you go this year based on something you did? Maybe you went up, up and away? Maybe you went down into caverns or deep waters? It'll be an interesting month and we can't wait to see those layouts!
