LM #578 - 2021 Flashback Challenges - Title Challenge

Hello and welcome back to Lasting Memories! We are so happy that you have stopped by today. 

Today we are sharing our third challenge of the month. As a reminder, our theme for December is "2021 Flashback" and we will be revisiting some of our favorite challenges from this year. This week's challenge is a title challenge:

LM #578 - Title Challenge - "It's a Wonderful Life" - Create a layout and use the phrase - It's a Wonderful Life - as your title. 

Even though this title is generally associated with the holidays - your layout does not have to be holiday-related. You could make a layout about time spent with your loved ones, or maybe a great vacation, or maybe just having a quiet moment with that great cuppa whatever! Whatever that phrase means to you - use it as the title of your layout.

Here's a look at the design team's beautiful creations, starting with our guest designer:



And the rest of the design team:

Introducing December's Guest Designer!!

 Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday to you all! I do hope that you are having a good weekend.

I can't believe that it is already time to introduce our last guest designer for 2021! Please help us welcome the talented Vivi:

December GDT - Vivi


I`m Vivi Casale and I`m so happy to be Guest Designer this month! Thank you for the opportunity!
I`m happily married and live in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I work as a Secretary for over 35 years and have been crafting for over 10 years now.
In my spare time, I love to play in my craft room with my craft supplies or just sit there to create a digital scrapbooking page (this is my new addiction)!  Besides crafting my other passions are books (especially novels), purple color, and traveling around the world!

You can see more of Vivi's beautiful work on her blog - Handmade by Vivi Casale.

Welcome, Vivi! We look forward to seeing your beautiful layouts all month long!

Tomorrow we will be back with a new theme and a new set of challenges to finish out 2021!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
