Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Lasting Memories - we are so happy that you have stopped by. Today we share our theme for September and the first of five new challenges. Let's get started.

It's been a while since we've done a patterned paper challenge here on the blog so our theme for September is going to be "Patterned Paper Play" and each week we will give a pattern that you must use on your layout.

 LM #563 - Polka Dots

Use some kind of dotty paper on your layout - small dots, large dots - it is up to you.

Introducing September's Guest Designer!!

 Hello, hello! Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. 

Today we are excited to introduce our guest designer for September. Please help us welcome the talented Karen B! I love Karen's style and I know she will be sharing beautiful inspiration with us each week in September.

September GDT - Karen B


Thank you for inviting me to be a guest designer at Lasting Memories this month.
About me:  I'm married with an adult daughter, and I work full-time.  We live on 14 acres in a semi-rural area in Southeast Queensland, Australia - with eucalyptus trees, koalas, kangaroos, native birds, chickens, and a dog. When not "safe at home" I enjoy country drives, hiking and camping, and visiting local markets and cafes.  I've been scrapbooking for around 20 years, and I still love traditional layouts best of all.  Fun trivia piece - I was on the LM design team back in 2014!  I've dabbled in all kinds of techniques and styles, and I enjoy trying new things, but my go-to, happy-place style is simple and linear.  On most of my layouts you'll see simple colour combos, old stash (!) with personal touches such as machine stitching, doodling or fussy cutting.  I'd love you to pop in to my blog - beingkaren@blogspot.com 

Welcome, Karen! We are so happy that you are joining us in September!

Be sure to stop back in tomorrow for our new theme and a new set of challenges for September. We will be playing with our patterned paper this month and we hope you will join us!

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