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 #614 - Out of Your Comfort Zone - Photos

Hello everyone! Welcome back to Lasting Memories! We are so happy that you have stopped by. We have a fun new theme and new challenges all set for the next month. 

Just a quick reminder - starting with the September challenges we are no longer offering a monthly prize, but we will still have our Top 3 and Guest Designer picks each month. 

For September,  DT member Lauren is challenging us to get out of our comfort zone and try something new. Here is what she has to say about our September theme - 

We all have our own scrapbook style.  We tend to repeat certain elements, colors, and even layout designs.  This month, let's move out of our comfort zone.  These challenges won't be too specific because each person will need to evaluate their own scrapbooking and do something different from their typical layouts.

Our first challenge for September is:

LM #614 - Photos - create a layout using a photo that's not your typical size.  For example, if you mostly scrap 4x6 size, use a 5x7 or 8x10 photo instead.

Here are the lovely layouts from the design team, starting with our guest designers:

September GDT - Brandi

Brandi typically uses 4x6 photos or smaller so she used an 8x10 on her layout:

September GDT - Sarah

Sarah used smaller photos than she normally does on her layout:

And the beautiful layouts from the design team:


I used an 8 x 10 photo.


I used a 5x7 photo. 

Such beautiful inspiration to get you started! Now it's your turn - link up your layouts to the linky below by Saturday, October 1st at 6 PM Eastern Time for a chance to be our guest designer for an upcoming month!

Thanks so much for stopping by! We can't wait to see what you create!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
