ANTICIPATION - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Good Morning Friends, time for the latest Design Team Reveal at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges. We are continuing with the August theme of Transportation and today's challenge is Hot Air Balloons.

Here is my layout...


This photo is of my Mom waiting for the crew to stand the basket up for our Hot Air Balloon ride. Because of my Mom's age, they had her climb into the basket before the balloon was fully inflated so that she wouldn't have to climb into the basket. Her face is just full of anticipation.

Here are a couple of closeups...


I added some Hot Air Balloon stamps to the background paper.


All of the papers are from a My Mind's Eye paper pad called "The Best of...", I added a library type journalling pocket and card to record my story.

I used sketch #335 from Sketches In Thyme as my starting point.


Be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories Blog to check out what the rest of the team created. We would love to see what you create with this challenge.

Amazing - Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Good evening, I have another layout to share with you using my July Counterfeit Kit.


I used my Masculine Kit for this layout. I took these photos a few weeks ago while we were waiting for the boy's ball game to start. Papa was having fun balancing his coffee cup on the little man's head.

I just added a couple of other items like the owl paper and washi tape to my kit that I had out for another layout that I was creating.

Here is a closeup...


Be sure to check out the fun challenges at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. It is a great way to use up the items you have in your stash.

Nana's Helper - Scrapping4Fun GDT

Good day everyone. Today I would love to share a layout that I created as a Guest Designer at Scrapping4Fun Challenges. Here is today's challenge:- to use butterflies and flowers on your creation.


Here is my layout...


I created a double layout of my Grandson & I planting my raised veggie garden this spring. He just loves to garden and watch everything grow.

Here is each page close up...



Here are some closeups...


I created flower clusters by fussy cutting some flowers from one of the papers and I added a wood veneer butterfly.


This cluster is from a group of stickers and I used my butterfly punch and layered up two butterflies and attached them with a tiny staple.

I would like to thank Scrapping4Fun Challenges for inviting me once again to be a Guest Designer for this fun challenge.

Smile - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Good Morning friends, it is time for the latest Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team reveal. We are continuing with the theme for July of "All About Me" and today's challenge is Throwback to your glory days - Create a layout documenting a photo and/or story from the past. You may have a story that doesn't have an accompanying photo - no problem! Find a stock photo online of something to do with the memory, or set up a staged photo to represent the story. You can dig out the archives and scrap those baby pics of yourself too! Document an old memory you've been meaning to record.

Here is my layout....


I decided to do a photo of myself as a child. Here I am happily and proudly smiling with my new stuffed doggie! I believe that I am just over 2 years old and this is Christmas time by my outfit. I am actually standing on top of the freezer as this was the photo op spot when I was growing up!

Here are some closeups...



I was inspired by the Jump Start sketch from The ScrapRoom.

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's creations. We would love to see what you create with this challenge.

Margarita Party - Counterfeit Kit Challenge GDT

Good Morning everyone, today I am thrilled to share with you the First challenge for July over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge where I have been asked to be the GDT for July. And the challenge is called "Forget Me Not" and the details are as follows:
We all have them - those tools and embellishments that get pushed to the side and are collecting dust. Pull out those forgotten tools and embellishments and put them to use - punches, brads, buttons, ribbons, etc. Show those items some love again.

Here is my layout...


As the journalling and title suggests, we had a Margarita Party for my husband's birthday. We surprised him with a party as it was a week night and he didn't think anyone could attend. Two of our children were able to make it with their families. He was totally surprised.

Here is each page close up...


We did a Margarita theme party mainly because he was turning 59 and was born in 1959. So it was instead of a Champagne birthday for he would have had to celebrate that when he was 10 years old.

For the challenge I started out using a border punch that I cut three different patterned papers and layered them up across the bottom of my photo collage.


I also used my favourite ampersand punch and layered one over another with pop dots. I dusted off my Cuddlebug and some old lettering dies and created the title. The font is perfect for the theme of my layout.


The papers that I gathered for my Summer Fun Counterfeit Kit are just perfect for this layout.


Lots of fun embellishments finishes off the challenge.
I hope you are able to get some inspiration from my layout. Be sure to check out the Design Team's creations over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.
