Hi all!!  Happiest Sunday morning wishes!!  We are up to our 4th challenge for July.

These Gals have done just that and have done it quite well if you ask me.  
Come join the fun and let's see what you can do with this week's color challenge.

A Formal GDT Introduction, Top 3, Winner and GDT for September

Hi all!  Michele here... and with all the celebrating and just plain summer festivities going on... we are finally getting to our WINNERS post from JUNE!

But before the reveal... we would like to introduce you to our GDT for the month of July.  Wendy has played with Lasting Memories for quite some time and we are happy to help her accomplish her one layout a day and to get caught up with those albums.  :)  We can all wish for that!!  

Thank you Wendy for designing with us this month.  You can see Wendy's first couple creations for the challenges HERE and HERE.  



Let me introduce myself, my name is Wendy and I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have been married for almost 23 years (gasp) and we have two children, Evan (13) and Elizabeth (11). I love trying new techniques and therefore I really do not stick to one particular style of scrapbooking. I am on a mission to get caught up on my photo albums (a girl can dream – right?) so I have challenged myself to try to complete a layout a day! Feel free to check in on my progress at my blog: W2 (http://w2spot.blogspot.com)! I am very honored to be a guest designer for Lasting Memories!

Now for our WINNERS!!!

TOP 3 for JUNE








We had 21 total entries... chosen randomly...
Our overall WINNER

Contact Michele for your prize info.


Our GDT for SEPTEMBER!!


Contact Karen or Michele for GDT info.

Congrats all!  And thanks for being so patient while we got all this figured out.  :)

Don't forget... 2 fun challenges for July already going on now.  Come play along!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!
