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!!
So with the Hustle and Bustle of Christmas week... I found myself just wanting to decompress and check out what you all are creating! Yay! Love every single one of your scrappy pages! Here is a sample of what our Readers are submitting for our December challenges. You all have until December 30th to join all challenges. Or even just one of them. Take your pick!
Have fun! And thank you to all of you that have joined us so far!
If we featured you... grab our badge on left sidebar and display proudly.
Good Sunday morning to you! We hope you are having a good weekend! Are you all ready for Christmas yet? I still have quite a bit to get done, but that's okay, it wouldn't be the holiday season without a little hustle and bustle! At least the weather around here is making it feel more like Christmas!
Are you ready for our third challenge of the month? For December we have been doing a "Best Of 2016" theme, and bringing back some of our most popular challenges from this year. This week's challenge is:
LM 323 - Use only 4 photos - no more, no less
Here are the beautiful layouts from the deign team, starting with our guest designer -
And if you have made it this far... now it is time for the start of our DECEMBER challenges.
We are taking on a "BEST OF 2016" theme to end our year with a bang. We have picked the most popular challenges and we are duplicating them in hopes you will love to challenge yourself again with these great themes!!
So to start us off with our first challenge for December...
LM 321 - GLITTER and GLAM
This was based off a challenge we did to honor THE OSCARS. So show us your sparkling and glittering layouts!!
Hi, I'm Jennifer Earley, wife to Joe and mom to Declan and Keira. I've been scrapbooking and card making for 12 years now...how did that happen? I work very, very part time as an elementary school lunch aide and a middle school office secretary. In between cleaning the house, updating paint in too many rooms and scrapping as much as I can, I thank God often for my wonderful life and all that He has given me.
Thanks to the girls at Lasting Memories for giving me the chance to be this month's guest designer!
Take a visit and say Hello on her blog... Jens Creative Side
I'm having a hard time believing that this is our last November challenge.
In keeping with our SHAPE theme for the month... our last challenge is to use ANY SHAPE on your layouts. We certainly have some fun ideas from our GDT and DT this week. Have fun with this one!!
And would also like to thank ESTHER for joining us this month. Fabulous creativity in her layouts. We always like to have a new face join us each month. Thanks Esther!! See you around here again soon!!
And one last thing... our linky is now at the TOP of our BLOG for all challenges.
You have until FRIDAY 11/25/16 to join in on the fun!
We also realize that we are a bit tardy announcing the October winners. We have not forgotten.
LM 320 - ANY SHAPE
ANY Shape of your choice - Hexagons, Ovals, Clouds, Rain Drops etc...
Well November is sure moving right along... and so are our CHALLENGES!!
In case you missed it... we had to add a NEW linky for all of our November challenges! You can find at the top of the blog. Please link up with your name and some sort of mini description of which challenge it is for. Either "Circles" or "LM 317"... something for us to decipher the difference. Have fun and so glad we are back in business.
Now for the next November challenge... it's all about TRIANGLES!
