Lasting Memories

I've been anxiously awaiting this moment to announce on my blog! I haven't been blogging for too long, but I have fallen in love with being on a design team! I'm happy to share with everyone that I am now part of Lasting Memories Layout Challenges' Design Team! This is my very first Design Team and I am extremely excited to be part of such an awesome team and to get to know these wonderful ladies!! Please make sure you stop by the blog and say hi to all the returning LMDTs and all the upcoming ones like me!

Let's get down to this week's challenge! 

"Simply You"

We are looking for layouts the represent YOU! It can be your personality, your scrap style, something you love! It is up to your interpretation as long as it's "Simply You"! The bonus is, we are sponsored this week by MyMemories. They are offering up a copy of their latest digital scrapbooking software!! I personally LOVE the software and my last few LO's have been done using it. What do you have to do to enter?
  1. Join the challenge this week and be sure to link up!
  2. Visit MyMemories then come back here and leave us a comment telling us what your favorite digital kit is!

Now to Simply Me!

This photo was taken at my wedding. It is of me handing my bouquet to a friend's daughter. Stargazer lilies are my favorite flowers. I love how they start off as these small buds, but bloom to these huge, gorgeous flowers. 

Now it's your turn! Show us "Simply You"!


  1. I'm so excited to be part of the design team with you! And your layout, omg, where do I begin! I love the butterfly and what a precious pic! just beautiful!

  2. Such an elegant layout. Love the butterfly and the touch of yellow. Black, white, yellow is my favorite color combo and you rocked it.

    Congrats on being part of the DT

  3. I love the elegance of your whole layout! The butterfly is just gorgeous! And that is a great picture too!

    Congrats on the DT! I can't wait to get to know everyone and rock more challenges!

  4. Marie!! This is such a precious photo and I LOVE how you scrapped it! Stargazer Lillies are also my favorite! We HAD some in our yard... but I don't know about where you live... but they would bloom here for a week and then be done and it would look like a big plant mess. My Hubby got rid of them. :-( Again.. welcome to LM! I am so glad to have you on the team! Your work is fabulous!

  5. What a beautiful photo, wow. That is stunning and what a memory to have. Welcome to Lasting memories!! So glad to have you on board. Your LO this week is gorgeous and can't wait to see more!!

  6. I'm such a fan of butterflies!! Love your embellishments and stamps. The contrast on craft paper really makes your layout pop. Look foward to creating with you on the LM DT.

  7. Stargazers are my favorite as well! Gorgeous photo, the design is fabulous and I love how you added the butterflies! So cute and it draws the eye right to the picture! Fabulous!

  8. Beautiful LO and so unique! Never heard of stargazers, being a fan of flowers, they're just beautiful!

  9. Welcome to LM and congrats on the DT. I am excited to learn more about you and your style and love this layout. Stargazers are one of my favorites also and I can just smell them by looking at your layout. Fabulous.
