Lasting Memories Challenge Blog

While doing some internet searches recently, I discovered Lasting Memories Challenge blog!  They have some great challenges and sketches to work with!  What I really like about this challenge blog, is that they only except layouts . . . no cards!  Since I'm not a great cardmaker . . . this is right up my alley!

This challenge is all about Celebrations . . . Birthdays, graduation, anniversaries, special milestones . . . the possibilities are endless!!

They also provide a sketch for you to use, but it's optional!!  As long as the layout is about a celebration you can use your own design!!

It's a GREAT sketch so I based my celebration layout on the sketch!!

Here is the sketch from Lasting Memories . . .
