LM #376 - Word Play - Happy

Hello, everyone! Happy New Year's Eve to all of you! As 2017 is coming to an end, we want to thank you all for supporting Lasting Memories this past year. All of you, our readers, are what keeps us inspired to keep bringing you challenges each week. 

We hope that you all had a good Christmas. I know things have been so incredibly busy these last couple of weeks and I am going to be kind of glad to get back into the old routine!

Before we get down to business, we have some great news to share - Denise will be joining our Design Team full time this year! 


Welcome to the team, Denise! We are so happy to have you here!

We also have a new guest designer for January! Please help us welcome Deanna!


Hi everyone! I'm Deanna and I'm so happy to be Guest Designer for Lasting Memories once again! I'm always so inspired by their challenges! Sometimes 'life' keeps me busy being Nana to 9 wonderful grandkids, and I love every moment! With my love of scrapbooking, I enjoy scrapping all their photos. I also enjoy walking, biking, reading, and traveling. 

Be sure to check out Deanna's blog - Moments To Cherish - to see her beautiful work!


The new month brings us to a new theme and a new set of challenges for you.  January our theme is "Word Play" and our first challenge is "Happy".

LM #376 - Happy - use some form of the word "Happy" on your layout.

This can be in your title, in your journaling, or even on an embellishment, just show us some form of the word happy (happy, happiness, happiest, etc.) on your layout.

Here are the beautiful layouts from the design team, starting with our guest designer, Deanna:
