October Stick it Down

Here's the October sketch for Stick it Down


I used photos from this past Christmas.  My friend and I went to Fonthill Castle in Doylestown, PA.  It was built in the early 1900's and has beautiful tile work throughout it.  At Christmas time, they decorate the castle with lights and trees throughout.  It was a beautiful tour and I am so glad I did it.

LM 515 - Wonders of the World - China

This month at Lasting Memories, we would like to celebrate the wonders of the world and celebrate different cultures. This week, we are focusing on China. The Chinese are well known for their Feng Shui. So this week we would love to see a layout that is balanced! Using the colors of the Chinese calendar - White and Blue.

I chose to create a layout from a friend's bridal shower in March.  The shower was the weekend before we went on lockdown for Covid-19.  I am so glad I got to spend some time with my girlfriends before we were on quarantine for the next couple months.

September Stick it Down

Here's this month's sketch at Stick it Down, designed by yours truly: 



I created a layout using photos from a parade for my nephew.  Justin became a volunteer firefighter at 16 years old.  During quarantine, just after he turned 17, his nextdoor neighbor collapsed.  She wasn't breathing and he gave CPR and brought her back to life.  His fire company did a drive by parade to celebrate Justin's heroism.  







September Challenge YOUrself

Here's my DT entry for Challenge YOUrself.  This month, we have a "thankful" theme.



I created a layout using this photo of my husband and I.  I am so very thankful for him.

LM 512 - Special Events - Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa

This month at Lasting Memories, we are creating layouts about special events.  This week, we are creating layouts for Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa.

I created a layout using a photo of my nephew visiting Santa for the first time.  I think this photo is so cute - especially since Mrs. Clause was there too.  He didn't cry, but he looks a bit petrified.  And OMG how cute is his sweater vest?!?
