Are ya ready???
(insert rocket sounds here and throw in some fireworks if it floats your boat)

Good morning my scrappy friends!! And as I type this it IS still morning....of course I am rather long winded but for now....IT"S MORNING!!!!!!!! That's my story and I'm stickin to it!!

I was so thrilled to see some of the entries from last weeks "A Summer's End" challenge....everyone's stuff was AMAZING!!!! be sure to check the blog today because we have the winner of the My Memories digital scrapbooking software!!! And when you play around with it and learn what buttons make pretty stuff and what buttons self destruct you can join in the challenges at Digitally Sweet!!!!
Remember, we are doing the challenges a little differently now and since this is the first one of the month I wanna make sure you know the score.......

We are now choosing a prize winner at the end of the month....for every challenge you complete you get an there are typically 4 weeks in a month , so that's 4 prize entries! Lookit the math brain on this girl!!!!! lol Soooo, obviously the more you play...the more chance there are for you to win.

And as if that weren't cool enough, we are still picking our weekly top 3 and you get a nice shiny badge for your blog......AND we wnat you to be a part of the fun here at LM and we are looking for people who are willing to step up and be GDT!! Just add GDT beside your name when you link the end of the month we will vote and it could be you!!!! that I got that stuff out of the way....and look! HA! It's still morning!!!! I am rockin this morning :)

The newest challenge at Lasting Memories is a DT Lift-Off! Just pick one of our DT's projects this week, they will all be linked up in all of their scrappy glory tomorrow for MoJo Monday!  Pick one and simply scraplift it!!! Easy huh??? I love scraplifting and just like with the sketch challenges.....take the layout and make it your own or follow it to the letter.

I bet you thought DT liftoff involved bottle rockets and nuclear warheads strapped to a DT member didn't ya?  Yeahhhh I was a bit disappointed that I didn't get to fly thru the air and sing Elton Johns Rocket Mannnnnnnnnn!!

Maybe next to Karen about it......I bet we can make her at least see the entertainment value of that :)

Here's my page this should have no problem if you  decide to scraplift this one....easy peasy design!! And there's my baby boy starring in yet another of mama's pages:):)
I was low on my alpha stash when i created this one so the "mama's boy" part is really hard to see.....I outlined it in ink and that helped, but it's not showing well on camera.  I used Bella Blvd's Mr Boy Collection on a kraft base and the black, white and grey alphas are remarks....I think??  I fussy cut a bot of the Mr Boy bits out and popdotted them, which I love to do.......only I didn't have popdots.......soooo I used leftover Thickers :)  My Dt sisters are probably cracking up right about now because I keep having this recurrent dream that involved Matthew Mcconaughey and his nearly naked, tanned,Magic Mike stripper bod and thickers........seriously!!!! So I peeled these thickers off of Ol Matt's bod, with my teeth of course....sighhhhhh.  And Adhered them to the back of the bits and used those for popdots.  

Is it hot in here??? Whewwwwwww!!! I am gonna have to start a rating system for my blog posts I think :)

Where was I?  OH!!! The Favorite Things journaling card was perfect for listing the things Jesse is loving right now......added some twine and TADA!! Done babe!

You have til Saturday to link em up and show us your stuff!!! Ready.....set......go!!!!

Also linking my project up at:
Anything But A Card Debut challenge....anything theoretically I assume you could also create a card.....Hmmmm.

OH, thank you so much for my best laugh of the day! As much as I enjoyed reading about strapping DT members to flying objects and some interesting crafting time with Mr. M, I have to say that your layout still managed to grab my attention (although it did tend to drift back to Matthew a few times...)! The bright colors, clean lines, and embellishments are perfect for a young man's page and the list of favorite things is such a great documenting piece! Will be fun to see how those change over the years!
Thanks so much for joining us at Anything But a Card Challenge!!

Tina you crack me up. I love the write up for this week. If only mine were as colorful. great layout too

Julia S-W said...

Really had a great time reading your post - so much fun and so informative! I must be the only person to wonder who Mr M is so I will google him later (perhaps I'm not awake enough in UK to have clocked him yet!).
Love your page with the various alphabets used and the appropriate embellishments you've added. Jesse will look back at this in years to come and learn so much about little details he'll have forgotten.
Thanks for joining us at ABAC.

I love how you used a neutral background and layered on tons of of color cardstock to top it off!! It totally draws my eyes to the photo!!

Suzanne said...

You are such a jokester. Love the way you hid the "mama" and love the idea of journaling favorite things. So many bright colors and things to look at.

Denise Pustelniak said...

YAY Tina, you get an A+ for this too! Still can't believe that is a mistake!

Carla said...

I see a lawbreaker up in the house tonight! heheh I could be a lawbreaker too with Magic Mike....whooohooo. Okay back to the serious part....LOVE the layout. Now I can't stop thinking about thickers and Channing...(Matthew not so much but still...)

Thanks so much for joining us at Anything But a Card!

Christy said...

You always make me laugh! LOL. I love that you did some handwritten journaling. It's something I'm really trying to do more of!! :) :) Thanks for joining us at ABAC :) :)

Elizabeth Campau said...

Thanks for the laugh! If you convince Karen on the rocketship, I am driving! I hate to see where we would end up. What a great way to document where Jessie is in life:) I like the momma's boy hidden-kind of goes with the concept:)

Kimberly said...

Jess said...
