Specialized Hosting Sites
A lot of crafters use specialized hosting sites that not all of us have access to. We just wanted to let you know that if we don't comment, it's because we don't have access - but we see your work here at LM and appreciate your taking the time to link up and show off your style!!

Good morning friends!! Thank you for joining us last week!! This week we have some exciting news! We have a Guest DT joining us! Please help us welcome Brenda Rose ...
Here's what Brenda has to say about herself:
"Hello! I am so excited to be joining Lasting Memories as a guest design team member! My husband and I live in Minnesota in a northern suburb of the Twin Cities and will celebrate our 21st anniversary this summer. We have one grown son, so we are empty nesters now. I have been scrapping for about 21 years and have really watched the industry grow and change. I am a Close To My Heart consultant and very simply love it! Teaching scrapping to others is my passion, and I love that part of being a consultant. I have been blogging for almost three years, so I’d love to have you come and visit me at Rose Blossom Legacies. If I am not in my craft room, you’ll find me spending time with my family and pets. I am also an avid reader, and review books for a couple of sites. So my Kindle gets very good use! I look forward to working with this team and getting to know all of you through your artwork!"
Welcome Brenda! We look forward to working with you!! So now on to this weeks challenge!! We'd like to see you "recycle" on your LO's. What are we talking about you ask??? Recycle some ribbon, scrap pieces of paper .. what about those cards you have laying around? Recycle the inserts or the card fronts! Simple as that! Scrapbooks Etc has some great ideas and we can't wait to see yours! Here's some DT creations to get your mojo movin'!!!
Good morning!! Today's submission is from one of my DT members, Brenda, who wasn't able to get her LO in on time due to a PC hacking issue!!! Be sure to visit Brenda to see how she did this LO! Have a great day and don't forget to join the fun! You can find our current challenge here!

Here's some great layouts from the DT to get you inspired!
Good morning!! I've been a little behind on my "Featured" layouts, so trying to get back in the swing of things here! Today's submission comes to us from my very good friend, Kelli. Isn't this stunning! She has no trouble working with these rhinestones and makes it look so easy!!
