Lasting Memories #234 - I Am So Lucky

Good Sunday morning! I am so happy - the boys are on spring break this week! We don't have any plans since Scott still has to work, but it will be nice to not have to go anywhere this week.

The new challenge is up over on the Lasting Memories blog. To finish up our month of "friendship" challenges, this week is Anything Goes with a Friendship theme.


I made a layout of me and my sisters. I am so lucky that each one of them lives so close to me and that we are able to see each other and talk to each other any time we want. The relationships that I have with each one of them are so different and unique and I am just so lucky to have them.

I used this sketch from Sketch Savvy:

I used the oh-so-pretty I Am collection from Simple Stories. I just love all the colors in this collection. I made some homemade "flair" to add a little something extra to my layout, and some candy buttons from Basic Grey that I have had in my stash for a while.

I am happy to say that with my last round of pocket style cards that I made for some swaps at Project Life Card Swap on Facebook, that I have passed my 50 Projects (and then some!) goal! I'm hoping with spring break this week that I will have some time to blog about a few of my favorite pocket style cards that I have made for these swaps. For now I am taking a little break from 50 Projects and I will be doing a little shopping to reward myself for meeting my goal. I will be starting round 2 - probably the first of April.

Be sure to head on over to the Lasting Memories blog to see what the rest of the design team has created. You have until the 27th to get your friendship layouts linked up. I look forward to seeing your creations.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great dat!


  1. This is such a wonderful page!!

  2. So sweet and pretty Lori, I don't have sisters but I hope my three girls grow up being friends forever! (once they recover from being teenagers that is!!).

  3. While I didn't have a sister, I had a couple of cousins that I was very close to. In fact, one of them became my very best friend and we married brothers. She was the sister of my heart, and I have just a few pictures of she and I together but they are treasures. And congrats on surpassing your scrapbooking goal. That's awesome. Such an inspiration!

  4. Congrats Lori! for meeting your goal have fun shopping. Fantastic layout, so cool your sisters are close to you :)
