Hello and welcome to our very first challenge for 2015 at Lasting Memories! We’re celebrating the new year and new Design Team with a blog hop. Super fun right?! If you’re just starting the hop, be sure to start at Lasting Memories so you don’t miss anyone – if you’re last stop was Suzanne then you’re on the right track!
Our challenge theme this entire month is “Life’s Moments” and our first challenge is “Life’s Simple Pleasures” .. we want to know what one of your simple pleasure’s in life is. Chocolate? Coffee? Adorable children, pets or grandchildren?? SO many things to consider and we’re excited to see what you create! What’s my Simple Pleasure??? Here, let me show you!
One of my favorite Simple Pleasures is seeing our son interact with my sister. They are the best of friends and no matter how crabby he is anything he does with her is golden. In this particular case they were making chili while hubby and I snuck away to a movie.
I started this layout with the sketch from My Creative Sketches. I liked how linear the sketch was, but still left room for interpretation. Except for the Studio Calico wood stars and the title all items on the layout are from the Bella Blvd Max collection. You can’t tell in the photo, but I also used a Tim Holtz stencil and put white modeling paste through it. In person it adds a very subtle touch to the page.
I can’t wait to inspire you more with the Lasting Memories challenges!
Your next stop is Bea and when you’re all done visiting the new Design Team, we really hope you’ll have time to join the fun! All our challenges run for the entire month, so you have time to play! Thanks for stopping by today!

Awesome layout – I love the star motif! Their relationship is so sweet – and you are so lucky to have your sis live close enough to spend quality time with your son (and hey, movie for mom and dad sounds good too.)
