New Challenge at Lasting Memories

Lasting Memories has posted their new challenge (#274) for the new year!  The challenge is to create a layout following the theme "New Beginnings."  Show us what you do that's NEW.  Activity, sport, project, hobby, making a new friend...

Since I am still working on 2012, I found photos of my son trying on his new hockey equipment - getting ready to learn how to play ice hockey.  He was really excited about his new adventure and still loves the sport today.

I can't wait to see what new adventures that you experienced!  Links are due at the end of January.

Here is my example:

To help me pull this page together, I used a PageMap from January 2016.

Another note that I need to add is that I re-organized most of my scrap stuff.  I followed Totally Tiffany's plan (using some but not all of her materials) and I have to say it was easy to pull this layout together.  I was so tickled how everything came together so quickly and pretty much effortlessly.  How crazy is it that the cardstock, transparency and labels all had little dots on them.  Though I have to admit - that was simply pure luck but none-the-less, I was able to find all of these elements under 10 minutes.  The whole layout took me less than 30 minutes to complete.  I'm just a little excited.

Materials Used: Coredinations cardstock, Bazzill cardstock, scrap transparency, Basic Grey -Basics Label Stickers, Me & My Big Ideas Soft Spoken embellishment (hockey title), and brads.


  1. Wonderful looking layout :) I ended up pulling my challenge from 2013 photos I had on hand :) Great job with the organizing I should look into this for my own organization this month of my room :)

  2. Hiya Hun! I see that you have been busy being the 'mum taxi' of late and so it's lovely to see you scrapping again! I love that Evan is showing off his new kit AND allowing you to take photo's! (those days are gone for me, I have to be content with the cats!). Hope to play along with this challenge as I have a photo of Sammy passing her driving test. xx

  3. Great layout and pics. Love the close up pic of the other pic.

  4. Great layout Wendy! I may have to go back in my photo stash as well. Gone are the days of getting all those photo's of my kids too .. I just get my dogs lol! Great layout! I'll have to check out that link as well.
