Lasting Memories Ch. 54 - "Simply You" and a Giveaway!!! :-)

God Sunday morning everone!!  Today over at Lasting Memories layout challenges there is a bunch of fun stuff going on!!  It's our first kick-off challenge with our new Design Team members!!  The challenge this week, it's all about "Simply You" ... can be your style, you personally, something you love .. just "Simply You". Super easy, super fun!!!  As you visit all our blogs, you're really see that this is a VERY versatile challenge!!!
I decided to share a layout based on a couple things you may not know about ME quite yet.  :-)  Other than my kids, family and friends... I LOVE Date nights with my Husband and I LOVE the start of the NFL Football Season.  It's 17 weeks (give or take) of pure Thursday, Sunday and Monday night entertainment.  My Hubby and I enter a pool each year, picking our favorite teams and follow these teams religiously throughout the season.  And if for some reason my Hubbs is glued to the TV and I am not quite that interested... it's a great time to escape and scrapbook!!  It's a Win/Win.

These are pictures from 5 years ago at a Seahawks game.  We had SUITE tickets and were treated like gold.  Other than the ticket stub and some random things I cut out of the program, most of this layout is a part of a kit that I bought at a convention.  If you all have some eyelets laying around, they are great for making a LACED UP FOOTBALL.  :-)

I would also like to give a WARM welcome to these Ladies for being our newest DT members over at Lasting Memories.  Congrats girls!!!!
And returning for another term are ... Karen, ME, Brenda, Kim and Evanna!!!  I was asked by KAREN to be her BLOG VP.  Woo hoo!!!  LM is getting busier with lots of GREAT things to come!  So together, we will be sure to not miss a beat.  I was excited about that. I will have my blog list updated later this week, so you can find these gals with ease... but in the meantime, check out the Lasting Memories Blog to see their fine work!!

Ohhhh and wait.. we have a WONDERFUL GIVEAWAY this week for entering our challenge.

Hey Michele! I LOVE date night too! It's something hubby and I realized is VERY important - especially when you have kids. It's just time to get out and have some US time, no matter what it is! Love your LO theme/idea. It's great and certainly fits this weeks challenge!! Love the laced up football!! Thanks again for all your help this week and in the weeks too come! I'm so happy that LM seems to be taking off and now I have some help!
