Lastimg Memories CAS

 Guess what!! We've decided that we'd like to add some new talent and creativity to Lasting Memories, so we're running a DT Call this week!! What a perfect week to do it because our challenge is "Clean and Simple" aka "CAS". So, if you're interested in trying out for our DT, please add DT with your name when you link up (KarenDT). We're looking for 5 new faces to join our team so good luck to everyone!!!

It's time for another awesome challenge at Lasting Memories Challenges. This week we are looking for your clean and simple layouts.
This week I did a two page layout.

Washi Tape: Stash (I need to figure out a way of marking it with manufacturer and name.)
Copic:Multiliner .08
Cardstock: DCVW The Bella Amoire Stack, Bazzill Licorice Twist Card Shoppe
Alphabet Stickers: American Craft Thickers Honey Puffy Letters
Dies: Spellbinders Label 1 Scalloped)

Tip: I used Washi Tape to make the diagonals. It makes it easier to correct if it gets crooked. I also found it is better to take the ends around the back and tape down with scrapbooking tape. It keeps it from coming up over time.

We saw these bears at The Three Bears Country General Store in Pigeon Forge, TN.  I know who would ever have thought????? And what really amazed us is that it was like listening to howling dogs when the fight broke out. (It was mating season.) And they really do stand up on two feet to show dominance.

Eventually the fight did stop when the staff brought out extra food. Just like humans solve the world's problems with what else-food. It does calm the nerves of the savage beast! LOL

Here's a quick video of the Bears

Anyway this was my favorite store in Pigeon Forge. The selection and variety of merchandise was unbelievable from the tacky tourist souvenirs to collectables.  Not to mention the fact an opportunity to see bears up close-HOWEVER these are Asian bears they are not the local black bear.

Looking forward to seeing your CAS layouts!


  1. Great pics, Elizabeth! There is a store a couple hours north from me and they had a couple bears as well. Mom was killed so they raised the babes. They are VERY loud when they fight! Great LO this week :)

  2. Sometime animals sound so different from what we that they would. great layout

  3. Somehow the fact that they are ASIAN bears instead of BLACK bears doesn't make me feel much better. :) But cool that they are at that store. I love your 2 pager... and I especially LOVE the Washi Tap that you stretched from one page to the other. Makes it all go together so well!! Awesome!!!

  4. I have to admit the washi tape kinda scares me but I purchased some this past weened and you have inspired me to use it. I really like this layout. It is always so much more fun to make a layout when there is a great story to go with it.

  5. Great LO.. Love the Washi! Toni.. :)
