Introducing Our August Guest Designer!

Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a good weekend. I can't believe that it is already time to introduce our Guest Designers for August! The summer is going so quickly!
We have a talented group of designers joining us in August and I can't wait for you to see what they have created. Without further ado here they are:

Laurie
I'm a Midwest transplant on the East Coast. By day, I review toys, but by night (and every other hour I'm not at work), I'm a blogger and scrapbooker. I've been scrapbooking since high school, but my scrapbooking style has definitely evolved over 15+ years. I blog at Cook Scrap Craft, where I share my scrapbook pages plus other crafts and gluten-free food adventures thanks to my Celiac husband. I am also a first-time mom to a little girl, so I always have a lot of pictures to scrap!

You can find more of Laurie's beautiful work on her blog - Cook Scrap Craft.

Anna

Hi, My name is Anna and live in the Tampa Bay area near the sunny beaches of Pinellas County, Florida !!
I have 1 daughter who just turned 13 in April and is the main subject of must of my layouts!!
She's the reason I started scrapping in 2006. This year I have ventured out to Travelers Notebooks and absolutely love these!!
I have 4 now that I’m working on!! I am scrapping 5 years behind, hopefully, I WILL CATCH UP one day!!
I love to go to the beaches, camping, and Kenny Chesney!! I'm a country girl at heart, grew up in a small town in mid Illinois .
Nothing but cornfields for the most part...and the 1st chance I got...moved to Florida. I've been down here 26 years now.
Enjoy it very much but when the daughter goes to college, I just might venture out near the Carolinas or Tennessee !!
We love the mountains and visit often !!

You can see more of Anna's beautiful work on her blog - Love This Girl.

Cheryl

Hi everyone! My name is Cheryl Even and I’m very excited to be a guest designer for Lasting Memories this month.  A Southern California native, I have been married to my college sweetheart Greg for 27 years and am a SAHM to four wonderful kids, Adrian, Elliot, Brianna, and Oliver Angel. I’ve been scrapbooking ever since I went to my first scrapbooking party and decided to try it for a month to see if I liked it. 21 years later, I think you could say I stuck with it and loved it! Although my life is really busy with raising four children, leading a women’s Bible study, and playing guitar and singing on the worship team at church, I usually find time every week to sneak away to my craft room to scrapbook, and then I post my completed work on my blog,https://evenmorescrapping.blogspot.com/.

Cathy

Hi, My name is Cathy and I live in Keelung City of Taiwan with my husband and a 20 year old daughter. I started with crafting when my daughter has been interesting with making cards. When I found out about scrapbooking 5 years ago, that quickly became my new passion! Then I always want to spend more time for scrapbooking. I think it's the perfect way to save memories from our daily life. So happy to be a guest designer this month!
Please feel free to check them out!

Karen

Hi. I'm Karen. Mother to three wonderful grown children and grandmother to two grandsons. I have been "crafting" for as long as I can remember. I have been scrapbooking for over 20 years and have evolved through all these years trying new techniques to incorporate into my scrapbooking and card making. I enjoy preserving the memories for my family and myself.

You can find more of Karen's beautiful work here - https://www.acherryontop.com/gallery/user/37473396-karen-c.

We look forward to seeing all of the beautiful inspiration from these talented designers!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new theme and the first challenge of the month!
