Specialized Hosting Sites

A lot of crafters use specialized hosting sites that not all of us have access to. We just wanted to let you know that if we don't comment, it's because we don't have access - but we see your work here at LM and appreciate your taking the time to link up and show off your style!!

Lori


Hi! My name is Lori and I live in a very small SW Missouri town with my husband, Scott. We have 3 adult children, Abby, Matthew, and Shane, and the sweetest granddaughter, Ada.

I started scrapbooking about 21 years ago and I haven't looked back since. Nothing relaxes me any more than spending time in my scrap room. I love looking back on all that has happened and preserving those memories! I would call my scrappy style clean and simple, but lately, I have really been having fun adding more layers to my layouts.

You can find me at My Happy Life any day of the week. I would love for you to stop by!

Tina



Hi I am Tina. I am so excited to be here today. Thank you to Lasting Memories for giving me the opportunity. I live in South Williamsport, PA. I am married to a wonderful man now 21 years between the 2 of us we have 8 kids, 17 Grandkids, 1 Greatgrandkid and another on the way :) We are the owners to 1 fur-baby too, Buddy an Australian cattle dog (Blue Heelers) and has been part of our lives since 2004. I'm a mold ejection laborer employed through a temp agency.
I started scrapbooking in 2007 when 2 coworkers/friends took me to my first crop, one of the girls said all I needed to bring was the pictures and anything special to go with them, she provided me with my first album and I had access to her supply of paper. I fell in love with the hobby that day and have been doing it since, that year for Christmas they gave me my first tote-bag kit that I still use when going to crops. I love to scrap in my Scrapcave (scraproom) it gives a chance to relax and enjoy the process of preserving memories. I scrap, make cards, smash and project life.
You can find me at Tina's Scrap Corner I look forward to meeting you all soon :)

Lauren


I'm Lauren and I'm from Philadelphia, PA.  I have been married to my husband Mike for 11 years.  We have 3 furbabies: Rocky the Boxer, Daphne the Cavelier King Charles Spaniel and Oliver the tuxedo cat.  I work as a Senior Account Manager for Jostens, a yearbook publishing company.  I work with photography, creating layouts and graphic design, so I joke that I even scrapbook at work.

I have been crafty my whole life, but I began scrapbooking in 2002.  I joined a sorority and they would create a scrapbook for each semester.  Each big sister would create a scrapbook for their little sister.  The first scrapbook I ever made was for my little sister.  Shortly after that, I made one for my boyfriend (now husband) who was in the Army and stationed overseas.  I've been scrapping ever since! 

When I'm not working or crafting, I enjoy cooking, baking, gardening and reading.  I love photography and travel, especially since it gives me something to scrap about!

Toni


G'Day from Australia scrappers. Toni Herron here and so happy to be joining the talented Lasting Memories DT. I am 32yrs old, live in a beautiful sunny part of central Queensland in a small coastal town called Yeppoon. I have two very active and sporty boys Lane 16yrs and Hunter (will be 9yrs next month). My life and most of my layouts focus and feature my boys. My favourite colour, however, is Pink, so I take great pleasure in being able to have any opportunity to do up very pretty girly layouts of my own selfies every now and again too. Besides crafting my main passion is being a Chief Steward / Official at the Speedway (dirt track oval racing), baking, reading and watching movies/tv shows. 
After a couple of years break, I'm now back into my crafting and loving every moment of it. I would like to Thank the LM DT for allowing me to join them and can't wait to share my creations with you that can hopefully inspire you to get scrapping yourself.

My name is Michele.  I've been working with Karen here at LM first as a Designer since 2011.  Can't believe it.  Then she asked for some more permanent help... and I of course said yes... and became a blog Co-Owner about a year 3 years ago.  I love seeing this blog grow and transform and see new followers weekly. 
I am also currently a designer for Sketches in Thyme. 

I have been married for 15 years  Have a Daughter and Son, 5thd and 8th grade.  They love school, reading and are sports enthusiasts!  You name it, they probably play it.  I am a pretty busy cheerleader Mom as well as a Coach for son's soccer team with my Husband.
I also work very part time as a Pricing Coordinator for a big retail company.  "Retired" from my full time Executive job in 2008 when my Husband and I decided it was more important for me to be home. 

I've been scrapping since 1988.  But really didn't get serious about it until 1999.  I went to my first Stampin' Up party and was hooked. 
My style is whatever I am in the mood for.  I know so many different techniques, but a lot of time will just keep it clean and simple with clean lines, but love paper layering,  for I really just like to get the story down on paper and into my albums. 
I also make cards.  Lately doing some special projects for friends has kept me pretty busy. 

I live in the great Pacific Northwest where I am an avid hiker, waterskier, beach goer, former snowskier and soccer player.  I love a good book, movie, board games and we can't forget good ol' reality TV. 

So much more to learn as we all share our scrapping layouts for the next 6 months.  You can find more on my blog Michele's Scrappin' Memories and More..

My Photo

I have been happily married to hubby for 13 yrs this coming August, but together for 23 this coming June! Two amazing kids, Andrew (19 this June) and Ashleigh (14 this past Oct). We had a lot of changes in our household these past few months! After being home for 17 yrs, I decided to go back to working full time - mornings at a church office and afternoons/evenings at an Optometrist office. I am totally loving it! Hubby changed jobs after being with the same boss for YEARS (best decision ever!) Andrew started University so living away from home and Ash started high school. A LOT of changes and adjustments so my scrapbooking really took a hit. I am going to work hard at getting back to a routine and in my craft room!

I have been crafting for many years. I started out as a CM consultant, then went to my first CTMH party and was hooked. I've been a consultant with them since 2007 :) A very close friend and I co-host 3 retreats a yr and I use that time to get ahead on my layouts!

We are a very animal friendly home .. we have 2 cats and 3 dogs .. our newest addition being little Ace, a boston terrier/pug cross for our daughter this past Christmas. Life is a little hectic, but I wouldn't change it for a thing!

I am not a chronological scrapper - I am seriously all over the map lol and I work with whatever I have within reach. I love to challenge myself, I have a hard time with sketches (tend to do a lot of tweaking!) and sometimes I sit and stare at a page for what feels like hours before I get that "That's IT!" feeling of the final touch. I have turned one of the kids old bedrooms into my craft room, love it! Now I just need to organize it (Yikes!)
