Introducing June's Guest Designers

 Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday to you! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. Today we are introducing our guest designers for June.

We have two very talented scrappers joining us this month. Please help us welcome Haven and Julene!

June GDT - Haven 


I'm super excited to announce that I'll be a guest designer for Lasting Memories for the month of June.  I love playing along with the challenges and getting inspiration from the design team.  I think their challenges are some of the best but I might be biassed as I'm a former DT ( 2013-2017).  Life just got too busy to continue to commit to the team, so I stepped away from contributing and have played along when I could.  This year one of my #2021goals is to scrap for at least 15 minutes a day and write a blog post at least once a week. With the help of a friend and a cute month tracker I’m sticking close to my goal, only missed seven days so far this year. 

You can see more of Haven's beautiful work on her blog - Haven's Haven



Julene Matthews has been scrapbooking for about 18 years and has been on several design teams. She’s a regular participant at Lasting Memories. She lives in Sydney Australia and is a retired Teacher-librarian.

You can see Julene's beautiful work on her blog - Julene By Design.

We have a new theme and a new set of challenges all ready to go for you starting tomorrow so be sure to stop back by!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Have a great day!
