Introducing October's Guest Designer!!

 Happy Saturday! Today we are introducing our guest designer for October! I swear it seems like I was introducing September's guest designer just last week! 

We are thrilled to have the talented Jill Rugg joining us for October! Please help us give a warm welcome to Jill!  Jill joins our challenges regularly here at Lasting Memories and always blows us away with her creations.  

October GDT - Jill


 I live in Somerset, Pennsylvania with my husband, our 22-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son, and my little grandson. I am a high school teacher and use scrapbooking as my creative outlet. I have been crafting since I was a child, but in 2003 I fell in love with scrapbooking, and it has become my favorite hobby. Of course, my family photos are always my inspiration for my layouts. In 2010 I started a blog and love participating in all the fun challenges! Thank you Lasting Memories for having me as Guest Designer this month. It is a big honor for me!

Be sure to check out Jill's beautiful blog - Just Jill.

Welcome, Jill! We and so happy that you are joining us in October!

Tomorrow we will be bringing you a new theme and a new set of challenges for October. DT member Lauren has come up with a super fun theme and something we have never done here at Lasting Memories so be sure to check back in!

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