Introducing June's Guest Designers


Hello, everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a good start! Can you believe it is already June? I am so ready for the long lazy days of summer!

Today we are announcing our guest designers for June. Please help us welcome Rona and Sharon! These ladies are super talented and I know they are going to inspire you each week!
June GDT - Rona 

My name is Rona Mallard and I am happy to be a guest designer this month! I am now a stay at home grandma of two little boys who keep me very busy while momma and daddy work.  I have been scrapbooking and cardmaking for over 20 years and really enjoy staying current with the trends by watching youtube videos and entering challenges. I love to see what others are doing and I love to keep my style changing to keep my books fresh and interesting to look through.  

I am on Instagram - scraprona 



Hi!  I’m thrilled to be a GD this month and really hope people like my layouts.  A little about me, I’ve been married to a wonderful hubby Lee for 16 years and we have two gorgeous boys - Alexander & Nicholas and a beautiful daughter Cassandra.  I started scrapbooking when my eldest (now 15) was born as it was something I could do with my amazing Mum.  My family tends to be the focus of my scrapbooking. I love to ensure there’s a button or two on my layouts and at the moment, I’m experimenting with mixed media – stencils, paint and a bit of texture paint too.

In between juggling my family and finding the time to scrap, I’m busy preparing for September 2019 as that sees me start my year’s training to become a teacher.

I have a blog where I post my layouts and general life stuff too:http://www.mrsmanic.co.uk/ Please feel free to check it out.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for our June theme and the first of four new challenges.

I will be announcing April and May's Top 3, GDT Picks, and winners on Monday.

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!

Announcing Our New Design Team

Hello, everyone! Today we are excited to announce our new design team members!

We are so happy to have Mindy, Toni, and Connie joining our fabulous team!

Mindy


I am so excited to be on the Lasting Memories DT! My name is Mindy, I live in Ohio with my husband. We have a blended family of 2 boys and 2 girls plus 6 grandbabies and one more on the way in June!
Scrapbooking has been my passion for over 20 years!! I just started a blog when I found this challenge site so I am very new at that, but I enjoy learning new things! 

Mindy was our guest designer in April and you can see more of her wonderful work on her blog - Life of a Scrapbooking Grandma!

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.

I am excited and eager to make new Crafty friends!
