Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a good Saturday!

It is almost a new month and tomorrow we will be kicking off a new set of challenges along with a new theme, so today we are introducing our talented Guest Designer for October - Lori Kobular! Here's a little about Lori:


Hi!  My name is Lori and I have lived my whole life in New Jersey!  I am married to my wonderful and supportive husband Wayne for 39 years.  We have two daughters, Julie and Jenna.  Julie just turned 32 and Jenna is 24 and I love scrapbooking about our lives!  It is my biggest passion!  I started scrapbooking when I was in grade school and then stopped for a while.  I went to a Creative Memories Class in 1997 and that class rekindled my love of scrapbooking!  I have been scrapbooking ever since!  I became a Creative Memories Consultant and I am currently on several Design Teams making cards!  When I am not scrapping I am making cards!   I love going to Crops so that I can work on my albums without any interruptions!  I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for Lasting Memories Challenge Blog!  It is one of my favorite Challenge Blogs to participate in!
