I'm Paula, an avid scrapbooker with 2 nearly grown sons. I have been scrapping for about 17 years & decided that I would like to share my love & talents for it with others. I created 'Precious Pages by Paula' to do exactly that. There is a line of pre-designed scrapbooks & frames, as well as doing custom one-of-a-kind albums with your photos. Cards are prayerfully made in the hopes of carrying special blessings to their recipients.
Today I am here to share with you one layout and one special project that I really enjoyed creating. First for the layout. I chose Team B May Week 2 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.
I rotated the sketch 1/4 turn counter clockwise.
and the layout!

fun fabric ribbon with stitching
and then my stitched circles
Next up is a really fun project. I've recently joined a Facebook group called Addicted 2 Paper Dolls. The Monthly Contest just closed. The Theme for this month was April Showers bring May Flowers. Of course with it being a Doll group you would create something using the theme that would include a Julie Nutting or C-thru the Woods doll stamp.
I decided I would make a small canvas. I started by using some white chalk paint that I add a few drops of re-inker to and painted my canvas. I had a few sheets of paper, chipboard and sticker embellishments that were just perfect for the theme from an old Crate Paper collection. I fussy cut the clouds from one of the sheets of paper and used some chipboard raindrops and flowers. I created my dolls and chose an inspirational sticker to finish it off.
Today I had a wonderful Mother's Day with my two sons and my future daughter-in-law (no - there are no official plans set yet but...we all know there will be...hopefully soon!) We had a delicious brunch at IHOP and spent some time together this afternoon. Tonight I got back to the creating I started yesterday before I got a horrid aura/occular migraine and then got a call that another special person in my life had died. All in all yesterday was a pretty awful day. I was still not in great shape when I went to worship this morning but I think all the prayers and support followed up by a nap helped me to enjoy the special time with my children.
