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.
This layout was In Memory of a very special lady, Teri Ingersoll, I met her last year at Robins Scrap Nest Bee Happy Bee Scrappy Crop at the Carlisle Inn. A few days after returning home Teri passed away suddenly the day after her 56th birthday. She had long term health issues all her life but it is still way too young to pass. (Last year was a hard year for young people - I lost several friends and family members in their 50's.) She was so sweet. Here she is holding an Eiffel Tower made for her by Cassondra Gloden of Infinity Engraving.
And while we are thinking Eiffel Tower I also did this cute little tag -
Next I am sharing a Pocket Letter I created about my current state - Delaware for a swap of all the states. It will go postal tomorrow and in return I will receive one from Kentucky!
I also did a few tags...here is one for an 'All About Me' challenge at Paper Doll Trading.
And this was done 'just because' so that I could use the fun Cheery Lynn die that I had just received!
I can't believe it has been a month since my last blog post. Moving has really taken a toll on me physically, mentally, emotionally and creatively. I am still in boxes floor to ceiling as the living space promised to be 900 - 910 square feet and turned out to be 812.5 square feet. Nothing fits. And I made the huge mistake of allowing a man to assist in packing (the same one that insisted that the living space was 910 square feet when I said I knew my furniture coming out of an 850 square foot apartment was not going to fit in there!) - food mixed with cleaning goods, shoes in separate boxes (yes one shoe in one and it's mate in another)! So you get the picture... I have furniture in the hallway and basement. And it has been near impossible finding anything. I have had to replace so much because I still can't unearth things from the mass of chaos.
I was able to locate a small sampling of my creative supplies and was able to work on some doll projects for some swaps I am in as well as for a project I have wanted to start since the summer.
This is my Fairy Queen. The Fairy Queen was a figure from folklore who was believed to rule the fairies. Based on Shakespeare's influence in English-speaking cultures she is often named Titania or Mab.
I also have created a few dolls that I have not decided yet how to mount. I may put them in an art journal or on an altered canvas after I do a few more.
The first is inspired by Erte's Alphabet Lady.

The next was inspired by Erte's Rose Dancer.

And my library time is nearly up so for now I will say farewell! Hopefully I will be able to create a bit more this evening and share again soon!
