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.

IT'S BIRTHDAY TIME!!!
Today the creations I have to share with you are about birthdays past and present. First is a layout that I did of my Mom's 85th birthday. It was a treasure to find these photos as it was shortly after this time she started the downhill spiral into Alzheimer's and passed away two years later. For this layout I started out with Let's Get Sketchy Team B January Week 4 sketch -
and the selections for Picture This! January 15th challenge calling for 3 photos + black & white + lace
I am also entering this into Rochelle's Celebration challenge at Sketches4All which called for celebration theme and border punch. Here is my layout -
and some close ups -
here's my lace
and this is a double border punch topped with satin ribbon flowers
I thought these stickers would be cute but I wanted them to stand out so I stuck them onto black cardstock and then put them on with pop dots for dimension.
I thought it was fun to be able to use this cute little camera button I had which mimicked the one on the sketch.
These items are also pop dotted for dimension.
This weekend we are celebrating my son's girlfriend's 22nd birthday. I absolutely love Kathryn and know that someday she will make a wonderful daughter-in-law.
I chose sketch #382 from Mojo Monday. It called for using a tall & skinny card.
Here's the sketch -
and here is my card -
and a few close-ups-
I am also going to share these over at Word Art Wednesday for their challenge #168 Anything Goes.
I hope you have enjoyed celebrating these birthdays of the past and present with me today. Thanks for stopping by.
