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 A TRIPLE HEADER!!!
The first time I went ocean fishing with my husband on my first cast I announced I had something. As I had never been fishing they all thought I was crazy but I insisted. Finally they told me to reel it in thinking I had a starfish or something like that...but...I had flounder...not only one...I had two! A doubleheader! Well, today I have a tripleheader for you. Not fish of course, but layouts. My first layout was inspired by Stuck!Sketches January 15 challenge. Here's the sketch:
And my layout:
And here are a few close-ups of some of the fun details -
On this layout I used a lot of pop-dots to give some dimension. In the close ups you can see the items that are lifted as I notice you can see some shadows!
My next layout is uses Bev Code's awesome sketch #22 for Scrap Our Stash. In addition to the sketch it said that you MUST use sequins. It was also inspired by Miriams Crafting Blog 20th monthly challenge - Mostly White! The challenge calls for using at least 2 shades of white and having at least 50% of your project be white. I went with all of it being shades of white with a few gold, metal and beige embellishments.
Here's the Sketch -
Here is my Layout -
I went to a crop yesterday and was only able to complete 2 layouts. I spent a long time on each one - especially this one, going through the stash I had brought to find just the right elements. I don't often use white so this was a real challenge for me.
Here are some close-ups -
I loved getting to use this felt border, SEI metal and Tim Holtz pins!
Here I have some Martha Stewart ivory stretchy ric-rac and my gold/copper colored sequins.
I loved these laser cut wood frames. I picked up a batch of them awhile back and had not found a good use for them until now.
Here you can see all the different shades of white/ivory/ecru I used.

And the library is closing any minute and is not open tomorrow so I will bid you all a good night! Hope that you enjoyed see my latest creations!
I am sorry to anyone who visited today as when I arrived at the library I saw that all my photos had vanished. I know they were there as I had some wonderful comments. I HATE Internet Explorer. I have always used Chrome and never had issues but here at the library they only allow IE.
