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.

A DAY IN THE PARK! A LAUGH! MORE FROM THE BEACH 1996! and A PROMISE!
Last weekend Thomas found this punk show he wanted to see in a big park in Philadelphia. It was a beautiful day so I grabbed a pad of watercolor paper and a bunch of mediums to play with. Here's a bit of what came out of my afternoon... (please remember that I do NOT have any raw drawing talents so this was actually a big deal!)
This was the spot I ended up sitting in...
Derwent Inktense blocks
And now I have a funny to share - Is this not simply THE cutest?
So first I will tell you a little bit about the call in case you also want to submit a creation of your own. Let's Get Sketchy is a sketch blog owned by Brenshevia Baker, previously owner of the Ning site Colorful Creations. She is very talented and a lot of fun to work with. As a DT on this site you will need to complete 2 layouts per month, comment on all entries to the challenges and post the challenges on your blog.
Full details can be found in the post at: http://letsgetsketchy.blogspot.com/2015/07/lets-get-sketchy-design-team-call.html?spref=fb
There were 2 sketches to choose from. Here is the one I deciced to use.
and here is my layout -

I loved this saying and thought it was perfect... after all, not many of us get to truly enjoy a really rainy day...but getting an opportunity to see this most spectacular rainbow reminded me that if you are not ready to enjoy all your minutes you could miss out on something as amazing as this rainbow!
The circle was cut from a wonderful clear acrylic sheet with tiny lavender dimensional dots.
Here you can see the 2 fun embossing folders I used if you can pull your eyes away from that spectacular rainbow!
