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.

MORE FROM THE BEACH CIRCA 1996
I have been (and will be) sharing more over the next few weeks some layouts that I have created using photos from a trip to the NJ Shore back in 1996. For today's layout I used a sketch for Make It Monday challenge #43 from The Memory Nest. Here's the sketch -
For my layout I rotated it 1/4 turn clockwise.
Here's my layout -
and a few fun close-ups-
I have a really hard time with 'white space'. This started out as a solid pale blue piece of cardstock. I had this new rolling stamp so I inked it up and ran it diagonally all over the page. That still didn't quite cut it for me so I got out a red Pitt pen to match the embossed red cardstock mat under the photos. I added my favorite swirls all over.
The ivory mat on top of the patterned beach paper is a piece of paper made from banana skins!
I hope you have enjoyed my layout...oh BTW the top photo was my husband and the bottom one is my half sister who is 20 years my senior.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope that you will leave a comment letting me know you were here and what you thought! Have a great day!
