Meet Ms. October!

Our October Pin-Up, Hey Hey Paula, has fabulous coloring and design skills!

Shall we get to know her a bit better?

Here's her interview!

1. Brief info about yourself, including your name, where you live, your family (if you want), etc.
My name is Paula Riley. I am married to my college sweetheart, mom to a grown son, nana to twin eight-year old granddaughters, and a retired Reading Specialist. I'm loving retirement. There's more time for family and friends and my hobbies which are reading, knitting and stamping!

2. How long have you been stamping and/or crafting?
I have enjoyed crafts my entire life. I began seriously stamping about six years ago and now I'm addicted!

3. What are your favorite Bombshell sets and why?
Bombshell Angel is my favorite. I love her classic pin-up look. Mermaid Treasure is also a favorite because I love the sexy mermaid!

4. What kind of projects do you like to do?
Mostly cardmaking.

5. What are your favorite coloring mediums?
I love my Copics!

6. Describe your crafting "style".

I never really thought about it. I'm not sure that I have a style. It depends on the stamps I'm using and/or the project I'm working on.

7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
All of the above!

8. Do you have any other hobbies?
When I'm not stamping, I enjoy knitting and reading on my Kindle.

9. Free for all including little facts, etc. about you.
I don't cook - I know how to, but my husband does all the cooking. He retired before me so he started doing the cooking while I was working. When I retired, I let him keep on doing it! We've been married for 42 years!

Here are three of Paula's favorite Bombshell cards!

Now that you've seen some of Paula's work, I know you'll want to see her Bombshell Gallery and visit her blog!
