Paper Issues: Chalk One Up to Your Own Style

So, who's ready for a new issue from Paper Issues?! Me, me!

The issue is called Chalk One Up to Your Own Style and it is sponsored by the Paper Issues store itself, who is giving away a $20 gift certificate to one lucky winner. So if you feel like shopping (and who is not???), be sure to stop by the blog and play along! 

As usual, there are many different ways to interpret an issue. And to mix it up even further, there is a FREE cut file and a set of chalkboard printables for grabs! Both of them designed by my sweet friend Danielle de Konink. I have used one of the printables (x4) on my layout.

I cut out the middle of the chalked frames and placed them on top of my photos using 3d-dots.

The colorful chevron is wood drop stickers from Pinkfresh Studio. Eeeee! ♥

I have used the Rise & Shine collection by Amy Tangerine, which you can find HERE in the shop.

We snapped these photos while waiting for Annie to begin. I love our little "girls' days out" ♥ This time we went out for a lunch and a movie. She was singing the whole way back home :-)

I hope you will join us and play along with this issue! Remember, you could win a $20 GC to the best store out there! And if you do (or if you just feel like shopping anyway), you can always use ALEX20 at checkout to get 20% off your order. Not bad at all ;-)

Thanks for stopping by!

Bella Blvd Color Chaos

Hi there! As usual, I am such a slacker when it comes to updating my own blog... Come over and follow me on Instagram (@agadji). I am much more active there :-)

Anyway, anyone else out there madly, deeply in love with new Bella Blvd? Eeeeeek! Be still my heart! I've made a card and a layout so far and I just want MORE! It's adorable and it makes me happy!
