Paper Issues: Sketchy Saturday

Hi there! Today we have a new sketch for you over at Paper Issues!

Pretty awesome, right? The sketch was inspired by THIS amazing layout by my dear OA DT friend Sasha Farina

And here is my take on it.

Alex Gadji - You laugh you lose

Linnea wanted to play this little game when you sit in front of each other, trying to make each other laugh. The one who laughs first loses. I just had to snap a few photos :-)

I have used the Citrus Bliss collection from Pink Paislee.

I adore the colors! They make me so happy!

Shimelle True Stories

Hi guys! I don't know if you remember me being up on the American Crafts blog with a couple of Shimelle layouts (you can find that post HERE). I loved playing with her Shimelle's first collection. Loved! And you know what? Her second, True Stories, got me going again! It's ah-mazing!!

I was lucky to get most of it from Swedish DESIGN in PAPERS and I've been sharing layouts on their blog this past month. I thought I could share them here too. So, get ready for a reeeeeally photo heavy post!

Alex Gadji - Lunch Date

The first one is about my cute little lunch date. Linnea and I was supposed to go shopping, but we quickly realized that none of us enjoy crowded stores (actually, we kinda hate them!). Instead, we had a loooong lunch. After that we quickly got her a few dresses before we went to the next place for coffee and cake :-) That's my girl!

Coffee. My precious. Definitely layout-worthy :-)

The True Stories collection is a dream come true for all coffee lovers out there!

Love his smile, his eyes, his big heart. Love his sparkle!

Alex Gadji - Sparkly Eyes

Yes, I just had to cut out the letters from one of the patterned papers and use them for my title. How could anyone resist?

Four layouts later, I am still not feeling done with True Stories. I am pretty sure that there will be more...

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
