Meet Me In The Sunshine

Hi there! Making a quick stop to share this layout I made using Amy Tangerine's Rise & Shine collection.

Alex Gadji - Meet me in the sunshine

I feel blessed to have a place like this just 15 minutes bike ride from home. And it is only one of many beautiful places we have just around the corner. I love our small, spontaneous picnics ♥

Off to check the cake in the oven now... I've been baking like a maniac these past couple of days. Someone is having a birthday party this weekend! Someone who is already turning seven! Can't believe it!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

My Happy

So, two updates in one day... well, that certainly doesn't happen often! :-)

I made this one for DESIGN in PAPERS, using the Citrus Bliss collection from Pink Paislee. This is one of my favorite photos right now! Just look at his smile! I love seeing them this happy together ♥

Butterfly kisses...

I really like these instagram kits from Pink Paislee! Even though they are made to fit in an instagram album, they are just as perfect for a layout!

Yes. These two are my happy.

Big Ride

Have your kids ever tried a balance bike? That thing is amazing!!! The little man has had his for a couple of months and he is loving it! It won't take long before he is ready to add pedals.

I took this photo on one of his first rides. He was so proud and happy to have such a big, two wheels bike :-)

October Afternoon: Playmobil Fun Park

One of my favorite places to visit with kids is Playmobil Fun Park in Germany. It could be because we are huge Playmobil fans in our family :-) The kids love it!

This big pirate ship instantly became our son's favorite. I was happy to snap a looooot of pictures knowing that I had OA's Treasure Map collection waiting for me back home :D

Here are a few closeups...

Have a lovely day everyone!

Paper Issues: It's all about the face

Hi there!! Long time no see! At least not in here :-)

If you are following me on Instagram (@agadji), you probably know that I've been on a super long and super amazing road trip with my family. I haven't touched a single paper in almost a month! I needed something to get me going again, and what's better than an issue from Paper Issues? The current one is called "It's all about the face" and it is sponsored by the PI shop itself. One lucky winner will get a $20 gift card, so be sure to head over to the PI blog and read more.

When I read what the issue was about, I instantly thought of this photo of my daughter. She got her face painted at a friend's birthday party. Of course, I had to photograph her the second she got home :-) Isn't she beautiful?

Alex Gadji - Lovely

I love this photo so much that I had to go big with it. I didn't use much embellishments either... I don't think a layout can get simpler that this.

Alex Gadji - Lovely closeup2

I have used Bella Blvd Color Chaos polka dot transparency as well as different chipboard embellishments and enamel dots.

The glittery word "lovely" is Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss.

I hope you feel inspired to play along with our current issue! Do I have to remind you that the prize is a $20 GC to the best store out there! ;-) And as always, feel free to use my code ALEX20 at checkout to get 20% off your entire order.

Thanks for stopping by!
