GDT at Norwegian Papirdesign -"August"

Hello everyone! 

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday, I sure am :)) Busy busy week coming up.  
In the spring lovely Line, owner of the Norwegian online store Papirdesign contacted me asking would I like to be their GDT for September. I was ever so happy to accept her invitation of course.

HERE is the announcement on Papirdesign's blog and here comes my first layout that I have called "August";

Isn't that deep plum/rich burgundy paper the ymmiest for an autumnal page!
The reverse of it is the sweet floral one inside the chippie frame.

Its pink flowers look like they are embroidered and that's exactly
what the paper is called -  "Embroidery" 

Some new Finnabair papers under the frame. 
Quite a bit of stashraided products on my page too.

The chippie sign post is from Blue Fern Studios.
I found the photo of a Swedish town on internet.

Absolutely adore that gray & white damask paper, luscious! 
It's called "thoughts of the future" or in Norwegian
 "tanker om fremtiden".
Paired with the delightful floral "embroidery" paper 
this combo just sings to me.

Here you also see a delish pale lilac pearl swirl from Papirdesign
tucked into the bottom cluster.

There is a Papirdesign paper with little die-cuts of monthly calendars 
but it hasn't got a name. 
Popped in one for August in the top cluster.

Here you see that the rich burgundy paper also has a delicate damask pattern.

Papirdesign have THE most adorable roses in every colour of the rainbow. 
Here they are in the softest of blush pink.

The sticker alphas come in a multitude of colours, SO conveniently
matched with the papers!



Papers: Papirdesign collection Herman og Emilie "Broderi PD 12647" 
both A and B sides
  collection Lykke "Tanker om fremtiden PD 13745"

Embellies; Papirdesign lilac pearl swirl, pink roses, alpha stickers

Stash: Blue Fern Studios and Dusty Attic chipboards, acrylic paint,

I'll be back on Wednesday, 11th with my second page for the PaperHaus Magazine Fall Splendor bloghop.
