The talented Polka Dot Party Guest Designer is Aleksandra Gadji!
Short bio: My name is Aleksandra Gadji, but you can call me Alex. I was born in Serbia, 30-something years ago. Together with my family, I moved to Sweden when I was 14 years old, and that is something I will forever be grateful for. Today, I am a mother of two beautiful children, Linnea and Adrian, and a wife to Erik who must be the most wonderful man in the world. I am all fire and temperament and he is my laid-back rock :-) We live in a yellow little house in a suburb of Stockholm. At the time being, I am at home with Adrian enjoying my maternity leave. I have only 3 months left *sobs* and after that I am going back to work as a software engineer. I work within medical technology industry, writing software for emergency care equipment, which is pretty satisfying. I love listening to audio books. In my ears right now: Game of Thrones.
How did you get started scrapbooking? I am sure you can guess what my answer is. Yep, I started scrapbooking 5 years ago, when my daughter was born. It was a perfect way to combine my urge to be creative with preservation of all the new memories she was bringing into our lives. Honestly, I never thought that this little hobby of mine will grow into an obsession. Today, I can't imagine my life without pretty papers.
What is your favorite American Crafts product? Did you really think I could choose only one?! I love the patterned papers but what would they be without all the embellishments and bits and pieces that come with every collection?! They make it so easy to scrap. My favorites collections are from Dear Lizzy and Amy Tangerine.
