Wow.  Do you all feel like it’s a smidgin like Christmas around here with all of the excitement over who the winner of our amazing Echo Park collections will be?  Do you have those butterflies just like you did on your first date?  (Well, if it was a *good* date anyway).  :)

Before announcing our lucky winner (although I’m sure you have all scanned forward to see if that lucky girl is you), I just want to take a minute to personally thank each and every one of you for being such an amazing part of our ScrapbookSteals family.  Each Wednesday it’s a true joy to me to bring to you a new sketch to help offer that springboard of inspiration.  Never in 21 weeks of my wildest imagination would I have dreamed that Mid Week Mojo would be such a huge and amazing success.  There isn’t a week that goes by that I don’t gasp out loud in amazement at your creations, literally laugh out loud at a humorous moment captured and so successfully document for history sake, shed a tear at touching journaling, or call up Melodee because I have to make sure that she doesn’t miss a particular layout!  We.  Love.  You. Thank you, thank you and thank you again for continuing to be such an amazing part of our every day lives.  I talk about you all to my husband as if you were my sisters (because sadly I wasn’t blessed with any…only older very non-scrappy brothers, so thanks for being my girls!)  You should all be incredibly pleased with yourselves at the amazing work that you have done.  Well done.  All of you.  You are ALL winners in our book!

So without further delay, the lucky Random.Org winner of the Echo Park collections is commenter #42…

….and that would be none other than Jen Collins!

Jen has done such an amazing job with all of her creations.  Jen sent me an email with a link to all of her layouts on Shutterfly but I didn’t want to possibly ruin the surprise for her by downloading the images just in case Shutterfly were to send her a notification, so if you want to see all of her amazing creations, be sure to check out our Facebook Fan page.

I did however manage to rummage up her most recent layout posted on Facebook.

I love that Jen manipulated the sketch to work for her needs, ad I LOVE those photos!

So how do you all feel…..ready to begin our next round of Mojo’s?  I know I am!  I do believe that our next 10 weeks of mojo’s will entitle us to be Ruby Club members!  I know you are probably all on scrapbook burnout (well those of you that were really cranking them out this past week), and I know the Holiday’s are upon us, but be sure to keep up the great work, because as with our Emerald club….if you have completed all layouts 1- 30, you will be entered three times for our next big drawing for the Ruby club.  It seems to be the fairest way to try and reward everyone that makes the effort to get them all done!

I am so in love with My Minds Eye, that the hardest part about this weeks sketch for me was selecting which of Today’s Amazing Steals to use!  I wanted to keep this weeks sketch moderately simple as time is truly at a premium right now so I settled on a 1 page, 5×7 design.

I have had this photo of my Tessa floating around my work room for MONTHS, and it worked so perfectly with the My Minds Eye, Little Miss Muffet, that I had to finally put it to paper.

I love this kit for so many reasons.  The rich colors, the die cuts and also the stickers!

Now take a deep breath (and a day or two off if you need to), and show us what you make for MWM #21.  Remember to post your projects to our Facebook Fan Page or other online source such as your personal blog and leave a link on this blog post by next Monday at midnight MST to be eligible for our weekly prize drawing.

Now I will leave you with the lucky weekly winner of MWM #20, Melissa Dehne!

I have to give Melissa huge props for scrapping Easter in December!  Not an easy task!  I love the cheerful, springy colors on her layout.  She always does such a great job.
Congrats again girls!  Jen and Melissa, if you can send Melodee an email to orders@scrapbooksteals.com she will send out your prizes.

Thanks again so much girls!

As always….happy scrappin’!
