Today’s steal, the Lily Bee Design Hand Made collection, came at the perfect time! Last week I coerced my two oldest daughters and their BFFs to go to the lake for a photo shoot. Without any coordinating on their part, they all managed to wear clothing that works perfectly with Hand Made! Gotta love when that happens! It was such a fun evening and these papers are so perfect to preserve this amazingly fun, complicated, carefree, and silly time in their lives.

The Hand Made collection was such a pleasure to work with. I have always loved the Lily Bee collections for their bright, happy and clean designs, and I really love how this week’s Mid Week Mojo layout turned out!

I wanted to make this layout super girly, without overbearing the fun photo of these sweet girls. To achieve that effect, I used my Cameo to cut out a flower lace background. I didn’t want it to overwhelm, so I used the same paper as the background and layered it on top to create a subtle floral design. This same idea could easily be achieved by using a die cut as a mask and misting the background paper. I then used some strips of the fun papers and added some of the die cut embellishments to all a little color and design.

I absolutely adore the note card embellishments that come with today’s steal. They worked out perfectly to create my title block.

One of the note cards also worked out perfectly for my journaling block.

Well done Lily Bee! I have already used up scraps of this collection to create another layout from this fun night. Such a fantastic collection!
