Love Elsie, Cody | Mid Week Mojo #49

Hello scrappy girls! Can you believe it’s time for Mid Week Mojo once again? I’d been dying to scrapbook photos of my most recent running adventure, so I begged Melodee to let me work with today’s steal, the Cody Collection by Love Elsie. Even though the Cody collection is slightly more sports related, I really loved the colors and thought they would go great with the photos from my adventure.

Because I had so many photos that I wanted to capture on one layout, I decided to challenge myself with a sketch housing 11 photos.

I actually even decided to squeeze three more onto the layout than I made for myself.

I admit that I’m a true sucker for the whimsical feeling of the Love Elsie collections. The chipboard letters are some of my favorites!

I also love the little chipboard embellishments to add that finishing touch.

Now I’m sure you’ve all been waiting to find out who the lucky random winners to our online crop challenges are — wait no longer!

Love Elsie Collection Kit | Mid Week Mojo #39

It’s true. I squealed when Melodee showed me today’s steal, the KI Memories—Love Elsie—Cody and Zoe collections. I squealed yet again when I knew I’d be working with these collections for this weeks Mid Week Mojo. I honestly couldn’t decide if I wanted to do a “boy” or a “girl” layout so I compromised and did a boy layout using the girl papers.  :)

I positively love how perfectly the Zoe collection worked for the photos that I took of my little guy coloring Easter eggs. The artsy and whimsical feel of Elsie Flannigans style is a favorite of mine and paired perfectly my three-year-old’s artistic way of dyeing eggs.

I included several photos but wanted to keep it one page, so I re-sized the photos in Photoshop so that they would work with the design of the sketch.

Today’s collections both come with some amazing embellishments. I used the alpha rub-ons from the Zoe collection to create my title.

Then I used some of the chipboard and rubber embellishments to finish off the page.

Now for the most exciting part of Mid Week Mojo, our weekly winner! Congrats to Kelly Marks.
