This mini book was based on my trip to Gay Paree last October and its packed with every gory detail. I havent laughed so hard for so long in all my life but you can bet the golden company of Jane Egan Cresswell mixed with Jane Dean, Gill Watson and Bev Stevenson is a sure fire way to ripping your spleen open from excessive snorts. The Parisians hated us (isnt that the way?) becuase we had so much fun. Is such a crime punishable by "I dooo not un-a-stand yooooooooooo" when we tried, in our bestest french to ask where the ribbon shop was. Jane dressed in a stripey shirt and beret still creases me.... the best memories are for the world to share now that have put them in a Love Elsie packetty packaging booklet.I also made these layouts using the stuff in the kit (paint is the only stuff from my own tool box that I used). I am generally a pink fan (having a girl!!!) but I much prefer Toby colours and its handy having a travel theme seeing as I have so much to scrap on my past years jaunts. The kits have sold out I think but next months promises to be just as chockaGotta go, curried almond soup is calling. YUMMY xx

Do you love Elsie? I love both the sense of the word. Her products and the good lady herself.
Modscraps kit this month is chockablock full of either Toby or Roxie. And not only did I love making these layouts but I had the best time turning packaging into a book. So much so Im keeping all pretty sticker/rubber pretty packs for other books (currently working on Making Memories glitter sticker packaging). What helps with Elsies packaging in that it has groovy graphy designs that you can simply add stuff to but I covered the reverse of the inlay sheet. The book below is made from packaging and the kit content. I think the only additional stuff I used (not in the kit) was a book ring, some paint and some eyelets to bind with.
