Laura Elaine specializes in custom-made scrapbooks, and has a passion for documenting race accomplishments She and her hubby are both runners. He has completed four marathons (two in Boston) and she is currently training for her fourth half marathon. She started her business, after she wanted a way to document all of their memories. NOW SHE CAN HELP YOU DOCUMENT YOURS!

I was sooooo overjoyed when she wanted to work with me on a chipboard album for my marathon next month! Whether you are a seasoned runner or a newbie, Laura Elaine will work with you to create the perfect scrapbook! Or shop her Etsy shop for a number of pre-made scrapbook pages and albums. She has items for the Disney Princess Half Marathon, Boston Marathon, New York City Marathon and so much more. If you don't find a race that you've completed or are training for ... contact her regarding your own CUSTOM ALBUM!!!

Photos will easily slide under all stickers, tags, and embellishments that may be on the pages. All products used to make this album are acid- and lignin-free and the scrapbook was made in a pet- and smoke-free home.

Check out some of these great items in her Etsy Shop:

Boston Marathon Premade Scrapbook - $14.99

Disney Princess Half Marathon Two-Page Spreads - $9.99

Create your own Running Scrapbook (12x12 album included) - $49.99

This is a 12" x 12" scrapbook containing 10 premade pages to document your running and/or biking race accomplishments! It is a great way to display race bibs, newspaper clippings, pictures, and to keep track of your times. There is room for 4 races (2 pages per race) plus a bonus last page with room for more pictures. The album itself IS INCLUDED (not shown in the photos on her site), is a top-loading hardcover album, and is able to accomodate additional pages, should you choose to add more

Laura Elaine offers VERY REASONABLE PRICES & SHIPPING RATES!! I think you will agree.

As I mentioned, Laura Elaine is also preparing for her next half marathon.

This is my very own

2010 Madison Marathon Chipboard Album

Complete with customized colors, running theme,

personalization, date of event and so much more!

Laura Elaine checked out the website for my upcoming marathon

and customized the entire album with the marathon

color theme! How great is this going to look

with my photos?

Great spots everywhere for photos and journaling.

She'll totally personalize it for you and your journey!
I loooooove personalization!

Super fun embellishments and stickers

throughout the entire album.

I giggled at all the fun running-themed 3-dimensional

stickers: energy bar, water bottle, time display ...

You'll totally dig this!

Now all I have to do is finish this thing ... and do it well!
She even included a spot on the last page
for my finishers photo and finishing details!

The album is a beauty ... and very well assembled.
The chipboard pages are sturdy and will hold up
well, even with my kiddos flipping through the album!

I'll be sure to post again, once I've finished my 26.2 mile journey
and can fill the album with photos from the race!!!
