Spelling with Elements

Theodore Gray, creator of the Periodic Table Table, has come out with new element banners.  The idea is to spell words or phrases using only the one- or two-letter element abbreviations, then illustrate the spelling with photos from the poster of his table. You can try your own name here:

Gray says about 30-40% of English words/names work this way, and you can choose
between versions where the letters are pretty obvious and ones where they are small,
like in the poster. 

Personally I like that variation because it makes the thing into a bit of a puzzle: It seems like a random collection of unrelated photos until you figure out what connects them.
