Does the Elf on the Shelf visit your home at Christmas? He does at ours and I wanted to take the time to record the special places my boys have found him each morning leading up to Christmas. Because we live in Australia I wanted to give it a bit of an Aussie flavour so you may notice some very "Aussie" situations where he was found. I adored using a couple of Heidi Swapp Memory Files for My project, teaming it up with Pink Paislee's City Sidewalks collection.
I used many of Heidi's digi words that I cut with my silhouette Cameo and sprayed with Tinsel and Gold Lame Colorshine.
This is what the folder looks like when its open.
Inside I started with a Mini Memory File. I typed up words and phrases from the book that I loved, printed them onto some Vintage Chic pattern paper cut them out then scattered them throughout my project.
Yummy Color Magic paper spritzed with Sweet Cherry and Gold Lame Color Shine.
Here I have used some divided sheet protectors from Pink Paislee.
I wanted to store a letter my eldest wrote to James our elf so I grabbed a red envelope and stored it inside.
Love this glassine bag from Greatest View, I cut a hole in it using my fiskars circle cutter for a peekaboo effect.
the page then lifts out...
Here I used a piece of strong acetate for fun effect.
The bottom of my Memory File.

I know my boys will treasure this once they are older and just a little bit wiser (wink!)
