Today got off to a very exciting start when my daughter Paige saw that our Elf on the Shelf – Ralph – had returned. He came bearing gifts, a big basket full of wrapped books for her to pick one from each night for us to read together. Paige doesn’t remember that Ralph actually brought a lot of these books last year – lucky Mummy!

To mix it up a little this year I am using a divider in my album and devoting a whole section just to the Elf and his antics. The pages so far look like this:

The first book, this photo is printed to fit a 3×4 slot.

For the ‘daily’ section of the album, today looked like this:

On the left side is another 6×8 photo with a digital overlay. The little tag has ‘Christmas word’ stickers on it, from Pretty Little Studio.

On the right:

A glittery shaker pocket and some machine stitching onto a journal card at the top. I am going to go back and redo the journaling – my writing is too scratchy and I can’t look past it, these cards will end up typed.

Edited to add: I have typed up a card now and am much happier with it. The font is called Minya and was a free download.


Here are some close ups:
