Pink Paislee - Countdown to Christmas Day 12

I'm here today to share Day 12 in the countdown to christmas! We are having great fun in our household at the moment with the escapades of a little elf! On this particular day Chippy our Elf hid ten candy canes around our house. I had taken quite a few photos so in todays post I show you a way to add a little flap to your journal so you can add extra photos or journaling.

I decided to type the journaling in a block. To do this I simply measured the width of the space I wanted to fill and cut the card stock to size. This gave me a guide to how much journaling I could also type to fit within the space.

I layered a few different elements onto this photo mat. I added some vellum from my stash and also a tag from the ephemera pack. The sweet treats tag was perfect for the theme of this page, and the cute candy cane embellishments, they were just made for this layout!

This photo is showing my little girl sharing how many candy canes she had found so far she was so proud! Here to the right of the photo you can see the tree clip, this is holding the flap containing more photos together.

To get to the hidden photos, all you simply need to do is remove the clip and lift the flap. So much fun, and a great interactive element to add to a page.
