moto photo scavenger hunt...


hello friends...
have you been playing along with the #heidiholidayfotofind?

i have been having fun seeing all the posts on instagram with that tag sharing your scavenger hunt finds. it is so festive and fun and i feel like sometimes i am a guest in your own home as you share your stories about your finds.

today i share my find for today, december 5... #tree.

but let me back up a bit...
heidi's media team has taken to challenge everyone a little further with this scavenger hunt...
and that is to take those finds...
print them out...
and document the story.

i have been playing along with the rest of the team and using the Believe Memory File Mini Album (o.k...can we say stinkin' adorable?) documenting my finds.

would you like a peek?

i adore the different size pages and die cuts found in this book.
the first tags start with my day one. the numbered die cut stars from the Believe Ephemera pack will designate each day.

for the most part my photos will really be moto photos...or pictures taken on my phone.
that is what i did for the first days clue...'so it begins'... sharing this year's advent boxes that we open up every day with an activity or treat. again, a fun fun family tradition.

this mini album is a great canvas for your mixed media touches. since i seem to be obsessed with gold right now, i went for the gold stencil and edging technique on these pages.

and since it is so true that each little thing in life has a story behind it...

i was sure to tell the story about this particular tree and just journaled right on the page.

i know it's a busy time of year...
but there are so many rich stories to be told...
