The pink elephant challenge #13

The Pink Elephant have a great challenge this week we want you to show us your layouts using extra photos with pockets, flippers, accordion minis, or any other fun creative way to add lots of extra photos to your layouts.
My daughter, when she was younger, always wrote notes and left them for me to find. Some were gorgeous sweet notes, some were her dobbing on her brothers (mainly Aden) and some were her pleading her case if she thought she had been unfairly treated! She often put forward a fair argument and I would have to rethink my actions!  I have kept them all and later, much later, when she is whinging about HER children I might bring them out and we can have a read!
I have sewn some scrap material into little envelopes to house the notes (some are personal). I had fun with this challenge! anytime I get my sewing machine is a good thing.
