The rest of the story

I had started a mini album for my pictures of our Stocking Pals Exchange way before the event and finally finished the pages at the Ruskin crop. I had replaced the smaller sized page protectors with precut mat board for more sturdier pages and more texture. Now I have to find the pictures of everyone and their pals from others' web albums as it seems I am missing quite a few. I have all the embellishments ready to go including a tiny silky stocking I found a couple of years ago at Jo's or Mike's. I used red velvet paper for the back of the book and it is fun to hold! lol

The second album I finished at the Ruskin retreat was the one for my family Christmas. I found this darling little gate at a boutique in Dunedin when G-a, Barb, Jill and I went shopping just before the Stocking Pals Exchange. I added some gold highlights to the gate and used the stencil as an embellishment adding Krylon inks and others. Now to print my pictures out and put them where they go with my memories of the days and events.

The computer tech guy comes tomorrow morning to see what he can do about Minnie's non-functioning space bar. Hope it does not take him to long as we are paying by the hour but long range, his prices beat all the others we called. He said he had done three space bar problems with the same model as Minnie and was able to correct two of them in five minutes. That is never my luck but wouldn't that be nice?
Keep your fingers crossed for me, please and have a great day! Happy Friday!
