The Day After FNWF

I decided to start the night with some paper-craft instead of the usual stitching.
I had already made one mini album and wanted to do another as a stocking filler or just to have on hand in case!

The top one is the finished one with all the inserts ready for photos and the bottom one what I did last night and is almost done. I can't find any suitable flowers in my stash and I still have to attach the photo mat on the backs of the inserts or slide out pages. I also need to tie some ribbons on the small tabs and add a bit of bling here and there. Might finish it off tonight. I used papers from my stash from the last one I made.

Some of the pages with little pockets for journalling cards.  

And this is the photo mat with photo. Mr B in his Santa suit! The grandchildren are getting suspicions it may not be the real Santa! I think he does a pretty good impersonation! It gives me quite a giggle to see him out there in the North Queensland heat waiting for the kids to arrive!

And what would Friday Night with Friends be without a little stitching. This is another block almost finished from my "Cake Walk" quilt. I did want to do a little more on it but ran out of time and steam and no amount of coffee was going to keep me awake.
