I participated in a "Bottle Swap". Where your assigned a partner and fill a 2 liter bottle with goodies to mail out to them. I was very lucky to get a very gernerous partner (Bona @ livelovescrap on Youtube) and she gave me a "mini album" kit in the bottle she sent me. I finished putting it together and wanted to share it with you. These "mini" scrapbooks are so much fun!
This house sat right behind our garage, oh, about 4 feet away. Although they were careful it seems while they were pulling down the one wall it "snapped" in two and the wall fell on our garage.
My daughter heard it from inside our house (the garage is not attached, and a good 10 feet from the back porch). She called me at work, while I was trying to install and learn our new payroll program. I had her send me a photo on her camera, showing me how it had crushed the right corner of the garage roof.
Since nothing was "exposed" I did not rush home. I had to get the new program in and done so that the employees could get paid, and really what could I do. I called our insurance and waited for them to send someone out to access the damage. When I finally arrived home the workers came to me and explained what had happened.
They apologized and the owner of the company called and assured us they would make good on the repairs. So they had their builder over stripping the shingles and repairing the roof. Just one more thing going on here.

I thought I would share a "mini" scrapbook album I did a month or so ago. I swore I wouldn't scrapbook, I don't even like to have my picture taken, a trait shared by my children, yet I love these little altered albums.
I am feeling much better and should be back to posting now that things have settled down. I hope you enjoy seeing this video. I bought the mini kit from a YouTube video I saw by RoseS915. For those who want to try making one of these type scrapbooks and do not want to have to invest in all the supplies this is the economical way to go.
I will be putting together a couple of my own. I think it will be a great way to share and use up the many "extras" I have collected.
