As promised, Fran dropped off her sample of what you will be doing in her Prima Fairy Bell Minin Album class on Saturday, May 25th. The challenge for me was to capture the beauty of her creation with the camera. The photos I have for you do not truly show the creativity that Fran has put into this album. There are flip pages, pockets, hidden pull out cards, and a creative way that the album folds and unfolds. When you see the actual sample, the first thing that will happen is a smile of wonder will cross your face. If you have the time, please come by the Lazer Den to see for yourself. As of this writing, the class is almost full, with one seat remaining. The following is a list those items you will need to bring to the class...it's a long one.... paper trimmer, scissors, scoring tool (aka bone folder), Scor-Pal or equal; Crop-a-dile, Tacky Liquid Glue or very strong 1/4" tape, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain optional, Sponge applicator or similar for the ink, Glossy Accents, Crystal Stickles, ruler, pencil or pen, Border punch of your choice (Fran used Fiskars Scallop in the sample), tweezers and a wire cutter. I told you it was a long list....The cost of the class is $28.00.

I tell people that I never know from day to day what we might find ourselves engraving. Did you know that we can engrave rocks? Polished river rocks ... that is. You can find them at the local nursery's and they come in 5 pound bags. They are polished and the engraving will be be white. I think it makes a perfect surprise gift. People can use them in the garden, a fish tank, or just as a paper weight on a person's desk.
I'm sure that you can come up with other uses. I think they're kind of cool.
That's all for now... I'll see you tomorrow
