More Midnight Rooster Projects

Did I mention I killed that Midnight Rooster kit? I know it was my job this month to kill it but it was really easy to do! Here are 2 more of my projects - the mini album:
This is small - a little larger than a wallet sized photo. I made it from a trading card page protector sheet - cut into 3 strips and sew together to make an accordian album: 
The album documents a day out with co-workers last year, on our annual holiday outing. Last year happened to be a trip to Clinton, NJ - one of the most charming places in New Jersey. Back in the day I actually worked in Clinton and took all that charm for granted. I'm glad I got to go back as a tourist! At Christmas, it's like stepping into a Currier and Ives image. 
 here's the back:

I mentioned yesterday that Tobi includes some adorable handmade embellishments - here's a little item I made with a felt & fabric item that was in the kit:
It's a little wallet to hold straight pins - it's tiny, about 3" x 2" wide: 
I'll be back tomorrow with my last 2 projects and on Thursday I'll have some Pebbles, Inc. cards to share.

Still no oven. Repair guy is coming today and hopefully will tell us it's an easy fix. Otherwise our Christmas Eve feast will be a pizza party this year!
