Well my night just got a whole lot better!
Thank you both for the tips on the mesh tape. Rob got some at Home Depot but I wasn't sure if it was the right stuff so I didn't open it.
The neighbor finally came home so the dog isn't howling anymore. We had the radio cranked up and I could still hear him over the music. As soon as I heard their garage door opening Rob went down there to talk to them. It went on for nearly 4 hours. The guy apologized and hopefully he does something about it. I feel bad for that dog.
I finally finished the layout I'd been trying to work on. I just gave up on having a title at all. So many of my pages don't have titles. Maybe I can go back and add one when I get my cameo.
I got the engraver papers earlier this week but they didn't have the tape there. I don't think they had the brads either. I'll have to double check what I bought.
