Midnight Rooster REVEAL

The December kit from Midnight Rooster was my first one as a new design team member!
Yippeeee!!
And it did not disappoint!
This kit is filled with {among other things} fabulous Pink Paislee, October Afternoon, Glitz, Crate Paper, and My Mind's Eye patterned papers and a fun Dear Lizzy glitter alpha from American Crafts.
And I made a bunch of stuff with it!
________________________________
This first layout is an old picture of me and Stu after a run in Birmingham a few years ago.
I didn't take the picture.
I don't even know who did.
But someone pointed it out to me on the Birmingham.com website.
I pulled it off the computer so the quality is grainy but it is still one of my favorite pics nonetheless!

{I added the brads & string from my stash}

This is the road that leads up to our neighborhood.
These trees are always sooooo pretty when the seasons are changing!
So I scrapped about them. {I added the brads from my stash here too}
_________________________________
Lee took his brother to Las Vegas for his 21st birthday back in October.
{I was not invited}
They were there for a long weekend and did not take one single picture.
Shame on them! {I added the strip of bling from my stash}

This next one is just a layout to brag about a new personal best!

And then I made a card for good measure!
I couldn't resist with this playing card paper!
:)So there you have it!
My first creations with Midnight Rooster goodness!

Happy Thursday!!
Be sure to check back here tomorrow for something fun that will be going on for the next 12 days!

We don't always need to have pictures for our layouts, right? I'm off to check out Midnight Rooster. What a fun name.

What a fab first reveal, Gretchen! :-)
I especially love the design of the changing seasons one, the idea of the "ace" card, and the ways you used the Girls' Paperie banner paper...awesome stuff!

Love the card! I'll tell you right now I'm going to steal the idea.

Love the Las Vegas page and the card- fabulous! The running page is great- if you ever find the shooter I'm sure they can sell you a high rez for a small fee- especially if he's a stringer for the local paper.
