Happy Friday! The Midnight Rooster December kit is now up so that means I can share my work with you. All of my projects are decidedly non-Christmas. First up, I have a two-pager using this month's kit. I chose some of my favorite images that my friend, Carrie, took back in March 2009 of the Adoption Celebration fundraiser our friends put on for us. I kept my patterned paper and embellishment choices fairly neutral with little pops of red and yellow to bring out some of the colors in the photos. I did add Basic Grey alphabet stickers in black and white to add a little more information to the photos. The Maya Road doilies are in this month's add-on kit.
I hand drew the scalloped border along the top of the layout. The black thickers this month are my FAVE!
I punched some hearts with my Fiskars punch for this layout and threaded the My Mind's Eye buttons in the kit with some twine.
"Remember this very moment" is an October Afternoon rub-on in the kit.
For my second layout this month, I scrapped an old photo of me giving my president's speech at high school graduation. Our school colors were red and black so the colors in this kit were fitting. I sprayed the black dot Bazzill cardstock with white Mister Huey by Studio Calico. It almost looks like a chalkboard effect = pretty cool for a graduation layout.
I created a little banner in the corner using The Girls' Paperie patterned paper and Martha Stewart twine.
Here's a look at some of the Jenni Bowlin stars I used as embellishments.
I cut out two "9" cards from the Crate Paper patterned paper in the kit.
For my final layout this month, I actually scrap-lifted myself! I had similar pictures of the girls with their great-grandpa and their great-grandma so I just used the same design for both.
The polka dot paper is Lily Bee Designs and the cool burlap, button and rhinestone flower is a handmade exclusive in the kit this month (although I did trim it down a bit to fit my layout).
I used a couple pink buttons from my stash on this layout.
Here's a close-up of my photo grouping and embellishments.
These darling clay pinwheels are a Midnight Rooster handmade exclusive this month and I used them on a "Thanks" card.
And now, it's time for this month's mini kit giveaway! Here's a look...
In order to be entered into my drawing this month, just leave a comment and answer this question:
