Summer, full speed ahead...

We had a record high in temperature today, 94 degrees or something...  It was very unpleasant when I went for my jog, but at least I did it.  While there is no point but to concede defeat to the cold, I resolve to conquer the heat and humidity! 

Well, it's a big day for the Midnight Rooster as it officially kicks of the Rooster blog.  Yours truly gets to do its first posting.  Well, it isn't the layout I'm showing here, you'll have to head on over to the Midnight Rooster blog to see the layout I did post based on Becky Fleck's sketch :) While you are there, how about sign up to follow or subscribe in Reader? Not that I'm demanding or anything like that.

I used a doily from the First Midnight Run kit as a mask and misted the cream cardstock.  I really am gaga over misting :)  And the adorable banner, oh yeah, took hours to make, no doubt, by someone else!!!  lol.  It is a part of the main kit.

Lastly, I want to share a sneak peek with you of the upcoming Anthologies kit "Take Flight."  I hope you are ready, because it is a BEAUTY!!

That fabric banner is adorable, but I'm really loving your use of SRM Stickers on there, too! SO CUTE!

It was about 94 here yesterday, too. We went from a weirdly cool & rainy month of May to the 90's. So much for Spring... :-(
