Midnight Rooster August Kit Reveal and Giveaway

I hope you are excited to see the August Midnight Rooster kit, because it's bright, it's fun, and it's vivacious! Oh dear, for a second, I thought I was describing myself there. ROTFL!!

It is time for another Midnight Rooster Mini Kit Giveaway:





















I'll be back from my little road trip soon and I thought I would share one layout using Midnight Rooster August kit. That flower came in the kit. I just love ready-made hand-made embellishments. It's so fun.

I used new SRM Stickers Summertime on the journaling blocks here.  And that cute camera is from myStamp Box's Snapshots.

Before I go, time for more pictures from CHA, and yes, mega-celebrity Tim Holtz and Yours Truly!  Laina and I stood in line to get his autographed new embossing folders.  When he got to me, he said "Oh yeah, yesterday in the cafeteria!"  I was surprised, "You remembered me?!"  "Of course I did" was his answer. It was almost embarrassing.  We saw Tim in the cafeteria over lunch my first day at CHA.  He sat one chair away from me.  After furtively glancing at him throughout the meal, I finally got the courage to ask for a photo, and he remembered!!  Probably from all those not-so-subtle glances and stares. LOL.
Now for the fun question to be entered into this month's Midnight Rooster's mini-kit giveaway...  please tell me what product from CHA are you most anxious to get your hands on. Thank you and later!
