Midnight Rooster November Give-away

This month,  Midnight Rooster brings you "Whip-poor-will."  How is that for a funky and cute name? :)  Personally, I find the color selection of this kit bold and striking.  So I tried to work off of that initial feeling and created this layout.  The purple foam letters may seem unusual, but I love the look.  I painted the Pink Paislee elements with Shimmerz Pearls in Grammie Berrie.  Oh I miss our raspberries so much...


As usual, with the kit reveal, we move onto the giveaway portion of this program...   I'm kinda in a hurry to get out of here to the Body Pump class.  Tell me if you have checked out my tutorial using the Marvy border punch in the post below? Thank you!  A winner will be selected randomly before the end of the day tomorrow, and once announced, the winner will have 48 hours to contact me.

I saw your tutorial and loved it. I always have problems doing the corners! Love the bright colors in the layout! I personally don't miss raspberries. We use to grow them. Too much time in picking them. Oh, and yes, you have to be so careful not to squeeze them. I much prefer picking strawberries. Thanks for the chance to win the "mini", keeping my fingers crossed!

We had a Whip-poor-will at camp a few summers ago. Boy that bird was a bug. It sounded like an alarm LOL
