A Farewell to Rooster

Tomorrow is the official reveal day for the Midnight Rooster March kit. With that, my term on the design team has also come to an end.  I had a lovely time creating with these beautifully coordinated kits with all the fun eclectic pieces over the last year.  I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Tobi and Janelle for the past wonderful year.  Here's to continued success of Midnight Rooster! Now onto a couple of layouts I created with the March kit. 
Last spring, DH bought these cheap kites for $1 each at Target.  We got a few uses out of them before they fell apart.  It was rather difficult to get decent photos, besides, we were in our tiny tiny backyard :) 


The kite on the layout is cut with the Create a Critter cartridge. I know Deana will want that one, it has clouds in it!
In the second layout, this picture of Second Child was taken in the Sculpture Garden last summer. It was jut a tiny bit out of focus and as a result, she looks so soft and sweet, which is f--a--a-ar from reality, lol. 
I misted the cardstock using Shimmerz Coloringz Mama Sings the Blues and a template from the Crafter's Workshop: Bricks. I also journaled along the little banner. 
This wraps up the project sharing today.  I am officially under the weather, sigh...  To make matters worse, we are headed to an indoor water park on Friday.  So I'll be sick and trying to squeeze into a swimsuit.  Oh yeah, it's gonna be a fun time for sure, lol!  Have a good night friends!

You've done wonderful things with their kits. And your pages today are fun and fancy free. Despite your illness, I hope you have a tad bit of fun at the waterpark.
