I am speechless.

I was making my daily trip to Facebook at lunch today and noticed that one of my friends had posted this on my wall.  I am incredibly humbled and absolutely speechless.  I *love* October Afternoon's products and was so excited to see some of my favorites in Midnight Rooster's June kit!  And, I am so happy that a couple of my Midnight Rooster projects have been noticed recently on the OA blog -- great press for us!

On a side note, I know how incredibly discouraging it can be to submit over-and-over-and-over and not even receive a "Thanks for your submission."  To be honest, I had pretty much given up and decided that, if some of my favorite companies had galleries, I would post my work there and then forget about it.  So, I want to encourage all of my fellow scrappers to continue to "put yourself out there."  You never know where or when your work might catch someone's eye.  :)

June Midnight Rooster reveals - part 3

Happy Tuesday!  I apologize for this post being so little late in the day.  I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I fell asleep reading after dinner.  I guess that I must have been sleepier than I realized!

Well, as promised, here are my last two Midnight Rooster projects for the month.  I was going to retake the pictures of the second project (I'm just not happy with how they look), but a promise is a promise.  I'll try to get some better shots of it and post them later this week.

The little guy in the layout is so cute, but so N-A-U-G-H-T-Y!  He is puppy through and through - chews on everything, doesn't like to pee outside, etc., etc.  Funny story.  His momma let him outside Saturday night to play in the yard.  He was harnessed and on a staked lead by the back patio door near where I was scrapbooking.  Momma Tobi had run back to the bedroom to get something, and, the next thing I knew, Milo was romping into the living room!  (Romping is the only word I can think of to describe it, because he runs like a rolly poly bunny. :)  That little Houdini had wriggled out of his harness, run to the front of the house, and managed to let himself in through the storm door that had apparently not latched when we came from running errands that afternoon.  What a little stinker!  His family definitely has its hands full!! ;)

 Have a great day tomorrow!

more June Midnight Rooster reveals

I am *so* excited to share the rest of this month's Midnight Rooster projects with you!  As you can see, the first is a candy box.  You can find the "how to" instructions here on Midnight Rooster's blog.  The next is a simpler card.  (I needed a little change of pace after the 4.5 hour box! ;)
I will be posting my last two June Midnight Rooster projects (a layout and another altered project) tomorrow evening, so be sure to stay tuned! =)

June Midnight Rooster projects - part 1

Hi, All!  I can't believe that it's that time again - time to reveal Midnight Rooster's next kit!  The June 2011 kit, Calico Days, is super cute!  And, the handmade items are SO unique!  (Okay, I just realized that those first three sentences are all punctuated with exclamation points.  But, it really IS awesome!! ;)

So, without any further ado, here are the first two projects that I created with this incredible kit.


Be sure to stay tuned this weekend to see my other three projects!
