Midnight Rooster--Part Deux



I'm back!

I hope you all had a fabulous week--mine was definitely filled with a lot of sleepiness (I blame the baby), time with friends, poring over name books, laughing over crazy names with friends, and you get the idea:)

I'm excited to share the rest of my Midnight Rooster layouts with you today!




As you can see, I have a thing for dark mist these days--this one is Atmosphere by Studio Calico. One of these days, I want to find a dark black inky mist!



This layout is about the day I finally finally became a licensed lawyer. After 3 years of law school, 3 months of studying for the bar, 4 months of waiting for my result from the bar, and about 6 months of paperwork and jumping through hoops, it was about time! S and I meant to celebrate by going out to eat, but the only kosher restaurant around had closed, so we wound up eating a delish meal of chummus and crackers at Starbucks.


I'm not normally a card person, but decided to break out of the box for this one! This card was quick and easy and used up a bunch of leftover scraps. I also love adding pen detailing for a whimsical touch.

And while this has nothing to do with anything, I thought I'd add and share my joy that I finally snagged this purty necklace in exactly the color I wanted--how gorgeous is it? I found it at Allora Handmade (and I'm not getting paid by them or anything--just an enthusiastic shopper today!)

What's the last pretty thing YOU picked up?
