Midnight Rooster First Sketch Inspiration

Hello everyone, welcome to the grand opening of the Midnight Rooster blog!!  I am very exited to be the first DT member to post something that will hopefully inspire you to get creating. 

I am big on sketches.  One of my favorite sketch artist is Becky Fleck. Her Pagemaps are world-renowned for their total awesomeness. I used this sketch of hers to create my layout.
Of course, I used the Midnight Rooster's "First Midnight Run" kit and add-on and a few things in my stash for this layout.  I love how easy it is to get started with a project with a sketch, I just need to find the photos in this case, because the supplies are already waiting for me in a box!

This is the time and place for me to go completely gaga over the Rooster stamp.  What can I say, that rooster is beyond extremely cute. Since it is a solid silhouette, there is very little work involved, meaning, I don't have to color it. I just stamped on my layout as seen here. 

I hope you enjoyed this little post and will now be itching to get your First Midnight Run so you can start your First Midnight layout :)
