Yep... it's that time again! (How can that be?? Wow, time is flying!). Before I show my May kit reveal layout, I just want to pay a quick homage to good friends. I hosted a ladies' night tonight - mostly neighbors. These girls are seriously the best. Such a fun, down to earth group. And how lucky am I that two of my neighbor friends are scrappers too? :-) Lisa, next door, is such an awesome friend. I mean, the girl got my kids into their jammies when they came back home tonight (they were hanging with the other neighbor kids), exhausted and grumpy (the kids, not lisa, hee). I'm SO spoiled to have such a good friend right next door - I don't know what i'd do without her! And Heather - she's such a sweetheart, and so fun, too! Have I told you all the story of how Heather and I became friends? She's probably sick of me telling this story, but I think it is so cool that i'm just going to continue to tell it (sorry Heather ;-). Last summer, Heather saw my layout about my n'hood in Memory Makers (my very first pub!). Well, my n'hood happens to be her n'hood, too! So, she looked me up on 2 Peas and introduced herself, telling me that she lives in my hood, and that she scraps, too. She made sure to emphasize that she wasn't a stalker, lol. Anyway, we met up last summer, and recently have been lucky enough to start hanging out more. And, I learned tonight that she makes some darn good Cosmopolitans!
Ok, ok, i'll stop rambling and get down to business... I seriously LOVE the May CMK kit. Yes, I know, I love lisa's kits every month, but I seriously always feel like she outdoes herself every time! This month, I was especially drawn to the yummy ribbons, the small Heidi Swapp letters, and the adorable leaf stick pins! I decided to sew the ribbons together to make a background for this photo of Chloe that I just adore (from last May). The cardstock is embossed with a leaf print, so I rubbed some of my metallic rub-ons over the embossing to emphasize the leaf pattern. Can't wait to play with this kit more! Don't forget to check out the other CMK DT girls blogs to see their layouts, too (links to the left)!
