CMK Blog Hop Time!!

Yes, it is that time again for the CMK blog hop to reveal the new kit for June! But, before I get to that, a brief recap of my very busy week...

I took a photography class on Wednesday with next door Lisa. After lots of messing around this week, I *think* i'm getting comfortable taking my Canon Rebel off of auto, lol.

On Thursday, we hit up one of our favorite parks.
Then I got to witness my baby riding his bike for a period without training wheels!
On Friday, I had a fabulous day helping next door Lisa celebrate her birthday. We left the kids with their daddies, hit up our LSS, got hot stone pedicures and went for lunch... bliss! That night, we had a block party to continue the fun. It's always a blast hanging out with this group, and down-the-street Heather came by, too (don't you love the names i've given my neighbors, lol?).

On Saturday, we had a morning mixed with work and play. Lots of laundry and stuff around the house combined with block building, playdough and dress-up. Then yesterday afternoon, I spent several hours outside working on my flower garden. After planting all the flowers in the last few weeks, it was finally time yesterday to dig a trench for the low brick wall we're buliding around the garden. It's looking good!
Finally, today, we went to a BBQ at another neighbor's house. We all had a great time, and i'm still full, several hours later!
Now, without further ado, I bring you my first layout using CMK's June kit. This kit is SO cool! Lots of bright bold colors and fun embellies! I had fun altering the Pink Paislee chip letters by sanding them and adding some polka dots. It's so much fun to scrap photos of Chloe when she was a baby!


Be sure to check out the blogs of the other CMK DT girls (links on the left)!

Well, my friends, I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. And for those of you who have loved ones in the military, I hope they come safely home to you very soon!!

I know I keep saying it but your kidlets are the cutest! Wonderful pictures.

And how cool is that layout?? I am totally into circle themes but I can never pull them off that well. And I would have never thought that the alpha's were sanded and painted on by you - they looked store-bought. Fantastic!
