July CMK kit projects and other stuff

It's another Monday and the end of June. Once again I marvel at how quickly days and weeks and months just seem to fly by. I was always told that time will go by quickly as one ages, but I want it to slow down just a tad.
Today is going to be another hot one; probably hitting 100' again. We are due for a bit of a cool down for the rest of the week and maybe even get a nice Thunderstorm tonight and possibly later in the week. We haven't had many this Spring/early Summer and I actually miss them. When we first moved here 4 years ago I had never experienced anything like it. The winds, the rain, just the intensity. We were all freaked out and holed up in our basement, but quickly learned to enjoy them. We sit out on our front steps or back porch now and watch nature in all her glory. Amazing stuff, but I sure am glad not to live in the midwest where there are severe storms. No thank you. I just don't know how they do it year after year, I'd have a head full of grey hair!

I haven't mentioned kittens in a few days. heehee. They will be 5 weeks old tomorrow. Ashlyn and I discovered that there are 3 girls and 2 boys. Ashlyn seems to think Molly cares about this fact, but I doubt it. Some are eating and using the litterbox, some may be doing both, but since they are all black and pretty much look identical I can't nail it down. Sadly we are starting to look for homes for them. Meghan has a co-worker coming over today and she might end up taking one home, but I really want to make sure the one she selects can eat on it's own first... but then again, if they get hungry enough they will. I am a bit worried about Molly and how she is going to react, but we can't keep them. I wonder if she'll miss them.

Onto scrappy stuff. :) Here are 3 projects I created with the gorgeous July CMK kit. Have I mentioned that it's my favorite kit so far? The KARA letters are plain, but Kara wants them this way. These papers have a metallic thing going on which looks very cool, even plain and boring. ;) I've still got some more things to create, and hope to wrap it up today.

I auditioned out for the Chatterbox team, although I am not holding my breath. There was something like 437 applicants and I have no doubt that there is some amazing talent! I still have that teeny tiny little speck of a chance though, and I am eagerly awaiting the announcement of the ladies who will get a second audition. It would be so very cool to see my name, but I don't expect to. It would also be cool to see my scrappy friends names as well. Good luck girls! I am sure you are as anxious as I! Whatever the outcome you all rock!

I hope your Monday is off to a good start! :)
