Chillin' At The Zoo

Today I am showcasing one more page created with the colorful Rock Lobster kit from Scraptastic. This great sketch by Susan Stringfellow was the source of my inspiration:
 

Five of us flipped, turned, and otherwise twisted this sketch for our use. You can see all of them on Scraptastic's Sketchy Thursday Challenge Post. This is my interpretation:


With so many cards, pennants, and sticker embellies in the kit, it was easy to string up a bunch for a fun summery banner:


I love the riot of color found in the Simple Stories' I *heart* Summer collection:


It's hard to believe that August is on our heels already! I am relishing this look back at the start of our "school's out" adventures, and wish I could hang on to these carefree summer days just a little bit longer.
