Big Adventures

I mentioned in my last post that I've been going on lots of fun summer outings lately.  I thought you might like to see a bit of what I've been doing.  Here is a page that documents some "big stuff" that I have seen on my outings.  This "big stuff" includes giant Lego sculptures at the local arboretum and Japanese spider crabs (the largest crab species in the world) at the local aquarium.
 
Supplies: patterned paper, alphabet stickers, & enamel shapes from October Afternoon; corner punch from Creative Memories; decorative tape from 3M/Scotch; flower from Prima; pen from Zig; household pencil; button & thread from my stash.

Would you like to see a couple more photos of Lego sculptures from the arboretum?  Here you go.  The artist, Sean Kenney, took hundreds of hours and thousands of Lego bricks to build each sculpture.



These summer outings have kept me so busy that I have not had time to link up regularly with the Summer of Color posts.  However, I am finishing up with the color prompts slowly but surely.  The "Big Stuff" layout in this post was inspired by the color prompt for week five.  I'll be back soon to share my layouts for weeks four and six.  Until then, take care!

Вау, Дениз! Страничка замечательная!
Какие интересные скульптуры из лего!!! у вас было интересное путешествие в дендрарий (хотя этот паучий краб...бррр, жуть, я бы не хотела не только близко к нему подходить, но и смотреть на него)
Wow, Denise! Page wonderful!
