Hanging with the Orangatangs.........





Went to the Zoo yesterday (yes again) LOL!! To practice the art of picture-taking with a friend. It was HOT HOT HOT and beyond HOTTER so we didn't hang around much. Did I mention how hot it was? I did get some fun shots of the orangatans, however, you'll need to use your imagination. The O's went from baby to full size and they are sort of orange. And they were pretty active considering how HOT it was. Fanning self while remembering. Of course there was a clown in the bunch using a piece of material as a prop while yukking it up for the crowd. And a baby that was totally mischevious, swinging from the jungle gym and annoying the adults that were snoozing in the shade because it was sooooooooooooooo HOT.


In desperate need of some really cool AC we dropped in at our  semi-local scrapbook shop K2 (because its all the way in Sarasota (insert eyeroll) and cooled off while picking up some goodies. I was going to give you a visual of said goodies, but now will need your imagination yet again. They had a first day of summer sale - 15% off and some 30% and up to 50%. Can't beat that in chilling out.
Primas because honestly, can you really have too many. Webster's Your Life, 7 Gypsies Picadilly, My Mind's Eye American made & Alphabet soup, WRMK Maple Grove and BG Lauderdale. More of those Jillybean Soup corrugated alphas because I ran out of W's of all things, Ranger - Stormy Sky because I didn't have a "blue-grey" distressed ink and seriously you can't round out a collection without it, and brown bazzill because I was running low *gasp* I know.

Happily, you'll find me at my scrappy desk today. *swoon*
