How's this for fast scrapping?  This event was May 16, 2015!!!  I don't have a 2015 album going yet so I purchased a "holding" album yesterday until I get there.  My son will be so excited his most recent event is scrapped!  The next page will be a picture of my feet.  I was in a kayak chasing these boys down to get these pictures!

This fish from Kiwi Lane Paradise set is one of my favorite templates.

I won Connie's May Challenge and as soon as I received this cute paper pack, Wave Searcher from Fancy Pants with matching accessories, I had to make a summer card!  Connie and I were on the Kiwi Lane design team together last year.  So how perfect that I used the Kiwi Lane sketch this week with her prize!
