Sunday Sketches...Let's Hang Out On The Monkey Bars!

I'm officially on vacation!
I know I keep saying that, but it feels so good I can't help myself! And if you've been reading my tweets, Facebook posts or blog you probably know that I've ended up in Illinois for the next few days "hanging out with family and friends".  Which is what inspired my latest mini...that again features the iconic sock monkey! I think I may end up calling this little trip the "end of summer Sock Monkey tour" Hey, I think I might have just landed on my next mini! hehehe!
Ok, enough monkey'n around let's get to the sketch! 
Breakin' it down...monkey bars...school yard style!

A big thanks to my sis, Shari for her hospitality...it's been amazing! Here's a quick pic of the two of us before we went out on the town last night for a little dancin'! And yes, we even did the monkey! (sorry no pix to share of that!<<>>!)
Have a super Sunday and be sure to pop by Sophia's Blue Chair Diary "Sunday Sketches" and check out all of the fun and creative shares there too!

the sock monkeys are in back to school mode, I think. So nice for you to have some family time.

What a couple of cute characters...both monkeys and sisters ;)
I love the details and colors you achieve in your sketches. This one is so whimsical and joyous...maybe a reflection of your family time together.
