July Monthly Challenge Theme: In the Deep Blue

July’s Monthly Challenge Theme
In the Deep Blue

This upcoming month’s theme is “In the Deep Blue, so choose an entry from your primary EFA shop with an ocean or sea influenced theme and enter, enter, enter !

There are many wondrous creatures in the ocean to inspire us...

Sea Creatures

Come along, come with me,

Take a dive in the deep blue sea.

Put on your gear, let’s explore

All the way to the ocean floor!
See that snail wrapped in curls?

Look! An oyster wearing pearls!

Watch the octopus oh so dark,

But don’t you dare to pet the shark!
Dive on down, seaward bound,

Motion in the ocean is all around!

Dive on down, seaward bound,

Motion in the ocean is all around!
Now we’re very far below,

The lantern fish are all aglow.

Is that a tiny shock you feel?

You just met an electric eel!
Giant blue whales start to stir,

Bigger than dinosaurs ever were!

Wave good-bye to the squid and sponge,

This is the end of our deep-sea plunge!
Dive on down, seaward bound,

Motion in the ocean is all around!

Dive on down, seaward bound,

Motion in the ocean is all around!

So what are you waiting for ?
