Sure, there are two basic ways to do it.

The first is to trap your opponent's arm by pinning it to your chest and hooking their back leg with your leg (both on the same side). Then bump and roll over to land in your opponents guard.

The second is to bump your opponent, shoot your hips back while you're on your side, and slip the leg out through the space to get back to half guard. From there, you can work back to full guard or play the half.
