Here we find ourselves already at Sketches In Thyme's Challenge #20. Where does the time go? This weeks sketch is from Scrapbooks Etc.. This adorable little pirate is my daughter, who celebrated her 3rd birthday on an authentic Pirate Adventure.
We have this wonderful summer activity called Pirate Adventures of Ottawa, and since Jayme is a summer baby, we just had to try it out. As you can see even I got into character. They gave each one of us a name-tag with personalized Pirate names, and that is what I used for the title, adding a little stamp telling Jayme "Me Heart is Yours". Of course everyone thought she was a little boy, until she took her skull cap off and let loose a full head of gorgeous blond hair. This was such a fun day, lots of laughter, finding hidden treasure, shooting water guns off the big boat as the bad pirate tried to take over the ship. Not to mention each pirate got a gold token to take with them. I would have used it on the layout but the gold clashed, so it is in her memory box.
I want to let you all in on a tip. I did not have matching paper with the funky shape shown in the sketch, so I traced a piece of Sassafras Lass paper with the fancy trim and then cut it out by hand. As for the glitter letters, the black space needed something subtle. I debated between Arr Matey, and Arr Mate, settling with leaving the y off and going with mate. Seems both mean the same and are both forms of "pirate talk".
Happy Scrapping everyone, I can't wait to see your compositions this week. This could even be used as a card layout don't you think!
