Talk about working until the last moment! Holy cow….I have been planning on making this project for a while now…but was only able to create it literally 3 hours before the submissions closed. Ok..I guess I need to back up and explain myself. This is what happens when I have a migraine. Sweet Pea Stamps was having a call for layouts using their beautiful images. And I had to participate! So I did…..but once wasn’t enough! You were actually allowed to submit up to 3 layouts. But, as time would have it…I only am going to be able to do 2. I’ll make the 3rd eventually…I even printed out the photos. But it will have to wait.
My family and I threw my mom a surprise party a few years back. Looking at the age of my kidlings in these photos, it was almost 4 years ago! My mom is just plain nuts about pirates. And we have actually thrown her a couple of pirate parties. So this was one of them.
Look at how teeny my babies are!!! To set off these photos, I used ching-chou kuik’s Unregrettable Pirate Life. I colored her with alcohol and watercolor markers.
She’s so pretty. I have used this stamp a number of times. She’s a favorite of mine.
Check out that treasure chest cake that my sister Pam made! Isn’t it amazing?! And it was SO yummy!
Thanks for checking out my page. Sorry this post is all kinds of wacky. I feel awful, but I wanted to get this page made and submitted to the contest. Now that it’s done, I feel a bit better. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
