International Talk Like a Pirate Day Blog Hop

AHOY there me hearties, 
welcome to the International Talk like a Pirate Day blog hop 19th September 2011 hosted by Captain Gill !

If ye has been sailin' the seven seas and landed on we shore, take a peak of we scrap book page or ye may be forced to walkin' the plank! Nar, we're not that mean of a pirate but we askin' for ye to stay a bit and sail from blog to blog to see what the other crafty pirates have in their blog chests.
The pirate on my layout is a free svg file from The Quilling Patch. I used ColorBox ink for the sand and water around the ship and all other outline accents. I drew the "X". The pirates adorable face comes from Peachy Keen Stamps.

I found a pirate ship PDF and traced it in Inkscape and cut it out on my Cricut using SCAL. It was the first time that I did the whole picture without converting. It took some time but I learned so much. The letters above the ship are the Cricut cartridge BlackLetters and the waves were a freebie svg file from SVGCuts.

In November of last year, I had a pirate party at my house for a mom's group I use to organize. We did pirate crafts, ate pirate food and went on a treasure hunt for "Gold" Fish. The pictures show what I and the other little pirates were up to.

It's time for ye to set sail again and see what other treasures are awaitin' for ye at the other blogs.
