Every pirate needs treasure .....


I LOVE these Hometown Summer papers from Pink Paislee .... they are just so bright and fun! This month at Kraft it Up is a number challenge and I just had to combine the two to create this page of my little pirate!

1 Kraft base .... check
2 Photos smaller than 6x4 .... mine are 3x4 .... check
3 Different alphas ..... matching Pink Paislee from Hometown Summer range and 2 colours and sizes of Jenni Bowlin ..... check
4 Patterned papers .... waves, yellow for island, black bingo and red star .... check
5 different embellishments .... embroidery thread, canvas pirate, coins, staples and journal spot ..... check

Mission accomplished!!


I also used some smooch spritz for the background.

A close-up of the coins that I "borrowed" from my little man ;) and yes .... he did want them back when he saw them .... so it took a little bargaining to not have them ripped from the page lol

Also check out the cool laser cut canvas pirate that I picked up from the Craft Expo. Just love him!
