The Pirate Party was so much fun to plan! The treasure hunt was a big hit, I am bummed I didn't get to go along... stayed behind to prepare things for their return. I thought it would be a cool idea for the kids to make their swords/knives to take along on the treasure hunt.... I begin to pass out the pre made swords... to only 1/2 of the 15 pirates at the party!!! PANIC!! I stayed up very late finishing the rest, and failed to place them with the others that were ready to "go"
that they got left behind! Thankfully a great friend offered to retrieve them from my home and in no longer than 15 minutes we were back on track, as I tried to keep boredom from setting in!
All turned out well, at Green Lane Park.... The weather was perfect... a little cool & windy, but nice! The Scene was perfect for a Pirate theme! Happy Birthday Jackson! We Love You!

I scraplifted from a magazine... sorry, I wish I could remember which magazine it was and the artist to credit. I remember that the LO in the magazine is a digital one. Two Peas has a digi kit
with a brush alphabet... I would love to learn digital techniques... but for now... I used my acrylic paints and brush.

Man, There's so much I want to do... IDEAS... and scrambling just to get them done before I forget and before my brain goes numb and I sink into another slump! Here are 2 photo-less
Layouts. I recite this prayer so much, I have been wanting it in some form or fashion hanging on my wall , but just never purchased a plaque as such, then it came to me... duh! Just create it myself. I don't LOVE LOVE it, but it's a start and I can just do another when I have more ideas
of what I would change about it.... SERENITY PRAYER. Then , going the other way completely.... This is a fun little 9x9 LO inspired by a little cocktail napkin I picked up at my mom's house during my visit.... I love what it says and I love a good " tropical drink" ( little umbrella icluded!) Enjoy!
