Pirate Layout

This is the last for tonight. I'll get back to creating tomorrow when the next challenge recipe comes up. I have to tell you, I had to go the HL this evening. I broke the arm on my cutterpede. Broke it plum off!! It just about killed me to have to pay full price for it butttttttttt you know, when you use something everyday and it breaks, you got to replace it asap. No way could I wait maybe weeks for either them to go on sale or another 40% off coupon to come out. I've had that thing for years now and guess it could only take so much of my abuse!! LOL Anywhos, I've done another layout for http://paperplaytime.blogspot.com/ challenge #5. 'Ahoy Matey!' is the quote this week where Sandra is our Paper Queen! You've gotten until midnight EST Sunday the 4th to come up with something, so hop to it and create for this challenge. I do have to tell you that I really was going to make a card and not a layout. I had everything laid out on my Gypsy and got to cutting and couldn't figure out why everything was sooooo big. Well, I don't know where my mind was when I was planning all of this, but it sure wasn't in my head! Everything was waaaaaaay to big for a card. So, I decided to do a layout. The only thing I recut was the tree. It really wasn't quite big enough, so I cut it bigger. My little pirate guy, his clothes, hair, map, sword and treasure chest are from Paper Doll Dress-Up.  The palm tree and sun I got from Create-a-Critter and the sand is from Everyday Paperdolls. I think it turned out pretty cute. I know I'll use it for some of the Grandsons pictures. Got some good ones at the birthday party this past Sunday. Hope ya'll like my layout!! :)
If you have time, check out the Genie Lamp card I did for BittenByTheBug2 challenge below this post.
