arrg!! a pirate for labor day?
I love this page! Love it! Not only is it made using the most recent Sketchy Thursdays sketch—which I LOVE— it is also chock full of fun!
My son is not dressed for Halloween, as you may think. He is, in fact, dressed for Labor Day! Nate had won a sword at a festival that weekend, picked this shirt out when choosing new school clothes, and then throw in a treasure hunt hosted by Grandma and you've got one heck of a cute Labor Day Pirate!
(Do you see that the Glossy Accents make another appearance here as rain drops? OK, so I'm not completely over it yet. I may give the stuff another chance.)
I did a lot of fun things with this page. I was able to use a great mix of Basic Grey Eerie and Pink Paislee paper, added Googly eyes to the skull, used some great Halloween embellishments I had left over from last year, and even threw in some "parrots," as Nate is quite concerned that pirates need to have a parrot.
I hope to see you over at Sketchy Thursdays today. If you missed it yesterday, we announced the new Design Team who start their term in October. Like I said, this week's sketch is fabulous!! At least for me it is—I just love multi-photo layouts.
This is also week two of the Etsy Shop Sponsors bonanza. And, my shop is one of the sponsors! This week's lucky winner will win prizes from 5 Etsy shops, including a set of Map flowers and Mixed Media Blooms from me! Check out my shop here!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great rest of your day!!
