LOAD Day 8 - Bedtime Adventures...

Arrrrgh! Here be Pirates!

Our layout challenge for today, from Lain, was to use Pirate 'something'
on our layout. Pirate themed supplies, pirate behavior, pirate song lyrics,
pirate booty, pirate ships, etc... As I read the challenge, the first thing
I thought of was the book we read nearly every night. "How I Became a
Pirate" by Melinda Long and David Shannon. It is a very funny tale of
Jeremy Jacobs' adventure with Braid Beard and his crew. Every time
BB makes a declaration, his crew repeats it. "Pirates don't tuck!"... "No
tucking!!", for example. This story has led to many a repeated
phrase followed by "Arrrrgh!!!" around our house.

It isn't saved for bedtime either. We throw lines back and
forth constantly. It has made our house sound like a pirate
ship a couple of times! It is fun and makes us laugh and
giggle as we, once again, shout "up yonder pole!" together.

Here are the supplies used to make the layout...
Cardstock - Bazzill
Patterned paper & pirate stickers - Sandy Lion
Roller Doodle Grid Stamp - Glitz
Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink - Ranger
Thickers Alphabets (grey) & Shapes - American Crafts
Remarks Alphabet (brown & yellow) - American Crafts
Walnut Inked shipping tags - from my stash
Raffia - from my stash

Day 8 is done and uploaded to Flickr.
