Goodness, that is half the reason I buy so much paper! lol
I have been inspired by the "Out of the Box with Helmar" October Challenge!
Back in May we went to Disney World to celebrate Parker's 5th Birthday. It was a great trip! We stayed in the Disney resort where the rooms were Pirate themed, the beds were ships! After we got to out room Parker asked me if he was dreaming! It was so honest and sweet! We had not even been to any of the theme parks yet! We took him to the Pirate's League for the full experience of costume, makeup and a photo shoot. He loved it! I had no idea that everyone would be so totally in character! It took close to 2 hours for the entire process start to finish. His official pirate name became Tobias Sharkbite.
The aged paper background is a digital download from The House Across The Bay. It's from the cardmaker series originally supposed to be 4x4 square. I love it blown up! Most of the other elements are from Pink Paislee, the Hocus Pocus and the new Phantom line. It took a while to fussy cut Spooky out of the 12x12 page...but so worth it! I know there are a ton of retailers out there, but one that has the most exceptional customer service is Blue Moon Scrapbooking! I was able to get every single item of the Phantom collection there! LOVE it! The only store near me to get craft supplies is Hobby Lobby. I do frequent them a lot, but wish they carried a bigger selection of my favorite companies!
