Here is a list of foods you can have at your Pirate Party.
Deadman Fingers – Bread or cookie dough shaped into fingers, add a sliver of almond for the nail and take a knife and make grooves for knuckles.
Parrot Beaks – potatoe or orange wedges
Parrot Legs – Chicken drumsticks
Swimming with the Fishes snack mix – make chex cereal mix and dye it blue, then add goldfishes.
Beware of Shark Punch – fill icecube trays with cranberry juice and gummi sharks, freeze. then on party night put lemon lime soda in beverage container and add icecubes. the icecubes will color your soda and once the sharks are loose they will float to the top.
Long John Silver Peg Legs – chocolate covered pretzels (you will need the long straight pretzels)
Squirmy Octopus’s – Hotdogs cut in half and then you cut legs in the bottoms, pop into a pot of boiling water so the legs will curl and then take them out and serve.
Cannonballs – chocolate malt balls or cheesy puffs
Goonie Dubloons – Chocolate coins with the silver or gold wrappers
Catch of the day – Gummi fish, gummi sharks and gummi octopus
One-Eyed Willies Rich Stuff – Candy Rings, Dubloons, Candy necklaces or any kind of candy jewelry
Flesh & Lard on a Bisquit – Meat & Cheese platter with crackers
I just had to share these photos I took of a car I found parked in my doctors parking lot the other day. It was so weird and funky I just couldn’t help but take a few shots.
this person has either welded or glued all of these items onto the hood and roof of there car.
I’m not sure if this car would be considered street legal.
Yo ho, yo ho, a Pirates life for me.
Today I made a pattern for a pirates chest. here is the finished product. it looks so cute. it is about 3 inches high and 2 1/2 inches wide
it took me a little tweaking to get it right.. here are a few examples.
here is the final pattern and I added wood grain to the sides that would show.
then I plunked it down on my copy machine, put in some light brown card stock and printed the bad boy out.
I can’t wait to fill it with goodies and bling it out with some jewels.
So I guess it’s not completely finished. I will post pictures later when it is all shiny with jewels
I decided to make a Happy Easter card today for someone special. So I gathered some papers that coordinated.
paper I used was: card stock: light green & medium brown… patterned paper: eggs, mosaic and a Hoppy Easter paper.
I first took the light green 8 1/2 x 11 card stock sheet and folded it in half to make the base of the card.
I then cut the background paper to 5″ x 7″ and then cut 2 pieces from a medium brown card stock sheet 1 1/2″ x 4″.
On the backside of the background paper, apply adhesive at the top and the bottom and attach the 2 brown pieces.
Now i grabbed the other sheet of paper that had Hoppy Easter written on it. Cut around both words and then mounted it onto the same medium card stock used before. then again cut around that.
I had some faux grass. and decided that this would add some flare to my card. I cut off 6 blades of grass to use on the card.
using sticky dots I applied 3 blades to one side and 3 on the other.
With the last sheet of paper that had eggs printed on it. I cut out 2 large eggs and 3 small ones and also mounted it onto the medium card stock. then once the grass was on. I added the eggs and made sure 2 of the eggs covered the bottom of the blades of grass. I also added a little bling on the H in hoppy and R in Easter.
During the scrapbookusaexpo 2012 me and my sister chose to experience there VIP seat treatment. this entailed us receiving early entry (even before the early bird shoppers), a free cricut apron, seating in the exclusive VIP area, a make and take class, treats, a VIP host and an opportunity to enter into a layout page contest.
the contest: there were about 5-6 prizes to be rewards. The terms for entering was to submit a summer type scrapbook layout for judging.
I choose a fun array of photos from a terrific beach trip from years ago. Me and the same sister that accompanied me to the expo made a sandcastle on rock away beach in Oregon. Then decided to destroy thus said sandcastle before leaving. 🙂
This is a shot of what the 2 page layout looks like side by side (Sandcastle To destroy or not to destroy)
Here is my hand drawn sandcastle title. After I sketched it out with a pencil, I took my black marker and outlined it. Then taking 2 different blue markers filled the top portion in with the lighter blue and made waves with the darker blue. For the bottom I used doodlebugs design inc’s crushed flock, color light brown. To apply the flock. I applied liquid craft glue evenly where I wanted the flock, sprinkled it on top and shook the lose remaining flock onto a spare piece of paper and put back into the bottle.
To make the title pop even more I glued the title onto a piece of black card stock and used my Imaginise distresser around the edges. Then I chose to do it again but mounting it to a Fushia piece of paper this time and repeating the process.
I brought along with me some of my handmade die cuts. The little oysters from Alice in Wonderland are ones I make and sell on my Etsy site. click here. I thought adding these cute little oysters would be perfect for a beach layout.
Here are some of the products I used to make this layout. want 2 scrap black pearl bling, Imaginisce Destressor, Doodlebugs Design crushed flock, and my favorite adhesive runner Scotch advanced tape glider.
If you have any questions on how I made this page. Please let me know.
