Pirate Game Photo Tags

Published April 26, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

We decided that we would not only use these photo tags to play the “who am I game” but also to divide our guests into 2 teams for games. So we chose to take characters from the movie Goonies and Pirates of the Caribbean.
I first typed up all the names using a pirate text and printed onto a white sheet of cardstock paper.

Then using both red and white inks I spotted and smeared color onto the names.


Now cut them out.

Glue them onto a black cardstock sheet of paper and cut around them again. (Leave a little more black on the bottom of the photos for embellishments)

print out photos using the wallet size onto another sheet of white cardstock. Cut around these, mount them on black cardstock and cut around them again also.

I used a brown/green raffia ribbon.

pull on the raffia and expand it.

Tie around the bottom of the mounted photo and tie into a knot.

Now add the cut and mounted name onto the photo.

Last but not least. adding a safety pin to the back. I used large safety pins to make it easy to pin onto a guest.

Taking a piece of tape. Place it over the pin and tape to the back of the photo tag. you are now finished.

characters that we made are:
Goonies: Mikey, Brand, Chunk, Mouth, Andy, Stef, Data, Sloth, Jake Fratelli, Francis Fratelli,, Mama Fratelli, One Eyed Willie
Pirates of the Caribbean: Captain Jack Sparrow, Pintel, Captain Barbossa, Ragetti, William Turner, Elizabeth Swann, Davy Jones, Captain Sao Feng, Boot Strap Bill Turner, Captain Blackbeard.

Getting down at the scrapbook expo

Published March 30, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

me and my sister were at the scrapbook use expo 2012 all day on saturday. we received many fabulous items, won drawings and participated in extra fun games.
the dj had games going throughout the day to keep things fun and to give you a reason to get out of your chairs (well another reason then going and checking out all the fantastic deals at the vendor stations)

we watched a race against time scavenger hunt. where the 2 teams (blue and red) had to go to different vendor stations and find there colored circle and beat the other team back to the dj station before the other team collected all of theres.
then we had a tug of war. we did get into this one and got our butts handed to us on the 1st pull. congrats to all the woman that won this even after 4 pulls.
here are a few shots of the action.


then we had a dance contest. they warmed them all up with a zumba lesson. then each stage to be able to stay in you had to receive an item from one of the floor judges.
1st stage – marti gras beads
2nd stage – marti gras mask
3rd stage – u guessed it a marti gras boa.
the final stage they would change up the music every 10 seconds.
i was so proud of my sister she did the change overs so well. think about going from doing moves from thriller to a country hoe down.




Here she is (the 3rd one in pink.. oh course) with the 4 top finalist.
