I always feel better if I can start with a clear idea of a paper line... then I just have to master the layout. And when I took this picture last summer, I knew that this was the perfect paper for it! I loved this idea of a tiny pirate on an inflatable raft. And when his Uncle and Dad gave him a beer, it just didn't get any better!
I used Echo Park's A Pirate's Life paper. The center line of skull and cross bone paper is lifted up with pop-dots. It gave me a great avenue to layer paper and stickers. I used a one inch punch to pop out the circles from a different paper line - I did not fussy cut that madness! I am quite thrilled with how it turned out and I feel like it really celebrates this memory!
