Pirate Scrapbook Layout and DT Call

Hi, everyone! Happy Wednesday! Today is week 37's reveal at The Paper Variety! We want you to scrap about the guys, especially now that Father's day is around the corner.

The challenge consists to create a paper project about or for a special man or boy in your life.

This was not a real challenge for me, since I have a stack of boy photos from my two sons just waiting to be scrapped!

Here is my take for this challenge:
It was a long time that I wanted to create a pirate scrapbook layout. So I took the chance with this masculine / boy challenge to scrap these photos about my boy dressed as pirate. My boy is at the "Bounty" ship that was stationed at Old San Juan's port last winter season. The "Bounty" was one of the ships used to film Pirate of the Caribbean movies II and III.

I used the sketch from Purple Pumpkin June Challenge. Loved this sketch!

Supplies are patterned paper from Echo Park Paper "For the Record"; alphabet: American Crafts; Flourishes: Prima Marketing Inc, and the black doily, all the so cute buttons and skull ribbon are from Purple Pumpkin.

I used my Sew Easy too with the straight stitch head and mat for hand stiching the red patterned paper. It took a lot of less time than I thought and I loved how it turned out!

Here is another close-up:
So sorry, for the bad photos, it has been raining a lot these days, here.
I used doilies and flourishes since they resembled to me the ship steering wheel and waves respectively.

The Challenge:
Look all the possible themes you can use for this challenge!

The Prize:

What a cute pirate. My daughter's birthday party this year was pirate themed and I still haven't scrapped any of the photos - maybe this month.
