Pirate Presley Kicks Booty!

Arrrrr, Mateys!!  It's New Release Day over at Digital Deligths by LoubyLoo, and it looks like the place is overrun with Pirates!!

You will find Presley, Prissy, a whole assortment of accessories, and even a complete set of sentiments, as well as a wonderful array of coordinated pirate papers. 

My project uses three digital images... Presley the Pirate, the treasure chest, and the Pirates Kick Booty sign.  The beauty of digital images is being able to print them any size you like, as well as being able to flip them so you have a mirror image. 
For my treasure chest I printed it twice, once in flip, so I could have a front and back,
then added a 2 inch wide cardstock strip, scored and folded 1/4 inch all the way along each side, adhered down one side, across the bottom, and back up the other side, to create an open box. 
(Sorry I don't have a picture to show this... I am away from home, and those photos are on the other computer!  If you have questions, please leave a comment, and I'll add more when I get home!)
I trimmed the finger/thumb line on Presley's hand so he could hold the Kick Booty sign, and secured him to the side of the treasure chest.  Add candy, and you've got great Booty!!
Everything was colored with Copic markers, and the gems were highlighted with Smooch inks.  It's too bad the lighting doesn't show how shimmery they really are!

Check out these great Pirates, and you've got everything you need for your next invasion!

Happy creating!  And take time to reach out to someone who has made a difference in your life, and let them know.  May you be blessed today.
