Argh Matey at Getting Cricky

This week the Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky is Called Argh Matey.  Make a project with a pirate or fish.  OK, when you see what I have made you are going to question my logic.  Well, now that I have my project made for the challenge I am questioning my logic as well.   Without checking the project theme, I relied on my memory of what is was that I had read a few weeks ago.  I guess my age is showing.  So without saying anything else, here is my project.

I remembered the project was something related to a pirate.  So I started looking at my fabulous K Andrew Designs Pirate Tales and Fish Scales Sentiment Stamps.  And I saw the cute stamp that says, "Your Friendship is a Treasure".  It was at that moment I decided to make a card with a treasure chest.  Well, somewhere along the way, my "treasure chest" also became an old "chest in an attic".  

My only explanation is that a couple of weeks ago my mom and I were up in her attic looking through my grandmother's old trunk.  It was so much fun and we found several treasures!  I guess that was still stuck in my mind.

I used the Cricut cartridge NIFTY FIFTIES for the dress form and the dress.  The treasure chest is from the Cricut cartridge LIFE IS A BEACH.  I added some old lace to the chest and filled it with multi colored gems. 

 I completed the card with a sheer turquoise ribbon and bow.  This is some of my favorite ribbon.  It is from JoAnn's and is a fabulous price for a large amount.

Please go and visit the DT over at Getting Cricky and see the wonderful projects they have created.  But, mostly we want you to join in on our challenge this week.  I am looking forward to seeing what you create with this theme in mind.


  1. I LOVE it and am enchanted by the trunk - how clever with the lace and gems. My BFF always tells me that we can interpret our designs in our own creative way: we are, after all, adults and can do some things OUR way. So, there you go - you didn't have a senior moment, you just excercised your adult creativity!!

  2. This is so gorgeous, Charlotte!! I agree with Larelyn...we interpret designs in our own creative ways!! This could be a pirate's treasure that has been stored away in the attic!! But it is truly beautiful!! I love the different colors and sizes of gems you used!! So pretty!! :)
