Challenge YOUrself Blog Movie Challenge "YO HO - YO HO!" #62

Hello Scrappy Peeps!  Thanks for stopping by today  - I hope the weather has warmed up a bit where you are!  We've had some pretty COLD weather here in New Jersey - the perfect time to spend nights at home scrapping!  It is time for this month's Challenge from the Challenge YOUrself Blog!  Challenge #62 asks you to create a layout - using a "movie theme" and be sure to INCLUDE YOU in your layout!!  HOP on over to the Challenge YOUrself Blog for Prize and Challenge Info - and be sure to check out all of the AWESOME inspiration from the other members on the Design Team!

My layout is inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean movies!  One of our favorite vacations is a Disney Cruise - and one of our favorite events is "Pirate Night!"  There is an awesome show on the top deck, where Capt. Hook, Capt. Mickey and all the characters appear!  Many guests - us included, "dress up" as Pirates for the night - and we even get to have our picture taken with Capt. Jack Sparrow! 
These photos are from our Disney Magic Cruise in October of 2017 - we sailed out of NYC to Port Canaveral, Florida and back. Pirate Night also fell on our 35th Anniversary - It was a special and memorable way to celebrate with our family!
 Here are some close ups for you 
- I used lots of "stuff" from my "stash."  

My favorite way to add journaling is to create a "pocket" behind a photo, using 3 strips of 3D Foam Tape - one on each side and one along the bottom.  I usually decorate the front - and write on the back, adding some type of "pull tab" to the top.
I hope I've inspired you to play along with us this month at the Challenge YOUrself Blog - I can't wait to see what MOVIE inspires you!
