When I Grow Up I Want to be a Pirate

The second monthly challenge at Scrap Our Stash is a sketch with a twist, the twist this month being the requirement for six buttons on the page.

I picked two old 4x6 photos of my son with pirate face-paint for this one and cropped them to 4x4. I wanted to use a skull and cross-bones border strip so I rotated the whole sketch to accommodate this better, and made the circle larger to encompass my title. I normally like to have matching buttons on a page, but I have an assortment here, five on the left and one at the top right.

Cardstock - DCWV Linen Closet Stack
Paper - Junkitz Extreme Boy
Letters - Junkitz Extreme Boy, Lily Bee Double Dutch
Ink - Ink It Up! 
Buttons - from Stash
Thread - DMC
