Ahoy Mateys!

It's International Talk Like A Pirate Day today.  Does anyone have anything special planned to celebrate? 

Gill is hosting a blog hop for both mates and land lubbers.  You should have sailed here from Lass Leslie-Rahye's .   

For my piratical project I made an Emergency Pirate Kit.  The book is actually one of those boxes that looks like a book but has room inside to hide important pirate stuff.  The treasure map I found on the internet, printed out and crumpled up.  I also ran over it with a little Rusty Hinge Distress Ink to give it some age. 

The eye patch is from SVG Cuts Pirate Birthday Party SVG Kit.  You can find it here.  I actually made eyepatches for my Mateys at work to wear today.  That should really make things interesting.

I also included a list of important pirate words and their meaning.  There's lots of pirate-y ideas and other info at the official International Talk Like A Pirate Day website, even an English-to-Pirate translator. 

I also have a bonus project.  Today is also Design Team Monday for The Scrapoholic.  Jill created some Disney-related SVG files.  Ironically, one was a pirate Mickey. 

To continue on the Pirate Blog Hop, next in the line-up is Lass Corri.  I love comments, so please let me know what you think of my projects today.  Everyone have a great week and an especially great International Talk Like A Pirate Day!
