Shake your booty


     Arrrrrr is definitely the word of the day with this card.  I'm not happy with it at all, but here it is.  Our fabulous Mary J has chosen the theme of "circles" for the new challenge at TSG.  It took me forever just to come up with with the tent card idea.  Then I was concentrating so hard on not getting the score tape on the tent base stuck anywhere it wasn't supposed to be that I turned the dumb thing upside down and attached it the wrong way. grrrrr  The pirate ship paper is cute, but I think a bit too busy.  At least I'm happy with the hunky muscular pirate.  LOL (I'm more of a Johnny Depp with NICE teeth pirate girl) ☺
     I'm sure you can all find much better ways to use circles on your projects and play along with our challenge for a chance at a $5.00 gift certificate to the TSG store.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
