Well I'm so excited to have gotten another LO done!!! I know many of you can just whip them out, I'm not that kind of scrapper, it takes me forever. I started this Lo yesterday and finished it this morning. I was able to combine 4 different challenges!!! Whoop Whoop !! I thought combining 3 was a challenge but I upped my own goal!!!
I used the sketch from The Scrappiest, this will be the first challenge for me with them! I really loved this sketch and thought it would fit perfectly with the other challenges I wanted to combine!!

Here's the Sketch-

Here's my take on the sketch!
If you look closely I put dashes around the outer layers and had a starting point to the treasure chest!

Over @ Crop Suey the March challenge was to use tape on your LO/project/card.
I had decorative tape that I have had for many years and never used. This was the perfect opportunity to use it!!! 

If you look closely at the LO above you will see it right above the treasure chest!

The third challenge was from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The challenge was a Boy theme and to use ribbon/lace/trim on your LO/card/project. I used the wavy ribbon to make a SUN, it was white so I used my ink pad to color it!

The fourth challenge that pulled everything together was @ Two Scraptastic Gals
The challenge was to use the Life's a Beach cartridge. I don't have that cart, so I was hoping like other challenge blogs if you don't have that cart you can substitute for something close???? I don't know if this is in the rules on this challenge blog but hey it's worth a try! I understand if it is not accepted I just wasn't sure, I still would have done the same Lo either way!

Here's a closer look at my treasure chest and all it's gold and jewels!!

This was the first time I have ever used any kind of spritz or color spray. I unfortunately got the Brilliant idea after I had everything on my page! Yep BIG mistake!!! I had to get tracing paper and redo the Pirates leg!! I don't know why I think I can do all these things after the point of it being to late!! I still however love the look!

More of the Recipe-

Hope you liked my LO!
