ABC Blog Hop- X

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter X. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their X element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Darlys then you're on the right track!

For my X, I did an X Marks The Spot layout for our International Talk Like A Pirate Day activities!

I sponged a piece of Colonial White Cardstock with Desert Sand ink to give it an aged treasure map look. I added a strip of the Urban Paper down the middle of the layout and arranged my photos on it. I love the weathered look of this particular paper, and the colours worked well with my photos and embellishments.

The title, x, treasure map and pirate ship were all cut from my Cricut. I added a journalling pennant, drawing attention to it with the nautical button from the Urban Assortment and a piece from the Urban Complements.

This layout uses Saffron and Peacock as the main colours, with touches of Black and Cranberry.

Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Linda of Scrappy Therapy.
