Pirate Blog Hop

Yo ho ho mateys and welcome to the Pirate Blog hop in honor of "Talk like a pirate day" today!  

Captain Lorby of Lorby's World is head of these here ships and the Captain of this ship and ye would be starting ur hopping aboard her vessel.  Her mateys have worked hard getting their ships in tip top shape for this hop so ye better stop by and see what they have done or someone along the way may make ye walk the plank.   So grab ye eye patch and your best bottle of coffee, tea, or water and let's do some pirate hopping and talking!
Our Blog Candy for this event is a digital pirate stamp from Captain Lorby. To be in the drawing for the digital stamp, you must comment on ALL blogs and become a follower of Lorby's World.

You should have come from me matey Ashley's blog at The Blog Hop Princess.

Ahoy matey!  Here is me project for this hop:

As ye can see, I made Pirate candy wrappers for Halloween!!  I have one of me FAVORITE candy bars all wrapped up -- Hershey's Milk Chocolate candy bars to be exact :)

Me paper is called "Dakota" and can be purchased through Close to My Heart.  Me pirates were cut using Cricut's Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  Just bought this cartridge and LOVE it!  The pirate bears were cut out at 3".  I think I will be making more of these and giving them to friends and family for Halloween!

That makes me think a bit -- I would like to offer up some blog candy to you me blog hoppers!  Comment on me blog and become a follower and I will choose one of you to NOT walk the plank but instead receive some "pirate booty" -- I will send you a set of 6 of me Pirate Bears to use for your own projects - Halloween or otherwise :)
