Captain Skippyjon Jones


ScrapMojo Challenge 37 is: We want you to scrap a page about your name (or someone else). Do you love it, hate it? Perhaps you have your heart set on a different name. Well we want to know about it. Second part of the challenge is to try something new.

I did the origin of Captain's name. I thought scrapping the story of how he got his name would be a good place to begin anyway so this challenge was well timed.

I had a dream the other night, and when I woke up all I could remember about it was vividly seeing lime green and red. So my try something new is using colors from a dream as inspiration.

And I had another excuse to make a treasure map somewhere! It is our map to his name. I stamped it with the letter l and then filled it in with a brush. His name is hand stamped with acrylic paint as well. I managed to keep the mess to a minimum. The piggies and Captain helped.

I just got that cute picture of Captain in the reading tent printed too.
