Real Pirates of the Caribbean

The Disney Movie I picked for this assignment is Pirates of the Caribbean.  This assignment came easily to me. In 2010 I had the opportunity to go on a Scrapbooking Cruise. One of the islands visited was the U.S. Virgin Islands. I have multiple pictures from Blackbeard's Castle.

I used Navy MM Grid Paper to go with the panoramic photos on top of page 1. The photos are overlooking the town of Charlotte Amalie, U.S. Virgin Islands.

 I did use a postcard for Blackbeard's Castle because my photos had too many distractions in them. The statue of Edward Teach (Blackbeard the Pirate) is shown in front of the Castle lookout. I used glitter cardstock in place of the pirate coins that I could not find.



 The center photo with pirate crossing sign is area where the bronze and copper statues were located. Blackbeard's Castle was built in 1678 by Denmark. The Castle overlooks the town of Charlotte Amalie in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The map was a post card with an oval bubble over the city we visited.

The brochure of coins I reduced and made a small book. I had bought some pirate coins but could not find them for this layout.


The photo on the right lower is the 99 stairs to get back down to town.

Below are close ups of some pirate statues. Hope you have enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed putting this together.

I love this! The colors and photos are amazing! Love the glitter cardstock...the texture actually looks like the castle looks. I've been to Charlotte Amalie on cruises a couple of times, but have never been to Blackbeard's Castle. So, now I need to go again! The map, the little booklet, and the various cuts all work fabulously together!

Julie - the colors are so great for the Caribbean. This layout shows your trip so well. I really like the maps and the street sign photos. This layout really tells the story of Blackbeard and the castle. The panoramic photos are beautiful.

Love your pirate gold, Julie, great idea! I like the use of the postcards and maps to enhance the story in the layout. The views, the statues and the signs all give a great feel for this pirate haven. Using the acrylic 'bubble' to focus on the area on the map that you visited is another great idea!!

I love how you incorporated some of your souvenirs into the layout.
