Ahoy there !!

I have been having fun this afternoon playing around with Cap'n Jack Sparrow!! I know in my dreams.....LOL!!

I've made this altered CD door hanger for my son's bedroom door to save him yelling 'You can't come in' all the time!! This is my first attempt at altering a CD and I must say I really enjoyed it, probably the best use for the freebie Beach Boys CD from the Sunday newspaper!!

The gorgeous image of Johnny is from the Internet, love those eyes..... dream..... skull and crossbones is freebie clip art. I distressed the cream backing card with various inks and screwed it up a bit with the hope of giving it a parchment like texture, & letters are from Basic Grey (Black tie collection). Pirate flag charm is from Quizotic Paperie. I wanted to represnet Cap'n Jacks hair at the bottom, I used fibres from my stash plaited together with beads from my stash and charms. The key charm is from Jolees and the clam shell was also from Quixotic.
Here's the finished product hanging on the door:

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Simon Says Challenge: Let's go to the Movies
Quixotic challenges: Heavy Metal
Totally Gorjuss: Charming
Critter Sketch challenge: 10 items - 2 images, 2 papers, Basic grey letters, 3 charms, fibres, and beads.


  1. Great idea using Jack Sparrow - he is always nice to look at even if he is saying "keep out" :) I really like those beads at the bottom; it definitely has a pirate feel to it!
