A little hidden treasure for Lexi's Creations

This week at Lexi's the challenge is "something old". Well I decided to also do a little challenge my sil and I find a use for a toilet paper roll. I had stumbled over someones blog where they had used one for a pocket and I snagged that idea right up. lol Wished I would have saved the blog so I could thank them. The sleeve part is a cardboard roll from toilet paper. I found a piece of older paper in my scrap pile so decided to use it. I used two of Lexi's stamps.....Scruffles treasure and Scruffles map. I also used my little Edwin pirate from Magnolia. Other old things are the coins, charm and twine. I have all for years and am finally glad to find a use for them.

Challenges I am entering in are:

Digital Tuesday - this was so fun to find this is to color with chalks. I got a bit excited as I always color with chalks and Dove pen. I have copics but cannot get the hang of using them. I do use them for skin but then shade with chalks or colored pencils or both. lol The two stamps from Lexi's are digital.

My Time to Craft xtra special I made this with a certain grandson in mind. (besides, what is more special than getting a roll out of toilet paper for your birthday! lol)
