A post for Disney fans!

We spent all day yesterday at the beach to celebrate Memorial Day.  While driving there, we have to pass the marina.  In the corner of my eye, I saw what could be a pirate ship!  Now, I know that there have been sightings of The Black Pearl around the island as they shot the latest movie here on Oahu, but I thought the ship went back to wherever it came from as shooting is over.  Well, we walked about 15 minutes to the back of the marina to see if it was really Captain Jack Sparrow's ship...

We spotted a few more families trying to get to the other side of the ship where it was docked.  It looked so super cool!  It's just there, docked at Ko'Olina marina right next to the new Disney resort... probably waiting to be sent back to where ever Pirates 5 is going to be filmed.

And just because of that ship, I was in a Disney mood!  So here is my latest card:

Kept it super simple because Mickey took forever to cut out and assemble.  The cuts on this cart is so intricate but the results are so worth it!  Didn't make this for anyone... just felt like being a bit Disney!
