Arg! Thar Be Pirate Treasure! -Ocean Vacation-

The day before my brother's birthday, we had a little surprise for him. He's really into pirate things, so my mom and dad put together a treasure chest filled with treasures. That included gold coins, a big blue diamond, shinny necklaces, little skeletons, crystal candle holders, and glass stones. We buried it at the beach one morning, than had my mom bring him outside. We made a map and put it in a bottle, and when Daniel wasn't looking, he threw it into the water. He found the bottle, got the map out, and started searching for buried treasure!

Details on the map: I looked up the beach on Google Earth and sketched it out on a piece of paper. I scanned that into the computer and I colored it in Photoshop. My dad printed it on some tan textured paper, and crinkled it up to give it an aged look. He also used a lighter to burn the edges for a more aged look.
